Sometimes, I wonder if instead of trying to get a grip on my social anxiety, I should perhaps embrace it wholeheartedly.
The man at the Royal Garden Inn front desk was quite friendly, chatting with Sexy Nerd and helping us get settled in Waikiki.
He asked if we've been to Oahu before and Sexy Nerd said yes, about 5 years ago, to get married. The conversation and check-in process continued.
Hotel Clerk, looking at me and talking to Sexy Nerd: Well, since you've been to Hawaii before, you can show her around the island.
Sexy Nerd: She's been here before too. *Awkward Pause* That's who I married.
And there I was, my mind flooded with thoughts along the lines of "DUH!"
Out on the Royal Garden Inn balcony, my hand to my forehead as I recall that bizarre social interaction.
