Let's be real.
I know which characteristics others admire in me. But I also recognize my faults. I'm a smartass. I love laughter more than anything in the world. I don't settle for mediocrity. And I understand I'm not everyone's dream girl. I shop too much. I curse more than my mother approves. Correct EVERYONE'S grammar. I argue for fun. I come up with innocent suggestions for a person's behavior when someone is speaking negatively of them. I love listening to gossip...But I never care to repeat it. It's weird. I cry at the mere thought of how deeply I love my family. I cry thinking of other people's pain. I over analyze the actions of EVERYONE...Because I always want to know why people do what they do. The human psyche intrigues me. I wear high heels more often than any girl should. I make off-the-wall comments at inopportune times. I dance like I'm the ONLY person on the floor. My karaoke voice... It sets off car alarms and causes riots in the streets. I like wine. I love beer. And I have had more incidental injuries than a drunk out-of-work acrobat. More close-calls, than a 9-1-1 dispatcher. I don't ask personal questions. And I'm probably the least abrasive person you'll meet. If I witness a confrontation, I run away...Because I've always been the girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. I always try to find the humor in a serious or traumatic situation...Which is often less than appreciated. I question the lack of manners amongst the greater population---Please and thank you, it's a pleasure to meet you----And wonder what ever happened to a man offering his seat for a lady nearby. Witnessing a random act of kindness...Absolutely melts my heart. Sadly, it's rare.
Let's clear this up...I thought it was, "Let's play it by year." And, "It's a doggy dog world." In my defense, the first one TOTALLY made sense. I have terrible hearing.
Everyone contradicts their own thoughts and beliefs. Everyone makes mistakes. It's only about first impressions to a certain extent. You know what you like, you know what you don't. It's about giving someone a chance, when you deem them worthy. You can find someone attractive. It doesn't mean you'll be attracted TO them. Why people don't understand this, I'm uncertain.
The end. Or the beginning.
