This is what happens when you have superpowers and just the right amount of social anxiety.
What's something awkward that you remember doing recently?
A few days ago, the owner of this cafe I usually go to asked me how Yumi was doing. (I don't know a Yumi, but he knows that we share the same mutual friend, so he assumed we know each other too.) The cafe owner is super good-looking, and whenever we talk, I get incredibly shy, and my words just sort of spill out like teenage girl word vomit.
Me: "Yumi? Oh, uh, I don't know that guy."
Cafe Owner: "Yumi's a girl."
Me: "Oh." [Insert the sound of crickets chirping here.]
The next day, I actually ended up meeting Yumi for the first time. We took a selfie together, and she shared it on her Instagram, and the cafe owner was one of the first people to like it with a big "Oh, hey! It's Dani!" (Note: I know that this shouldn't have made me feel that much more shy, but it did. Because I'm awkward. The end.)
