In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

About Being Crazy

After a party, a friend was telling me how his new girlfriend thought I was crazy. I laughed; he became serious, and stated: "No; not funny; know; insane"

I thought about it. At first, I was a little worried. Were there any repercussions if someone considers you insane? Since, my behavior was well within what I considered "normal", I wondered what inspired the perception. Was it something I said? What did I do? Is she the only person that feels this way? 

So, after ten minutes of introspection, I came to the conclusion my friend was pulling my leg, or that it was a little nice to be considered crazy. It keeps people on edge and they generally won't make the mistake of double-crossing a crazy person.


  1. Do you know how crazy that sounds???

  2. One thing I have learned in life is that if people think you are a little bit crazy - not funny crazy, but seriously, white-coat-rubber-room crazy - they tend to treat you with more respect.

  3. There's a considerable social advantage to seeming unpredictable and possibly even scary.

  4. As Jimmy Buffett says, "If we weren't all crazy we'd all go insane."

    I definitely would rather be considered a little crazy than normal; I agree with Roy and CGHill.
