Make Yourself At Home

I've discovered that I have the innate ability to really make myself at home. People sometimes tell me to do so when I'm visiting folks I don't know very well, but they didn't need to, I'll pretty much move in the moment I arrive. If I'm in someone's car for a 10-minute ride, it will take me 10 minutes to collect all the stuff I took out of my jacket pockets and backpack once we arrive at our destination, and then I'll leave my coffee on top of their car when they drive off. I have friends who can never relax when they go to relatives' or in-laws' homes, and I've never understood them. One aspect of my willingness to relax is that I assume everyone will behave the same way when they come to my house, so I could do more to make sure they're relaxed. So if you ever stop by, go ahead, take your shoes off and change the music. I don't mind. I'll do the same when I get to your place.

  1. I'm exactly the same way! Too bad everyone isn't so laid back...
