stranger than fiction

PhotobucketHave I mentioned lately that I live kind of a crazy life?  Sometimes it’s completely bizarre; other times it’s just a little wacky.  But, seriously, things happen to me that, if I put them in a book, I’d get a zillion snotty reader letters telling me, “That would never happen!”

Kind of like this:

One day last week, a friend calls me…

She: “Do you hear helicopters flying around?”

Me: “Yeah, actually. They’ve been flying over for an hour or two now.”

She: “They’re looking for a mentally unstable man who’s running around town.”

Me: “Really? What kind of mentally unstable man? Do I need to lock my doors & windows, maybe load the gun?”

She: “I don’t know, but if he’s naked & hot, send him my way!”


Okay, so I guess you can tell why she’s my friend.  The question, of course, is:  Did I rub off on her or did she rub off on me?  Maybe we simply gravitated to each other because we’re so much alike. :elvis

The helicopter fly-overs did eventually stop, by the way.  Apparently the “mentally unstable man” was really an irate boyfriend off on a tear, & the cops finally nabbed him.

Still no word on whether he was hot, though.  Or naked.  As the same friend said later, though:  “Around here, my guess would be not.” :uhoh

    People like us just seem to gravitate to one another. Not many know of that side of my personality, but those who do understand and urge me on when it comes out.
