There are people in this world who are a bit different.
To say they are peculiar or odd is not really true.
They just look at the world and life from a different perspective.

These different people may be somewhat eccentric and unconventional.
They are often whimsical and fanciful and humorous.
The best word to describe them is quirky.

They are not linear or direct in their thinking.
Their thoughts can wander in circles and be highly imaginative.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t logical or intelligent.

They are people who think and react differently.
They can be exasperating and annoying at times.
More often they are charming and entertaining.

Personally, I like quirky people.
They make me think outside of myself.
Life would be dull without some characters in the mix.

Be someone who accepts people for who they are, even the quirky.

We Were Blue…

Three Line Tales Week 26

Blue

This is fun and so exciting  being together in our native blue camp lodges while we wait for the others to finally join us. I can’t help wondering if after all this time they will know us now that we have completed our metamorphosis and become like everyone else here and no longer look like foreigners. Wasn’t it funny when we first got here and the native peoples were surprised that we were blue because they thought all people from other worlds were green?

Wonderful, awful, wonderful…

Well, it’s Tuesday Chatter time
and I am going to tell you about I walk I took last week.
It was wonderful then awful then wonderful.

The first wonderful part was the weather was great,
I was up early and eager to get things done.
I thought I would start with a walk to the hair salon
to get my hair cut then to the grocery to get strawberries.
Hair cut, strawberries bought, walking home.
Wonderful.

Then the awful.
I tripped on a curb in the parking lot.
Fell down hard!
Bleeding from my nose and head, bruised, dizzy.
Several people helped me up and into a shop.
Someone in the shop called 911.
Ambulance came I went to ER.
Had a CAT scan and x-ray.
Head ok but with a mild concussion, needed stitches.
Hand ok but badly bruised hurt worse than my head.
Four and a half hours later I called a friend to take me home.
Awful.

The second wonderful is part of the awful.
I was in a public place so there was help right away.
The people who helped me were kind and caring.
A man held a towel to my head to keep the bleeding under control.
I was given towels for my nose.
A woman brought a warm wet towel and washed my hands.
Another woman held my hand until the EMT’s got there.
The ER was busy with more serious injuries than mine
but I was cared for without too much waiting.
My friend was there when I needed him.
Wonderful.

Now the concussion is gone, I have stitches and a black eye.
My face is swollen and sort of purple, green and yellow, as is my hand.
Not wonderful but not awful.
Might be wonderful if I looked as good with my black eye as the cat does with his.
Still, blessings more than I can count.
Wonderful.
