Enter Thought Here

Have you ever seen someone look at you and wondered what they were thinking?  Maybe they are someone you know.  Have you ever just gone up to that person and said, “Hi” just to see if you were right?  That happens to me all the time.  I’m the one that gets approached.  It happens to me a lot.  I hope it isn’t because I am staring.  If I was, I didn’t do it on purpose unless you look like a Wal-Martian.

If anything it’s because I was spacing out.  I guess I am just an approachable person.  The other day I had this guy come up to me (at Wal-Mart) and asked where the place was that was printed on my jacket.  I guess that was a legit question since it was my softball jacket from Japan.  It wasn’t in Kanji or Katakana, it was in English (Misawa Jets).  I guess he wanted to beat me if I was as NY Jets fan or something.  No worries about that, I am a Pittsburgh Steeler fan and I had a few pounds on the guy.  I told him it was a place in northern Japan and I played softball and this was my team jacket.  I guess I confused the guy.  He said, “Oh, OK” and walked away.

Have you ever actually run into someone you knew though?  You see them and you do the polite head nod or the timeless peace sign.  But what if they are in the same isle or right there beside you? Ugh, the stupid questions you get when that happens.

Yup!  Hunting elephants.  WTH!  I guess it’s just one of those awkward moments when you don’t really want to talk but societal rules make you say something.  I guess I can’t really complain about this that much.  I like to talk to people.  I even do the “Dap” and man hug with my best of friends whenever and wherever I see them.  I’m just that kinda guy.

I like to people watch.  I love trying to guess what they are thinking or what they do in life.  I am probably almost always wrong but it’s fun.  Ever try making up a conversation of those you see while watching people talk?  Ha, you can make some crazy ish up doing that.  It takes a little practice.  I think it helps to have a good sense of humor to do it.

I think it’s fun to try and figure out people.  I really like to guess what they are thinking.  I always ask.  You never know what you are missing out on.  And if you don’t tell me what you’re thinking, well, I will just “Enter Thought Here.”

So here is a homework assignment:

Well, I just want you to leave me a comment, who am I kidding?  Give me one of your random thoughts.  No need to be witty or cute.  It can be on anything.  If you want, you can give me a random thought to write about as a topic.  Grading of homework will be subjective…….good luck!

  1. I often ask what people are thinking and I have an odd way of digging it out of them. Most people get a little offended after they realize I tricked them into telling me even if they didn’t want to…

    As for people you know in public places. I flash a devilishly mischievous smile and they run away 😀

  2. I swear I knew I should be a counselor and get paid for listening to people instead of doing it for free when it didn’t matter who I was with or what i was doing people would sit by me and tell me their issues.

    I am not exaggerating. I was at a state fair in the carnival section watching my children ride the rides when this lady sits down tells me how she misses her guatamalan bf but his wife back home needed him so he won’t be back in the us for another month… takes out picture to prove said bf and asks me how I deal with lonliness… can we please say WTH! 😀

    • That has to be the weirdest moment when someone just sits down beside you and ask that. I have sat down by people and just started talking but it was about what was going on around us. But as a counselor you must be an approachable person. You probably have that “I care about you” look.
