My Weird Mind
Have you ever thought of something once while doing something and then, ever after, had that same thought while doing that same thing? I’ll explain. When I was in Alabama earlier this summer, I was putting on some concealer (shocking, I know) and I had this crazy thought that I was putting on war paint, you know, like an Native American, for example. I don’t know why I thought that. So now, whenever I put on concealer, I feel like I’m putting on my war paint again. Who knows why minds work this way? Maybe it’s like an earworm song. Sometimes if I have one of those stuck in my head and I make myself sing it aloud it stops repeating in my head. So what’s the solution here? I know, next time I’m putting on concealer I’ll just let out a war whoop or two. Maybe that’ll take care of it.

I think that my sanity is slipping.

  1. I’ve had the war paint thought before too. But only every now and then. I wear concealer all the time though because I don’t have your great skin, so it is just part of my routine and I don’t usually think about what I’m doing. I also think every now and then that it is like football players putting those black stripes under their eyes. The things we do for beauty!

  2. I have the memory thing happen when I:

    -shave my legs
    -tweeze my eyebrows
    -dry my hair

    All hair-related. Why am I so bizarre, I think?

    There are specific people that come to mind for each of those things, and I can’t figure out why, because the girl I think of when I shave my legs was from back in high school. I think of a former co-worker when I tweeze.

    But the best one is when I dry my hair… I think of when I was in the hospital with our 1st newborn. My mom said her head turned toward me while I was drying my hair, then it occurred to me that it made sense because I dried my hair every morning before work while I was pregnant.

    I hung up a new shower curtain that I found over at Goodwill recently… I now see that it looks very like your stripey side bar. So now I’m trying to decide which colors to highlight through repainting the bathroom.
