Greetings and salutations, my friend. Welcome to this new venture in my writing “career.”
As we get to know each other more you will learn that I love to talk and love to write . . . poems, short stories
, e-mails, notes-to-self, grocery lists, messages in greeting cards
. Most of what I write is, in my own mind, brilliant . . . Pulitzer prize
winning. Others may disagree, but who cares! Give me a pen and an empty notebook and I am good to go.
I am a mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, employee, and arachnophobe
. I am loud-mouthed, short-tempered, short on patience, and just short.
My friends are my world. I have few close friends, but I hold those people very close to my heart and consider them to be family more than my own family in most instances. My best friend is a guy whose girlfriend is a complete fucking idiot who I want to punch in the face sometimes. She is his mistake though, so what’s a girl to do? Maybe his girlfriend is my lesson in patience.
I am a total sap. Romantic stories reduce me to tears at the drop of a hat. It’s actually quite pathetic. In all honesty though there is a baseball-themed beer commercial on t.v. that has the same effect on me. Crybaby, you may say. Nope. I am just overly moved by the emotion conveyed in a message. Alright, that’s bullshit. I am an overly sensitive crybaby. I always make sure to keep tissues close by.I am one who claims to seek calm and order in my life. A childhood of chaos and constant change have made me fear change and drama. Yet, somehow it finds me always. Maybe I subconsciously seek it out because that is the only way I know how to live. What do you think?I am a watcher (and judge) of people. I say that I try not to judge, but who am I kidding. You are lying to yourself if you say you never judge people. You know I am right. I do like to watch people though. Their actions and lack of actions say more about person than words ever will. I learn more about my friends by just watching the way they behave.
Now I am just rambling. I told you I love to talk.
We shall meet again soon, maybe with a specific topic in mind.
Until we meet again, my friend.
