Below are five things I am not. This is not a woe is me list, just the truth about myself as I see it.
No matter how much I wish it, I never have a snappy comeback, or witty remark to add. I can't write tongue in cheek posts or add a great comic touch to my writings. I can remember in junior high school being able to make the other kids laugh. I was even invited on a group date once, with my date's express purpose, that I be the evening's entertainment. That was a big fail, as I suppose stage fright reared its ugly head. Since then, I've not been so entertaining. Me witty, nah.
Randy Newman wrote that "short people got no reason to live." I wouldn't go that far, but it really is a handicap being only 5'. And as I grow older, I will shrink as all old folks do. Chairs are seldom comfortable for my short legs, counters are often higher than I would like and reaching any higher than the first shelf of the kitchen cabinet is a joke. I even need a step stool to climb into my own bed.
I don't hold grudges. I forgive easily. I won't say I am not uncomfortable in the presence of someone who has done me wrong, but I don't snub them, or wish them ill. I may avoid that person if possible, but I just seem to be able to move on most of the time.
I'm a scaredy cat. Scared of heights, going into places I'm not familiar with, performing in front of someone, dying, mice and snakes. I'm sure I could come up with lots of other things for the scaredy cat list. Some of them are really rediculous, but I just can't help it.
Bleh. No matter how long I work out, I still have to make myself go to the gym. I wish I had enough energy to be constantly into something and busy. Fail. I'm basically lazy. I keep trying to gain energy though, so I'm not giving up yet.
Tune in next week for another installment of What Not Wednesday....
