Welcome to this week's edition of True Confessions. This week it's personal. NOT LIKE THAT! My goodness people, get your mind's out of the gutter!

My confession is I HATE to do things alone. Now don't mistakenly think this means I don't like to be alone, because I do, at home, or singing in my car, at the pool, and sometimes I even enjoy shopping alone. But last week I was dropping off the kids at VBS, leaving me 2 hours with just myself and I. Being cheap and poor I wasn't wasting $4/gal gas driving home and back. So, I found myself picking up something in the drive-thru and eating in my car to avoid going into a restaurant all by my lonesome. I had a book and an ipod, so it's not like I would've had to even make eye contact with anyone around. What is WRONG with me? I chose to sit in my car and watch my many episodes of Dexter instead of buying an iced coffee and nursing it in an a/c filled Starbucks. And don't even think I would consider in my wildest dreams going to a movie alone.

So what about you? Got any deep dark secrets you want to share?


awww...this is not so bad. I don't mind being alone, even at a movie or a coffee shop. I think growing up I was alone so much that I got used to it.
I HATE talking/standing next to very tall women. I am only 5'1, and I am fine w/ that unless I am next to someone 5'11. Men, it is ok, but not next to a woman. I feel like an elf. silly, I know.

I have never gone to a movie alone either.

I can do a coffee shop by myself or food but still haven't worked up to a movie.

I love being alone. I would love to go to the movies by myself. I used to skip college classes just to go hang out with myself because everyone I knew would assume I was at class. I think I'm some sort of freak.

Hope you're having a great vacation. :) The "Holiday" video made me giggle.

I can't count how many lunch hours I have spent eating fast food in my car because I preferred that over eating alone in a restaurant. I have never even considered going to a movie alone.
Have a great vacation!

I've never been to a movie alone either. I usually stay in my car just because I get too distracted to read when I'm in a coffee shop or restaurant.

I don't like eating in restaurants alone, but movies? I go alone every week to a matinee. It used to be Fridays, but now that school is out, I changed it to Mondays. I just hate sharing the theatre with a bunch of people.. I pack my lunch too, or buy it on the way.
Noting better than laughing as loud as you want, and not have someone ask you what something meant.
Just remember, in the movies, no one is looking at you, well, unless you are really hot, and more entertaining than the movie...which I'm not.

I have heard of this phenomenon. In fact I first heard of it in Waiting To Exhale when Robyn will not go out to dinner by herself. I did not then and still do not comprehend, I am afraid. Whatever I do not have to shop for, prepare, and clean up after? BRING IT. In fact I went out after work with my girlfriends yesterday for thirsty thursday and all I could think of, was, were these wenches not with me I COULD DRINK THE BUTTERY SAUCE FROM THE BLACKENED SHRIMP STRAIGHT FROM THE LITTLE CAST IRON PAN.
So, um, I guess my main issue would be, uh, selfish, much?
yeah, that would be me.

You know me...my tolerance for companionship is limited!! I am SO good with the alone thing!!! Maybe next time we go out I will just leave you alone for a while...we will work up to you doing it by yourself!! :)

My confession is that I would almost rather do things by myself. Is that bad?
