A circular ramble.
I'll be in a crowd of people or just one-to-one and something will come up - a topic, a street sign, a something. I will think, "Thought," related to said something. Now to me, that "Thought" is something really mundane, the thing that everyone is thinking. When I say the thought out loud, though, it turns out that no one was thinking it and aren't I hysterically funny for thinking of it myself. Sometimes, of course, everyone was thinking it. My problem (though I'm using the term loosely), is that I usually can't tell how people are going to react ahead of time. Most of the time, I'm trying to be funny, but some of the time I really am astonished that people don't see the world the way I do.
However. If you were to ask me if I see the world differently than other people (or is that from other people? - grammar police, please help), I would not hesitate to say yes. You know, Jock once compared me to Phoebe, on Friends and, as upset as I got, I still had to admit that he had a point. My brain walks along a happy ways, thinking three thoughts at a time (at least), and they intersect at unexpected points. In addition, I think it's possible that my brain works on Chaos Theory. The Chaos Theory is that one act in one place can have dramatic impact half a world away. The classic example is the "Butterfly Effect*," where a butterfly can flap it's wings in China and create a hurricane in Florida. I longer technical term is "sensitive dependence on initial conditions." So part of my brain is talking to a friend and another part of my brain is looking around the room and sees a library book on the shelf, and it's actually an accomplishment for me not to blurt out - apropos of seemingly nothing - that I have a library book overdue at our fabulous New York Public Library (of which I'm not supposed to be a member because I don't live in Manhattan or Brooklyn).
Actually, that example doesn't prove either of my points, but it does make a nice third point so I think I'll leave it in. I can't think of any good examples for the other two points. I'm sure they'll come to me at some point, at which time, I will probably share them out loud with whomever I am talked to at the time.
Well, lunch is up and I am out of time. In actual news, I had the last of my PT sessions last week. My shoulder isn't all better, but it is good enough that I can finish the work on my own. As to whether I will or not is another issue.
*The movie "Butterfly Effect," with Ashton Kutcher wasn't that great, but I enjoyed it a lot and I think it gives a great basic idea of how one action can effect a whole bunch of different actions.
