I’m a leaper.
A leaper with an active imagination. A fantasy frog?
When I posted my Happy Birthday to Nicholas a day before his birthday, I shared it on my Facebook wall and a dear friend of mine, Brian, replied to my comment ‘Because I can never wait’ with “that is SO you”. It is. 🙂
I love that I have friends who know me that well, and it got me to thinking. Is that particular facet of mine a good thing?
It is now.
Probably not so much when I was still drinking. LOL
From piercing my nose, tattoos and marriages, I’ve jumped right in, feet first with abandon.
I do have a child like impatience – I can barely contain myself when I’ve found the perfect gift for someone. I still count down an upcoming event in ‘sleeps’. 3 more sleeps, 2 more sleeps, 1 more sleep – you get it.
Then there’s my over active imagination.
A guy makes appreciative eye contact with me and we’ve already broken up by the time he looks away. I’ve flashed through courting, our wedding and I’m fine tuning my break up speech to give the poor unsuspecting cashier/random stranger.
“It just would never have worked out” is probably not an appropriate response to ‘thank you for shopping with us.’
I crack myself up.
I love that I do those things now. I’m not as impulsive. I think things through – ask myself ‘what is the right thing to do here?’
I can’t turn it off though! My mind is ALWAYS running.
Probably this is a good thing for someone who loves to write. I try not to question it anymore – just temper it with common sense.
Oh, and shockingly, I’m writing this at the laundromat – and a Gin Blossoms song has just come on – don’t think for one minute after meeting Robin Wilson last year and getting a hug and a kiss he didn’t fall madly in love with me. I had to let him down easy – in my head. 😉 It just wouldn’t have worked out.

You make me laugh. You should get that laundromat to advertise on your blog. Maybe you should post fliers to have your fans stop by there on Sundays to meet the blogger and get her autograph… 😀
Lol. I know right?
I’d go to meet the Beautiful Blogger! 🙂
This has always been me too. It is a painful way to live, but I can’t help it. No matter what I did to control it, I’ve always acted out conversations with other people, only to not have them work out all like I wanted them too, or even more common to never happen at all. Arrrgghhh, frustrating.
You did the right thing … You got a blog. Pretty sure Poe had the same affliction, only he was chatting with his cousins in his head 😉
Yep complaining about all things on a blog is great therapy. If Poe had a blog he may never have published his poems.
Hmmm … Interesting thought. What if blogging is sucking future writers into oblivion? 😮
Nope just enhancing them. I am more excited about writing now that I blog. Right?
I’ll go with that theory. Phew! That was a close one!
Maybe ‘His’ fantasy is exactly the same as yours!! For the same reasons, he walks away…I do the thinking for both parties you see!! Second and third person thinking works well for me. LOL!!
