There are some things about me that shock people. Mostly it’s the things that I say. I’ll give you an example. The other day I was in a conversation with a couple of people and my friend said to me “you’re always thinking.” This is what I replied……”some would say that I think too much. You’d think that I wouldn’t think as much after I blew out a part of my brain but I think that I think more now.” One of the people in this conversation was kinda mortified that I said I blew out a part of my brain. The other person in this conversation is quite used to me saying things like that. It made me realize that saying stuff like that scares the normals of the world. After what I’ve been through there really isn’t anything that could shock me and I wouldn’t hesitate to say something like that to you guys but I guess if you haven’t experienced this yourself or with a close loved one that kind of humor freaks some people out. So I guess I maybe should start watching what I say to certain people. Or not.
