My social battery
One thing you should probably know about me is that I am an introvert. I know some people say there’s no such thing as introverts (“It’s all in your head!”) — but who cares what those people say. Introvert or not, I get tired after spending considerable time among people.
These people don’t necessarily have to be strangers: a good conversation with my wife, my friends, and my parents (oh, they’re the worst!) — will make me seek solitude, ideally in a horizontal position with a good book, feeling as if I’ve just completed a 10-mile jog.
