“Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain’t no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my hair.”—
OH. MY. GOSH. Losing stuff makes me go absolutely, certifiably CRAZY.
Even when it isn’t really important stuff, like two weeks ago when I couldn’t find the new bottle of clear nail polish that I wanted to use: instead of just NOT paint my nails, or paint them a different color, I freaked out and spent an hour tearing apart my rooms and closets looking for it. I could not focus on anything else until I found it.
Tonight my phone apparently fell out of my pocket when I was leaving class, because when I got home I couldn’t find it. It’s a piece of crap phone, but I had to find it. I called it repeatedly until finally someone answered it. Apparently she found it all the way down the street from the building my class had been in.
Anyways, the story has a happy ending, but I just went through roughly thirty-five minutes of high-adrenaline crazy person hell.
“One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced each other,
Drew their swords, and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
Came and killed those two dead boys.
If you don’t believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man, because he saw it too.”—
Ohhhhh my gosh, that poem is in that movie that I do not ever ever talk about because it made me cry. I prayed and cried through most of that movie. I will never ever go see a scary movie in theatre again. My friend has been trying to bully me into seeing Paranormal Activity, but I’ve told him repeatedly: HECK to the NO!
My mom has started doing some part-time nanny-ing, and on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday she takes care of this little girl whose mom commutes a couple of hours away. She’s a precious little girl, sings, plays piano, has a turtle, a bunny, and a poodle named Fifi. Last week she told my mom about the Halloween costume she is going to wear (she’s going to be a fairy) and the cheerleader costume she got for her dog. Today she showed my mom the costumes: the fairy costume is adorable; the dog costume has giant Playboy logo on it. Mom couldn’t say anything or laugh though, because clearly the parents haven’t noticed yet (they’re very conservative), and she didn’t want to be the one to have to explain Playboy to ten year old.
