Tiffany, who has known me since high school, knows that I am not a shy person, but I did feel rather awkward at Tuesday night’s Fun-D-Raiser for St. Louis sixth ward alderwoman, Kacie Starr-Triplett. Everyone was nice. I actually knew a few people there besides my friend, her hubby and my sister who came with me. I felt amazingly adorable in my outfit, so confidence wasn’t the problem. It was just so hard to talk to people when you can’t hear them. The band was awesome, but loud, making all my conversations sound like the teacher from Charlie Brown.
