last night i was at adrienne's house for dinner. i don't know her all that well, so conversation is still a bit uncomfortable. and as small-talk turned into real-talk, conversing got even harder. i think she sees me very differently from how i see myself. when we talk, it seems she is either attacking me, or feeling attacked by me. i found it challenging just to keep the conversation a conversation, and not allow it to become an argument or discussion. i had to clarify, back-peddle, and gently ease her out of defensiveness all night. it was exhausting.
