I think I’ve become a “regular person” — you know, just a typical suburban mom whose personality doesn’t really stand out to most people?
No offense to typical suburban moms everywhere (including myself) — in fact, this note is for you. All of you. All of us. I think everyone has a fun, silly, fabulous personality within them somewhere that real life just sucks right out of you sometimes. I swear, I do have a really fun, adventurous, wacky person somewhere inside me who laughs a lot and doesn’t care what other people think. But ever since college graduation (way too many moons ago), I’ve been on a slow path toward complete boringness. (I’m going to just go ahead with that word even though “spell check” says it doesn’t exist.)
Well, no more!
Okay, that probably isn’t realistic. I’m sure I will still be boring tomorrow, but at least I’m aware of my problem, right? As my old roommate Trish used to say, “Now ya know. And knowing is half the battle.”
So with that, I dedicate this “Flight of the Conchords” clip to all of you out there who have that crazy sweater in your closet that you love but never have the guts to wear. To all of you who have always thought you should do something different with your hair, or whatever it is that you want to do or be but you’re too afraid of what the “regular” neighbors might think.
“Wear the eye patch!”
So tell me, ladies. What part of you are you hiding? Who or what are you hiding behind? Comment as “anonymous” if you have to, but I really want to know. Dig deep and find something about yourself that you used to love to do/wear/say/be/whatever, and share with us what that is.
Can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
