Back when I was cool, I used to laugh at people like me.

I do NOT miss going to work everyday. After 14 years, I was starting to hate my job. However, you know what I do miss?
Oh my God, I miss it.
When I am out and another human adult speaks to me, I lose my mind. I’m like “YOU WANT TO TALK SOME MORE? I CAN TALK SOME MORE. I DON’T HAVE TO BE ANYWHERE IN PARTICULAR AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME!”
I went to visit my grandparents on Monday night and I talked so much, my jaw hurt and my lips were numb. And I’m not even kidding.
Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to my daughter during the day. I love how she tries so hard to talk to me and how she smiles when I look at her. And I love when my boys come home from school and they tell me about their day. I love that more than anything.
But oh how I miss talking to someone who doesn’t puke on me while I’m in the middle of a sentence or whose vocabulary doesn’t consist of “that sucks, crap, poop and fart”
I think I might be going a little crazy, not being around adults.
I think. Maybe not, but quite possibly.

    well, for me, most of my convos with my husband involve “that sucks, crap, poop and fart.”
    I guess I’m like that sometimes, but I’m such an introvert so the big deal is just for me to get my ass out into the real world.

    I know exactly what you mean. I just moved and know absolutely no one in this town. It can get very lonely. I am sure I drive my husband crazy talking his ear off when he gets home from work. You know you are craving adult conversation when you call your cell phone company and end up talking to the customer service rep for 45 minute, none of which had anything to do with your service.

    oh my god, I totally understand. I’m now living by myself for the first time ever ( no boyfriends, no nothing, just moi! ) and after a day or so on my own I BABBLE to people when I’m over. The first week I moved in, I went over to my Mum and Dad’s and talked to my Mum pretty much non stop for HOURS until my jaw hurt! heh heh. we is crazy persons and I loved that psycho Spidey dance

    I was there. I totally understand. Now, on campus, I just won’t shut the fuck up. I’ve got two and a half years to make up for here.

    I’ve been at home for 15 years with an 18 month break in there. I soooooo know what you mean! I’m 44. I haven’t even got a lot of time left to go visit with friends. My youngest is only three. It’s lookin’ like I’ll have to wait until I get to the old folks home before I can spend time with adults again!

    People think I’m crazy now. Before I was married and had kids, I didn’t talk much, but after only talking to kids all day, I’m dying to have someone say something besides “I’m thirsty!” or “I’m hungry!” If I go to my mother’s house or anywhere for that matter, I talk the entire time I’m there.
