Another day in Paradise

Once there was a socially interested individual who was regularly invited to gatherings, if for no other reason, than to "light up the room", with her charming verse, radiant smile, and comically oriented schtick...

Years went by like this, until one day the place where she spent most of her life, her work, decided to lay everyone off, because they just didn't think it was worth the effort to try to work things out...

Most all of these professional people went on to other positions and lives that were seemingly seamless in nature, at least it appeared that way to the "social one".

As time went by, and the "social one" could not find work, she became more and more reclusive, and "NO, I don't think so, but thanks", became a weekly reply to the many friends that still requested her presence..Ah what good friends are these that indulge me whilst I waste away for the present, as each day merges effortlessly into tomorrow, and I spend yet, "Another day in Paradise"
