Anyway, I'm glad that something (else) came up that scotched my planned
hiking/soaking trip this weekend (leaving from work tonight, returning
Wednesday evening)...so this didn't fester for another two days.
uncomfortable? been a long time since someone ELSE made me
uncomfortable...I do it to myself from time to time. Left me without
a response, or even at a loss for words, sure, but uncomfortable? as
opposed to angry or upset?
 most notable recent time was when I was watching a new young
ballerina doing Sugarplum Fairy...my favorite ballerina wandered in with
her newborn and watched for a while...and turned to me and asked "What
do you think." I like and respect Tina and gave her my honest opinion
"Does nothing for me". In the ensuing silence, I had enough time to
remember her telling me about one of her summer students who was offered
a contract with the ballet and connect it with her coming in for an
unknown dancer" "Oh" I had the sense to change the subject rather than
stuffing my foot in further by saying "She dances it well"
 Which Tina would have instantly understood to mean (correctly) that
she was a good mechanic, but lacking spark, emotion or interest.
 This spring Tina mentioned that Vanessa is looking for coaching in
these weak areas.
 This would help, but I still don't like her turns.
