I have a friend who is quirky and fun. First of all, she looks like Snow White. She wears colorful tights and jumpers. Sometimes she speaks with a funny accent. She has the kind of personality that grows on you, and the more I spend time with her, the more I like her. She is enthusiastic about getting involved in activities.
One time when we were eating breakfast at La Madeleine’s on a Saturday morning, I asked her, “Are you a joiner?”
She knew exactly what I was talking about. “Absolutely,” she replied. If there’s a club, she’s in it, and she usually holds an office too. She doesn’t go out of her way to avoid committees the way I do.
I do The Long Pause. While everyone is encouraging me to jump in, I stand there and wait because I savor that minute before I jump.
And so it has been with Twitter, a long pause between when I thought I might want to be in the stream but relishing the quiet before I jumped in. I did. I’m on Twitter now. Join me? I’m Rachel Meeks (@SmallNotebook).
