There’s a wrestling match going on inside my head and so far Rogue is losing to the opponent. Problem is I’m not sure who or what the opponent is. He remains nameless and faceless. I resolve to write a great post full of wit and wisdom and end up with this…this…rambling and fumbling of words. I fucking hate that.
In order to free up the creative process, let’s play a little game. I’ll say a word and the other me will write down the first thing that pops into my head. It’s easier when there is more than one ‘you’ inside your head. Yay for mental health! Ready, people? Let’s go!
String- This is stupid
Room- With a view! I win!
Desk- A Fucking mess
Lindsay Lohan- Also, a fucking mess
Pen- With which to write which I haven’t, thus the need for this idiotic exercise. Next.
Chair- Dumb chair. Fell over it this morning…oh. Sorry.
Dog- The cutest wittle doggie evah…ahem. Again, sorry.
Weight- Wait? Or WEIGHT! Like HOLY SHIT I WEIGH HOW MUCH? Or HOLY SHIT I HAVE TO WAIT HOW LONG?!! Which one? Both are evil.
Fruit- Owns a hair salon and totally denies he’s gay…oh! You mean FRUIT, like apples and oranges and stuff…again with the apples? Ugh.
Heat- Totally absent in this space and therefore I am FUCKING FREEZING!! Hello?!! Oh! I meant house. I’m home today…back to the words…
Keys- Ima gonna need a new set when they change the locks on the door…to my HOUSE of course, because that’s where I currently am. HOME. Yeah.
Florida- where I should be at the moment.
Book- Love them all, read them all, wrote a couple…awesome stuff.
Paper- Umm….white, blank lately, some have lines, trees died for them? What do you want from me?
Elvis- We went from paper to Elvis? Really? “Thank you, you’re beautiful”. All I got.
The lights are on but no one’s home- The story of my life…This is supposed to be ONE word.
Money- Apparently not something young adults take downtown so instead of YA being able to get home independently, she feels the need to call the mommy so she can meet her at a location only to have that location change when mommy gets there due to the absence of money and the YA’s ability to avail of the public transportation system therefore, after much yelling and throwing of cell phone in car, (which sadly now works intermittently at best) mommy dutifully drives all over fucking town (since the location of pick up changed twice after the first time) to rescue daughter and friend only to hear “thanks” and “well, if you had let me take the car this wouldn’t have happened”…. Good thing my phone is due for an upgrade….
Fuck off- See above. ‘nuff said.
Thank you for playing. See you next time on WORD ASSOCIATION-THE BEST GAME FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH.
Disclaimer Clause: It should be noted that no harming of any cars, horses, dogs, cats, wandering hobos, daughters or cell phones occurred in the above scenario. Swearing was kept to whispers and loud voices in my head…I think it was implied in the yell of “WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY? WHO GOES DOWNTOWN WITHOUT CASH?!! TELL ME! WHO DOES THAT?!” Ugh….

Pen- mightier than the sword, which we’re glad you don’t have, or the next word would be….
Incarceration- legal or medical – pick one
I should play this with the other me one day. I hope my other me is as entertaining as your other you.
I’m confident the two yous are waaay more entertaining than the two mes. One is always battling the other for the last cookie. Ugh.
You worry me sometimes. And then I read a post like this, and totally stop worrying at all.
Yes, no need to worry…just send cash. Lots of cash…and chocolate. And wine…is that too much? Ok…just the wine then, jeesh!
I look forward to seeing all these words combined to create a melidious flow in teh chapter of your memoir entitled “For Fucks Sake!!!”
How did you know the title to my memoir! Amazing, Guap.
I clearly need to start playing this game. My answer to everything will be ‘fuck’ or something close to it. No surprise, huh?
Yeah…not really. 🙂
