How To Not Fit In

Posted 04-19-10 at 02:11 AM by RedHairedWitch
Wear socks that donít match
Especially on Tuesday and Friday
And always with shorts
Wear a wrinkled pink blouse
With a bright red skirt
Red and pink are in the same family
Arenít they?

Donít get subtle hints
Be confused by mixed messages
And laugh at inappropriate jokes
Always say what you mean
And mean what you say
Because no one else does it that way

Take everyone at face value
Be open and honest
In everything you do
Having no hidden meaning behind your words
No hidden agenda behind your actions
Is sure to frighten and confuse

Be loud and boisterous in public
Quiet and reserved at home
Have moods that are affected by the weather
Remember to be daring and bold
Always act as if youíll never grow old

Wave with both hands
Bounce into rooms
Offer everyone a hug
And feel bad when they refuse
Dance when you are happy
And wilt when you are sad

When there is a job to do
Be the first to volunteer
Once people start to gossip
That youíre trying to take charge
Donít volunteer the next time
And they will complain about that too

Be friendly to everyone
Regardless of this or that
Refuse to take sides in disputes
At least, most of the time
See both sides of a debate
Try to get other people to do that too
It helps if youíre cute

Be more comfortable around pets than kids
Wear pyjamas all day
Donít go to bed until 2
Read lots of books
Watch too much Star Trek
Be sure to listen to Punk Rock too

Speak your mind all the time
And as for peer pressure
Never give in
No matter they may say
Or how they treat you
Always love yourself first
And promise youíll never change you!

    Oh, how I empathize with most of this list. I'm glad to see that other people feel this way.

    Can I share this? I am definitely a mixed-matched sock, all day pajamas, not fitting in on lots of other points person.
