In the eye of the brainstorm


Just got out of a brainstorm workshop. Felt a bit awkward being apparently the most introverted, least adjusted, at the table. I hope we’re not graded on external displays of participation; insta-fail, me. Much of my contribution was listening and processing, which I’m told can be misinterpreted as reticence in extrovert company.

I wonder if other people feel the same uncertainty after times I’ve been the one who’s had the most to say. I don’t know what the phrase is for when sometimes you have stuff done to you, sometimes you do stuff to other people, but if I say “swings and roundabouts” maybe someone will get mad and tell me the right one, so -

Swings and roundabouts.

Off home now to pat the cats and play some Avernum.
