Yesterday, something great and terrible happened. I have been going to a small, family-owned coffee shop on the same day and time every week for long enough that I've become a "regular" and they've memorized my order. To the truest of introverts, this is the greatest dilemma. Upon hearing "Oh, it's you! Green tea bubble tea, right? Large, right?" I was immediately struck with two conflicting thoughts. The first was, "This is what you dreamed of every time you were lonely for no reason in the middle of this crowded city." The second was, "Oh, god, they know me now. I can never come back here."
