|"I say, 'Self. Now self.'" by Jesse|
Self, you need to hear this.
You have made some incredible friends, have a roof over your head. Your boy, he is doing good, says great even. It all seems to be working one way or another. Who knew you weren't turning the world?
You're funny, self, which is good because it is fun to laugh.
Today I am grateful for my funny friends who love to laugh and do so frequently.
They make life so much easier.
I am going to add something here before asking my friend if I can. If she calls or emails me today and says/writes, Yo, crazy. Take my very personal self talk off of the internet. Remove.
Then I will remove it. But. This is good and this is why I love her and if there was a reason I believe I'm not turning this world it is because this writer's group just simply happened, fell in my lap, was not even in my vision. Then it was there.
Seriously. I bow to her genius.
The following is written by my friend.
A Conversation of Self
1.Well, they’re gone.
2.Gosh, the house seems so empty.
1.I know, right?
2.Do you think they enjoyed it? I mean, should I have left the house dirty…you know, not stayed up until midnight cleaning it?
1.Sure, if you wanted them to trip over toys and get grit on their feet.
2.Yeah, Shea did take her shoes off…
1.Probably still got grit on her feet.
2.Do you think she minded?
1.Hey, who stacked the dishes in the sink
2.Shea – Gosh, when did she take the scraps out? Freaky – Do you think she thinks I’m OCD
2.Maybe I made them uncomfortable…clean house, weird tendencies, ya know I am perfectly capable of accepting people
1.Give it a rest—it’s who you are
2.K…what about the food—gosh, maybe I should have cooked something else…they probably hated it…I don’t know if it even tasted good…the chicken was kind of dry
1it wasn’t at 5:30…
2you’re right….whose fault was that anyway
2yeah…I think I’ll drink the rest of this coffee…sit on the couch, start this book…oh, gosh, we forgot to get that picture of tempa…and we didn’t help her with her computer! I feel so awful…I’m the worst friend…
1yeah…what else did she have in her hand when she left…
2hmmmm….don’t know…gosh, I should have asked her….what was that…hate we didn’t get the picture…should have been a group picture…I’d like to have one on my bedside table….
1yeah, that’d be great, then you could think about them even more…
2hey, didn’t Tempa say she walked everyday…we could do that…I mean, exercise…you know the walking writer’s group…then we could see each other EVERY week
1you mean, another group…yeah, but what if Shea has to “go”…
2well,I probably will have to go,too…no coffee and fried eggs…maybe we’ll do it in the afternoon
1yeah, probably better for Amanda…
2gosh, do you think she has to “go”…she didn’t say anything about it…oh, gosh, neither did Tempa, maybe they don’t “go”
1Pretty sure they do---I meant probably better for Amanda in the afternoon
2oh – yeah – okay, I’ll mention it to them
1they’ll hate it
