let me help you with those dishes
The definition of clingy is "to hold fast or to adhere to something." You know, like a dryer sheet, which if left in the dryer for too long will adhere to your clothing. Or when it's cold outside and you cling to your friend as you both rush to the car for sanctuary.
There is another form of clingy that I am now all too aware of. Like when a friend clings or latches on to you for attention, emotional support, or stimulation. These are friends who have lacked emotional or physical comfort for sometime and when finally faced with that which they've missed they become... yes, you guessed it - clingy.
Now, I do not want to over dramatize the situation at hand, but I am feeling a bit claustrophobic at the moment because of a particularly clingy friend. "Claustrophobic" refers to an abnormal tendency to feel terror in closed spaces. I haven't quite reached terror levels yet or had prolonged moments of horror or panic. I have, however, experienced prolonged moments of "space invasion" - when the oh so important space boundaries around my person are invaded over long periods of time.
