I tend to be perceived as a random person. For example, I will be with a group of people who are talking about the weather. Seemingly out of nowhere I will blurt out “And there’s a sale going on at Macy’s.” I say out of nowhere but it really isn’t. It’s from my mind, which is actually a very orderly and rational place. Let me explain. While they were discussing the weather, I was thinking about whether I had my umbrella with me because it was supposed to rain. I was imagining my bag and looking for my umbrella in there. Then I thought, well if it’s not in there, I can always run over to Macy’s and get one – you can never have too many umbrellas. Which reminded me that there was a one day sale going on at Macy’s. Which I then blurted out. See? It makes perfect sense when you hear the full story. Alas, they did not hear the full story and thought that I was random. It all depends on your perspective.
Anyway, it’s this sort of behavior that has earned me the title Queen of Random in our house. My husband says I’m the kind of person that would call him on the phone and say “That’s what he said.” And he will say “Who? What are you talking about?” In other words, the Queen of Random.
