I love hanging out in crowds about as much as I love crowds….. That said, I do enjoy seeing people (individually) but group gatherings are really the most stressful awkward things I ever have to endure.
So I never stay long. I just can’t.
So I went to the Reception, had a diet pepsi, chatted with a few people I knew, and yes, left. I can’t interrupt folk when they’re socializing and at social events they’re socializing. If I catch you when you first arrive it’s all good. After that, nope.
So for me SBL concludes tonight. I had a great time. DV, next year in Boston.
