(Q)UIET – Blogging from A to Z

Despite being the coolest of cool I’m actually a closet nerd and I was going to post on quantum physics for my “Q” word but that’s actually two words and a huge topic to tackle in one post.
Instead, I chose the word QUIET.
A word most people would not associate with me but hey! I have my moments!
Pretty sure nobody has these thought bubbles about me.This is especially true if you’re in a little social gathering and some douche bag walks up and starts spewing forth a bunch of bullshit. I just kinda’ sit there and wait for the rope to tighten around his neck before I throw in my two cents.
“Not only are you full of yourself. You’re full of shit.”
Why do people invite me to things???
I am NEVER attracted to this person. I am SUSPECT of this person.
This person lacks social skills and apparently graduated from the Helen Keller school of speech.
This person is planning a homicide.See????? It’s the quiet guy at the party. Or it’s my creepy neighbor with the tote full of naked Barbies. Come to think of it. I’ve never heard him speak either…Wait. What??? How does that work???I miss my loud lit’l munchkins but I’ve got some up n’ coming loud lit’l grand-munchkins so the beat goes on, huh?
And now that song is playing in my head…
One of those times is missing from my watch.
Thank you Mel Brooks. You get me.
True story.
Quiet may actually describe my day ahead as the majority of it will be spent doing a lot of reading, a little sewing, and sitting in on a Catholic webinar series.
It’s not even noon and it’s almost 80 degrees! – I’m lovin’ it. – April 20th and I’ve already got a tan!
I hope you’re having great weather wherever you are and that your day brings you the level of quietness you require. I suspect much like sleep, that level is different for all of us.
Make it a great day and Happy A to Z’ing to my fellow A to Z’ers!
Only 9 days left!

  1. I can’t keep my trap shut. I’m the one hanging off the chandelier at a party. I’ve had times where I had so much fun I have to ask others what I did. You get the idea. Never had any moss grow under my feet or anywhere else for that matter.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  2. As an only child who grew up in a rural part of town, I need quiet. I hate noise. I go apoplectic when I hear loud music outside or next door. I even get vexed when Russell turns the TV on the second we get up, esp. if he has to watch an action movie. I’ll be grumbling, ‘why do these damn movies have to have such loud explosions, shouting and crappy heavy metal????’ I will grab the remote and turn the volume way way down. I can’t stand loud noises. I will listen to the music in my car real loud but at home, I don’t want the TV blasting.

    1. As you know, I’m not a fan of t.v. I am especially not a fan of t.v. when I go to someone’s house and they have the volume up to nursing home volume. However, have you ever noticed – and I’m sure with your sensitivity, you have – that the t.v. can be perfectly fine and then a commercial comes on and about blasts you off the couch!


  3. I am often quiet at gatherings, but not planning murder, just don’t do well around people I don’t know because I don’t know what they might find offensive, and that takes away about 80% of my material. The other 20% is only useful during football season.

  4. Favorite music – loud in my car – otherwise I want quiet, I need quiet. Large gathering? Yeah, mentally I’m ready to leave the moment I walk in. Murder? Only fantasies, very vivid fantasies, I write in my head all of the time. HAHA I don’t like wrestling, football, or any of those loud sports, yet Nascar has a special appeal. Guess I am a mess. Call the men with the white coats!

  5. Karen, I love your response to douche bags full of bullshit!!! Someone who is too quiet makes me kinda nervous. I always figure that person lacks social skills or yeah, quietly planning a homicide. LOL about the β€œDon’t judge me” quote! There really is β€œa time to be quiet and a time to talk.” Btw, quantum physics, I’m quite impressed! πŸ™‚
