tribe

When bb first visited England for a week, prior to accepting his job here, he called me and said, “I think I found your tribe…”

The Guardian today would seem to confirm this:

“Kate Fox, director of the Social Issues Research Centre in Oxford…concluded that we [British people] are all suffering from a “congenital sociability disorder’, a disease whose symptoms are akin to a kind of autism combined with agoraphobia.”

Yup. That about sums it up.

bb pointed out that they were not only “uptight” like me but also friendly, funny, and clever.

He does put a nice spin on things.

We’ll see soon enough.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
