Me: Oh shit, did she ask me how I am? I’d better say something. *Quietly* “Fine thanks” *Louder* “How are you?”
Her: “Okay, thanks. How about you?”
Me: She’s smiling. Ugh, I guess she didn’t already ask me. Oh my god, what do I do now? She’s waiting for some sort of response. Why did she talk so quietly? Why didn’t I pay more attention? There is too much going on here! *Nodding like a weirdo* “Mmmhmmm…” What the hell kind of response is that? When has that ever been the right thing to say? I can’t take it back now.
Her: *Stares at me, still smiling*
Me: *Looks away*
