Usually when picking a headline for a post/article/book, what have you, it usually gives the reader an idea of what it’s about… BUT this vague title I’ve chosen today, well, let’s just say it’s a tough one to figure out as it can cover a lot of topics/ground and leave you wondering hmmm… I’m intrigued to find out what this woman has written. Muah haha! Curiosity…
Well, this post is about observing the environment and people around us to NOT place judgment, but rather to be amused at such interesting, entertaining, funny, weird, wacky ways of doing things… sit back, sip your fantastic tasting coffee, tea, or mimosa and enjoy.
Are You The Type Of Person To Start Too Many Projects At One Time? Bet You Know Someone Who Is… I DO!
So recently I have had to sell my home and have my munchkins and I bombard my folks house (move out-of-the-way, we’re moving in!) Well, I have been helping my folks fix their house here and there and have come to the realization that my mother likes to start many projects all at once, and it feels like a crazy house with half done projects as I try to herd her in like some kind of cattle telling her ‘NO! good woman, Mom… let’s finish the kitchen cabinets first then move on to paint the entry, living room, and let’s just skip knocking down that wall in the den upstairs altogether… the wall is fine! So I’m scraping sanding, and painting the kitchen cabinets (when my mother tries to sneak pass me with a paint brush and paint can in her hands) What are you doing mom? are you starting another project that will be left half done for months? She chuckles a little then says no in a very non-convincing way… About five minutes later she walks into the kitchen to announce ‘I think that paint color looks good in the entry way, come check it out.’ Needless to say, I give her the look! Yes it’ll look great once it’s all panted (it is STILL unfinished people! along with a few other projects.) My mom is hilarious! I find her amusing when she has so many ideas and she tries to get them all done in a day or two… Do you know anyone like that? Are you a tornado creating project starter that wants to fix everything but instead makes the house look like a mess, a demolition, a natural disaster? The House is always under construction!
Where Did I Park My Car Again?!
Do you ever notice when people walk out of a store and you happen to look at that perfect time they make the ‘oh crap, this is going to take a while to find my car’ face? I feel bad for those people, I really do, but at the same time it’s almost as good as watching a movie (where’s the popcorn?) Some people try to play it cool, you’re not fooling me… just laugh! (I’m not even going to lie, it’s happened to me once or twice… I just have to laugh at myself, because I know I look like a fool, weaving in and out of the lanes and cars like damn it Eloise, you should’ve parked where you always do then this wouldn’t happen!) Well, just know if I see you lost in the parking lot with the confused expression, pressing that car remote hoping to hear it as well as see the flashing lights, please know I’m not laughing AT you, I’m laughing WITH you! (we’ve all been there!)
Go Ahead, Just Stand There… You Don’t Need To Act Like You’re Doing Something All The Time!
You’re outside, dazing, PEOPLE WATCHING, and you’ve noticed everyone is preoccupied with some kind of gadget, waiting for their kids, friends, a bus, whatever… You wonder what happened to staring off into space just standing there and being one with your thoughts or maybe saying hello and a short conversation with the people around you? If you watch long enough, you’ll begin to see people get fidgety, anxious, and have to pull out their phone, tablet, fancy watch to feel like they’re doing something at that moment in time. It’s okay people, go ahead and just stand there in serenity.
Too Funny to pass up putting this meme here! (made me laugh and therefore it became part of this post!)
Well readers, I know this post is a weird one, hope it’s entertaining and light-hearted… My last awesome post was pretty deep and heavy, so I had to switch it up a little. (check out my last post ‘Have I told you lately how much you mean to me’ by clicking here!) It’s a good one!
Feel free to let the TwinCitiesView Community know of any entertaining realizations you have had… it’s fun to share! Stay alert and have fun observing the world and others around you!
Take care readers!
