I can't believe I'm putting this on my blog
I feel like when you move somewhere with someone--spouse, kid, roommate, whatever--there is still at least one person around who knows all about you. Moving alone is a little different, and lately it has been bothering me a little bit that no one here really knows me that well ... you know, like, REALLY really. I mean, I have friends, I hang out with people, but there isn't anyone here who knew me this time last year, and it's WEIRD. It kind of wears me out sometimes, to be honest--I feel like I am constantly explaining myself, the way that I am and the way that I think about things because people don't know it yet. Only I don't always do it very well because I am a little bit of a hard person to get to know anyway. I'm pretty friendly and chatty so sometimes it takes people awhile to realize that, but I don't know, that's just how I am.
Which is why it just warms my soul, from the hair on my head right down to my tippy toes, when I talk to someone who DOES know me and all my quirks. When someone can send me this video, this absolutely ridiculous, nonsensical, pointless video and just KNOW it will make me laugh for exact reasons unknown to either of us.
Like, WHAT is this video? Why would anyone MAKE it, let alone WATCH it, let alone SEND it to another person? But my friend did, and it made me laugh, and I watched it again like 10 times while we were talking. ("Pervert," he said. HA.) It's that look the guy gets at the 20-second mark, it just cracks me up.
So there you go. Smoking, singing shower guy. Happy Monday, everyone!
