Honestly, lately, not super well. At my office, we went out for lunch for all the July birthdays. And it was just a crowd of us, and people were wearing their fancy smart watches and talking casually about consumption, and the scene from Terminator 2 with Sarah Conner in the mental facility came to mind, where she says:

"You think you're safe and alive? You're already dead! Everybody! Him, you, you're dead already! This whole place! Everything you see is gone!"

I forced myself to think of my upcoming camping trip and about what I needed for the rocket stove. I'm sure I just looked socially awkward.
