Some Days I Wish I Were Crazy

Wish I were? Wish I was? Hunh. Grammar was never my strong suit. I have always left participles dangling every which place and if you asked me to name the parts of a sentence I would probably get lost somewhere after 'verb'.

Anyway.

I have been thinking lately how fun it would be to be gloriously nutty. I don't know, wear halloween costumes for every day clothing and talk to folks no one else can see. I don't want to be a scary crazy person, or a boring crazy person. I want to be the kind of nutcase who missed the normalcy boat by just a smidgen, and is all the loopier for it.

Unfortunately, I am just too lazy. It is so much WORK to look and act like a nutjob! I supposed I am destined to be just another average working mom....

You mean wearing Halloween costumes everyday ISN'T normal?? Is that why people at Walmart look at me funny??

I know what you mean about it being too much work to act crazy. But looking that way... that's easy!!

Ooh! Have you ever hidden inside a store's clothing racks and waited for an unsuspecting customer to come by, then yelled "Pick me! Pick me!" at the top of your lungs??

Let me just say that I've made this comment before myself. As a person with Asperger's Syndrome -- high functioning autism -- I've sometimes thought I would be better off if I didn't possess the intellectual capacity to understand my idiosyncrasies.

But look at the flip side. If you were truly nutty, you wouldn't love nor enjoy your Sprouts as you do now. I'm guessing you wouldn't want to trade that capacity for the world.
