The Beat of My Drum

The other day a friend said to me "You're crazy.  That's one of the reasons I love you." 

I thought about this.

Do I want to be thought of as crazy?  Even if it makes me loveable?

Sure I do silly things.  I speak my mind too much.  Things pop out of my mouth before I can swallow the words.  I wear scarves when it's not very cold.  I don't mind being different and I don't really care too much what people think of me as long as they laugh at what I say.  Or scream.  That's okay too.  I'd rather elicit a strong reaction, than none at all.

But basically, I just don't want to disappear.  Which is easy to do when you're a mom.

So I came to the following conclusion with the help of my boyfriend - I'm not crazy, I just march to the beat of my own drummer on the other hand is out of his f*cking mind.


  1. I love your drummer. I'm a little crazy too, but hey at least I get noticed! I love how your mind works. Everytime I read what your mind has to say I have a bouncier bounce in my step that day, thanks!

  2. I like you and I'm not at all "crazy". I'm serious, cynical and have a sense of humor...maybe that's why I think you're funny!

  3. I love your blog!

  4. Another great post! I hear ya about the EBWW, I felt the same exact way...I knew I'd lose but...

  5. Sarah, I had a reading last night and this woman who I know said, "you are the craziest of them all" and KEPT REPEATING IT, at first, I have fun with it, but shut already. I actually don't think I'm crazy, but just me... not her. And then I realized it was coming from jealousy. Now,the intersting thing was my piece was hilarious, I know this because must laughter, which really feels good, but it was about how I make everything up. And how so many people (her) think what I write is actually true!!! So much for creative license. I actually find this hilarious. SO I keep it going... it's just my way... it's called writing OY Love your piece and the ball piece, I really laughed, can so relate...what have we gotten ourselves into!!!!!! xoxo
