Oh Lord, This Week Just Got Awkward (Part 1)

I went to work, got the emergency stuff done and then called out sick for the rest of the day. I felt like I was going to pass out on the keyboard. So much for my boss’s “don’t call out sick while I’m on vacation” edict, eh?
Dress rehearsal started tonight. I was looking forward to this week and now instead it was awkward as fuuuuuuuuuuuck. I said very little to Scott unless he said something to me, basically. Again, what the fuck would you say? Haven’t I gotten into trouble by talking to him too much now, apparently? Maybe I should just stop talking to him at all, except we’re still in a play for the next two weeks so that’s kinda not so doable.
This has just gone into worst case scenario territory here for me because when shit like this has gone down in the past, I’ve literally dropped out of social circles to avoid this kind of awkwardness, and now I’m considering dropping out of the theater crowd. I don’t want to, mind you, but I don’t even know how to deal with this.
I tried to be normal otherwise to other people, but it was very weird.
Quotes from rehearsal:
