Daily Tidbit of Wisdom #220: Having problems finding buddies to go out with to Monster Truck events, pro wrestling matches, etc.? Pretend till you befriend! You've probably seen some guys at the gas station, or bbq/ribs shack, or Walmart, and wanted to introduce yourself. Just walk right up to those guys and act like you have some smidgen of the confidence your mama and the good Lord gave to you. And if you get nervous just remember this tip: you can't spell 'afeared' without 'ear,' so just stand and listen and nod your head and smile.
I feel like at my age now, I'm trying to pare down friends not make new ones. I also enjoy solitude much more.
