I Wonder What Would Happen If:

I was sitting at lunch yesterday and something was mentioned that made me think of doing this on my blog and I said "I've GOT to blog about this" and everyone looked at me like I was a freak. Nerds. :) haha

Last night on Desperate Housewives, Brie totally proved why I had to write about this. She stood up in the middle of her husband's funeral and yells "WAIT!!!" She had to change the hideous tie he was wearing, but that's beside the point. There are so many times when I'm in a situation like a funeral or wedding or some other event where I'm expected to be proper and all the while I'm sitting there wondering "What would happen if I....". I'll give you examples.

Sitting at a funeral (since this is fresh on my mind from last night's show), I wonder what would happen if I just went into a maniacal screaming episode and stormed all around the room?

At a wedding when the minister asks if there's anyone who objects, speak now... what if I objected? Just for the heck of it. Not because I have an objection, I just wonder what people would think? (don't worry, April. I'm SO not gonna do this to you... probably not).

Sitting at the doctor's office waiting room, I wonder what would happen if I flopped down on the floor in convulsions or something and then immediately got back up and sat in my chair as if nothing ever happened?

What if I screamed at the top of my lungs in the middle of Wal-Mart, just because?

It makes me giggle when I'm in these situations and start thinking of what might happen. People already probably think I'm a little nuts for laughing to myself for no apparent reason. I really never would do any of these things. I just wonder what would happen if I did.

I'll give you a Coke if you do one of those things (Just so you know -when I was growing up in Kenya, getting offered a free Coke was tantamount to a trip to Disney Land).

So I'll give you a Coke - I could deliver it to FBC Springdale...

And by the way - I LOVE Brie. I think she is the best one on that show - so icey - so neat. Brrr.

I've thought of some of these things too. So if that makes you nuts, I'm joining the club too :)

I like your imagination!

Bleu - I do enjoy Brie, but I think my favorite is Lynnette becaues I'm most like her. Her multitasking the other night was priceless and so often I feel like that's what I have to do, being a SAHM and all. As for the Coke, I'm game! In fact, I've got a doctor's appointment tomorrow.... hehehehehehe

Maki - I'm SO glad I'm not the abnormal freak I thought I was for wondering these things...... or at least that I'm not the only abnormal freak! :)

I'd bet that if you ever did any of those things, and if you immediately went back to being normal, as soon as you'd finished, I just bet that everyone would completely ignore it. Completely.

Though they might stand just a leeetle further away...

sometimes I want to wildly wave my hands in the choir loft when Pastor is preaching and I know that I am in the background on the cameras....

Jill said...

Mary - forgive they might, forget - not so much, huh? :) hehehe Might be worth it if I did one of the acts of insanity when I was with someone I didn't like so much. HA! That's devious.

Sarah - you don't even know how I wanted to put something like that on there and then I thought that I might be banned from choir just because I'd had those wretched thoughts!! But I have SO thought about doing that, too! We should have some sort of secret code look thing and when we give the go ahead, both of us could just stand up and go totally NUTS!! You wanna?! ;)
