On the other hand, I definitely like having time to myself. I have quite a talent for making my own fun. How much of that is because of the particular circumstances of my childhood isn't clear to me, but I'm certainly good at it now. Many of my preferred leisure activities aren't really things I do with other people.
I was thinking about this tonight as I had a series of activities, starting with going out to dinner alone and ending up in a house in the suburbs with only the two cats for company. I'm not the first to observe that dining out alone is unusual. I do it quite a bit, particularly when travelling alone. While digitalemur teases me about being that Asian taking photos of dinner, I find that documenting my meal helps me focus on the food, even if I decide later the meal wasn't worth blogging about.
It was a bit odd doing my physical therapy while the orange tabby stared down at me from his perch on the arm of the couch, though.
