It's not paranoia if people really ARE out to get you.

Have you ever been in that position where you think there's a big giant joke involving you and you're the only one who doesn't know about it? No? I had one of those moments today, where I walked into a room full of people and everyone stopped talking. You could hear a pin drop.

Maybe it's because I'm so gorgeous they had to stop and stare, but somehow I don't think so.... (this affirmation comes mostly from the fact that I'm wearing baggy jeans and no make-up).

Maybe it was just one of those natural pauses in conversation that happen when everyone has run out of things to say.

Maybe they had the feeling that the exclamation that was about to come out of my mouth was soooo profound, that they all had to stop and hold their collective breath while I spoke.

So now I'm on a mission to find out exactly what the joke is... and how I can be a part of it. Perhaps there is some giant practical joke going on that I'm not participating in.

Or maybe I'm paranoid and I should drink less coffee.

Happens at work too - makes me very twitchy. Maybe they're all jealous of my wonderous intellect....

Yep, been there. Done that. I usually ask if I'm the reason they all stop talking and if there is something I should know or would they prefer me to leave again. Makes me feel incredibly powerful in stead of twitchy.
Not that it happens that often (anymore). And I can't blame people for talking about me. I'm my favourite subject too ;-))

Let us know what the joke was/is, if you find out. I'm curious.
