~Hi, I’m Sherry, and I’m the best third wheel in the world.~
When I first saw the Youtube video with this opening line, I laughed and shared it on Twitter. How witty I thought. How clever.
And then I paused (as I’ve trained myself to do) and realized that I actually identified with the main character.
I specialize in being the third wheel. I prefer being the third wheel. It gives me flexibility and autonomy. It provides a buffer.
Being just slightly disengaged allows time for me to take photos, post to social media, manage my energy and think about what’s next. Yeah, I know, it’s not the best of habits but it makes me happy. So, is it really so wrong?
While others only see the draw-backs of being singled out, I recognize the value of a truly kick-ass third wheel and I rock at it!!
I don’t just break tension. I remove it!!
Enjoy the video.
