My horoscope today reads "your thoughts and opinions of will be seen by others as out of the ordinary-hold to your convictions." Well shit. Some days I'd like to be just like everyone else, really. Well, not REALLY.
But it would be much easier. I pretty much try to go with the flow unless it's absolutely necessary, but it seems like even floating down the daily river can set me apart. Yesterday I was "different" in water aerobics cause I wore shorts to the class. Not IN the class. But three people commented on the fact that I had shorts intead of sweats covering my suit.
"Why aren't you cold?"
What kind of dumbass question is THAT?
"Maybe because I'm fat."
"I'm cold, and I'm fat."
I resisted the impulse to say "Maybe because I'm young." I should get points for restraint, don't you think?
