Do you ever have those moments where your thoughts go into overdrive? Not because you have a lot on your mind or you are stressed or under pressure. Just random thoughts. Like a Duracell bunny on speed on a 100mph motorbike whizzing around your mind thinking about everything and anything. So me and hubbie are waking around central London and I asked him what he was thinking. “Nothing” he replies. Nothing! So I explain to him exactly what I’m thinking. A running commentary of my thoughts if you will for just a few moments as we walk down the busy London street through the lunchtime rush on a weekday. And as Run DMC would say, now it goes a lil something like this…..
“Oooh I love that woman’s outfit, she’s bang on trend but she doesn’t look like she’s tried too hard, what the….what is that girl wearing! Why is everyone is such a rush?! How do people relax here!? Oooh look at those boulders,that’s a nice sculpture. Wooooow that building looks pretty impressive, I love the way the architecture differs so much down here. Oh god a homeless man, shall I talk to him? Why is he homeless? When did he last eat? Is he really homeless? Why is he holding a saying saying he had no food? Do the coffee shops here not have those honorary sandwiches and coffees that people have paid for? Why isn’t he getting one of those? Why are the pavements changing so much? They’re made of so many different things it’s disorientating.
Luckily this insight did not prompt hubbie to run scared in the other direction and we are still happily married. It has left me questioning however if my thoughts and mind are somewhat unique or if there are other perfectly sane individuals out there with the same over active thoughts. Keeping them silently entertained each day.
