If you are anything like me, you have lots of random thoughts going on in your brain at any given time. Sometimes my brain is a scary place, I know it scares Karol, I am pretty sure it scares the NewYorRican, and I know it sure as hell scares me!! I sometimes wonder if everyone else’s brain is as random as mine, so sometimes I share my thoughts with others so I can see if they think the way I do.
Just the other day I walked over to the NewYorRican’s house, and was thinking on the way there, (I mean really, there was nothing else to do but think as I walked) …well, I could talk to myself out loud, but then I am just solidifying my less than stellar grip on normalcy to anyone walking or driving by. If I want to talk to myself out loud I need to go to someone else’s neighborhood, so people who see me will think, “That chick is crazy as shit, I sure am glad she doesn’t live in my neighborhood”.
Ok, so I am walking over to the NewYorRican’s house and thinking. So to my mind my thought processes makes sense, but I am sometimes unsure so when I get to her house, I’m all, “Hey I am going to tell you what I was thinking on the walk over here. Tell me if it seems normal to you.” She’s all, “Sure girl”, giving me confidence that as my bestie she will be nonjudgmental……..
So I start telling her my thoughts and how one thought worked it’s way to the next. It seemed like a perfectly plausible chain of thoughts to me, but I watched her face change from open and listening, to confused, to just plain horrified….(so much for besties who hide the truth for the benefit of their friend……sigh…..)
When I was done telling her my thoughts, her face looked something like the picture above.
Just imagine the face in the picture with long dark brown hair, a beautiful caramel Latina skin tone, and voila…Janet Leigh becomes The NewYorRican.
So here are the thoughts I had exactly as I thought them:
“It is a pretty day outside, I really like how the leaves look. It wasn’t this pretty last year, it was too warm. Oh my gosh, the office at work today was so warm. I was hot and sweaty, gross. I wonder if I was hot and sweaty because I haven’t taken my Mensosense in a few days? Oh gosh, I think I am almost out of Mensosense, I better get the Vitamin Shoppe to get some more. Oh, maybe I can go there tomorrow when I see that patient at the Virginia Beach Office. Oh and I really need to stop at BJ’s. The boys don’t have any snacks and I should get them some. You know, that reminds me that I need to ask the boys if that necklace I found on the floor in the hall belongs to any of them. Gosh, you know, I haven’t called the jewelry store to check to see if my jewelry has come back from the repair shop yet. Maybe I can stop there on my way back from Virginia Beach tomorrow when I see that patient and get the boys some snacks. You know the boys really need to clean their rooms tonight when they get home from school. Oh yeah tonight is Monday, Karol won’t be home tonight, she has class. What am I going to make for dinner? I better check that when I get back from having coffee with The NewYorRican. I wonder what she is making for dinner. Did I remember to tell her about that thing that happened last week? Gosh it sure is a pretty day out today.”
And then boom, I have arrived at her front door. Please tell me I am not the only one whose brain works like that.
