  • I don't think it's reasonable to expect to be able to WANT to be around them, the best you can do is develop a strategy for tolerating the person when you have to be around them, like thinking about how this would make a great scene in your novel someday.

  • I play nice, smile & try to keep my distance. Keep it superficial.
