Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!

I fall in love with people, madly, deeply, albeit randomly, in love!

What incredible combination of looks or talent do these, little crushes, possess? I'm glad you asked. If you want me to fall crazy in love with you it would be helpful if you were a bit odd, vulnerable in the way or two of acceptable societal norms.

For instance, if you were an obviously single fella who walks everywhere you go (I see you walking all over town) including to the gym each morning for an hour and a half workout on the Elliptical... I just might fall in love with you.

Or, perhaps, your name tag says, Marcia, you haven't a tooth in your head, you just can't quite figured out that 'dad gum' cash register, but apologize profusely for adding an extra minute to my check-out time, before handing me back my check with a reminder that, "The money will come out electronical." Then, I will most definitely fall wildly in love with you.

Darling Odd Balls beware, you just might have a secret admirer!

AAHHH -- Been to Wal-Mart again, Huh? :) I get what you mean. I totally love the little man who takes five minute to bag my 6 items at the store. Why? Because he thinks my children are gems!

Mummy McTavish said...

I'm with you there! But really, what does this say about our husbands?

I too just adore the real characters in life, the people who go about the world hearing their very own drum line--

I am with you! I actually married an odd ball, like you didn't already know that! Those people keep smiles on our faces and don't always take life too seriously.

I think I just fell in love with *you*! I am so impressed with people who love the quirky, the overused, the forgotten, the little oddities of life. When I was set apart for my current calling the phrase that kept coming over and over was that I was the advocate and voice for those sisters who never get a voice, never are seen, who are forgotten or are lost. Wow. It is amazing how I have watched how invisible some people are to others, and I am happy to know someone else sees them too! : )

Whew! At least someone loves me.

Hilarious comment Cowboy Mom! (she's my awesome sis)

Surprisingly it wasn't Wal-Mart! There is a new store in town called, Buy Low Market. Every employee I've met is a potential Odd Ball Crush, I just long to hear all their stories, fascinating people.

Husbands are the best Odd Balls of all.

It's nice that people aren't all the same, isn't it?

Hysterical. It's those different people in life that make it interesting.

So glad to be back reading and posting again.
