Weekly Writing Prompt — Jamboree

As a reviewer for The Village Voice, I had to go to the music jamboree in Central Park last night. The crowd was vast, barely fitting within the stanchions placed around the field. I watched as people applauded in unison, caught up in the festivities, the music, and the mood.

But I’m an agoraphobic, you follow me? I can’t deal with large crowds. What is scintillating for others, would be a blunder for me. I automatically keep my distance, like the proverbial fly on the wall.

(Exactly 86 words)
