Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?
I've been ignoring it for awhile. It seems that some lovely, albeit confused people think that I am a Thinking Blogger. I have let them know that I am a Drinking Blogger. It's an easy mistake to make. Clearly, they are Drinking Bloggers too.
I have tried not to let this, as well as the other lovely nominations for a variety of other blog awards (none of which have to do with my outstanding shoes) get to my head. At first I was confused by the whole Thinking Blogger thing, but now, it seems so obvious. Of course I'm a Thinking Blogger. Thanks for noticing.
I think a lot. I would venture to say that I am almost always thinking. If I am not thinking, I am thinking about thinking. Or I have passed out from thinking.
I think socially. I like to think with my friends. We have several preferred places to think. I'm very open minded when it comes to thinking. While I have stuff that I prefer to think, I will think just about anything. Sometimes, this works out well for me and I discover new things that I like to think. Sometimes, I think something that makes me sick and I swear that if G*d will let me live through the night, I will never think that much again.
I don't try to hide how much I've been thinking and I don't lie about my thinking habits. I admit that I think alone. Thinking is part of my blogging process. I sit down at my computer and I have a good think. Then I have another. Then, I write. I also smoke when I think. I try not to smoke in the house, so I have to stop writing and go outside. Sometimes, I think while I'm out there. My neighbors know how much I think but, they are polite and don't mention it to me.
I have some rules about my thinking. I don't think in the morning, unless I was up late thinking the night before. Usually, I don't think before noon, but I've heard that it is the cure for those kind of situations. Also, I don't think and drive. I am a naturally bad driver, I don't need to add thinking to the mix.
One day, I hope to learn not to call people when I am thinking. I am guilty of making the annoying middle of the night phone call in which I say stuff like, "Woo hoo!" and "Dude, I'm thinking tonight. You should totally be here," and "I love you, man." I also send inappropriate text messages and humiliating emails when I've been thinking.
I come from a family of thinkers and recovering thinkers. Family gatherings can be awkward. I congregate with all the thinkers and we think together while the non-thinkers sit in the other room and judge us. They say things about how we are powerless over our thinking. It only makes us think more.
Sometimes, my thinking gets me into trouble, but generally, I'm a happy thinker. I like to think. In fact, I am thinking right now.
This blog is driving me to think.
