Just because I haven't written in this blog for over a year doesn't mean I haven't thought about it.
I actually think about it almost weekly, every time I have a question I'd like to ask you guys, my internet friends. So for the grand re-opening of this blog, I'd like to start with a Q&A. But not your grandmother's Q&A... Because I'll be the one asking the questions. And you'll be the ones providing answers :) Today I have only one question:
The other day at a car dealership (we were just browsing), after saying our goodbyes to the dealer who helped us, Jon and the dealer shook hands. I reached out my hand to shake goodbye as well, and there was a split second of pause before the dealer tried to seamlessly also shake my hand, as if he had been going to do that all along.
I know in the old fashioned ways that women don't shake hands. We stand a half-step behind the man and smile sweetly and nod goodbye and let the men do the manly business of shaking hands.
But in today's world, half the time the guy reaches out to shake my hand and half the time he doesn't. When he doesn't reach out until I do, I feel a bit silly and awkward and even a little embarrassed, as if he's only shaking my hand to humor me.
What do you all do?
