I’m one of those people who, when bored, plays around with the laptop camera. I make faces, do funny poses, make crazy videos and that sort of junk. I never post any of it anywhere and the only time anyone sees any of it is by accident. So yes, I am mad but I like keeping my madness a secret – from me even.
I’ve always wanted to make crazy vids, like the awesome, funny and weird ones you see on YouTube but I’ve never had the guts to do one. I fear someone will find it and instead of laughing with me, they’ll laugh at me. Anyhow, I’m slowly weening myself off of this parasitic thought and I’ve embarked on taking pictures, making videos and audio recordings of the wacky stuff that more than occasionally pops into my mind.
My state of crazy is so bad, I’ve infected my kid with it. When we’re together, playing and laughing together – as an outsider looking in – you’d be convinced that common sense and any form of adult and socially acceptable behaviour was never part of my up-bringing.
In all honesty, I don’t mind that one bit. I quite enjoy hearing the voices in my head speak.They have the most amazing insights and conversations between them always amuse me. I’m not sure if this is really nutty or not but, they’re either toddlers, old or alien. (And I’m convinced that they all may be a combination of alien and something else. An angel or demon maybe… Who knows? Who cares?) To date, I can speak of four very distinct and loud characters in my head. I don’t know their names though, they’ve refused to tell me who they are.. I think they’re afraid of getting figured out – no one likes being profiled successfully. (At least, I know I don’t.)
I would like to share more detail about their traits and stuff. But right now, they’ve all gone silent… They truly are a mystery. I hope they reveal themselves to me soon. Their story is itching to come out. And I suspect with it, my career as an author of fiction will have found life.
Happy Wednesday Fam 😉
Keep the faith and crazy alive.
