Introvert's Nightmare

I am at my wife's college reunion, basically 2 days of continuous cocktail party conversation with people I do not know and who are here mainly to see long-lost friends rather than meet anyone new.  Not my best milieu.

    Like a beginning ballroom dance class, half the people attending are there under duress. If you know one of your bride's friends' spouses, you two should have studied the yearbook and approached people who you could identify from the mugshots as if you remember them.
