Mind Wandering: You Do This Too

My memories are whimsical. They surface into my conscious mind abruptly throughout the day. And then I laugh. Often in the wrong setting… where I almost have to cough or fidget to wipe off my crooked grin and swallow back down that uncontrollable chuckle. I’d like to share one example.

I’m 16. A lady litters on a median strip as she crosses the street. I pick it up and hand it back to her, “Excuse me miss, you dropped something.”

“Oh… okay…” she says, with her mouth agape.

And then I walk away triumphantly with a grin on my face.

The same grin I have on right now, in the middle of your sentence.


P.S. I am fully aware of this flaw of mine and am actively working on it!
