Today my husband was reading friend’s statuses out loud to me and I was automatically able to tell him WHOSE status it was just by what it said. I then realized how funny it was that just by the tone of a certain statement or regular wording someone uses, you can indeed tell who said it.
There are certain people in my life that I can hear them walking and know it’s them. They can cough or sneeze a few aisles away in the store and I’m sure it’s them. You can become so used to a person that even small details about them become uniquely “them” in your mind. You can see or hear something and you think, “That’s so that person” or “That’s something they would say.”
Now I have certain friends and family where I can read their Facebook status and know who said it. Some of them are people I am really close to and some not as close but I’ve just become used to what kinds of things they seem to talk about a lot or the way they word their statements. Isn’t it interesting how someone can become sort of known for a Facebook status the way people used to know them for their conversations in public or their demeanor?
I really appreciate when a person’s status is out of the norm and leaves me guessing at who said it. I like the reminder that even when you think you know a person, there can be some much more to them. Just as long as they’re not hiding a serial killer secret……
Do you have a person in your life that loves the word “nothing”?
My husband seems to LOVE that word. Me? Not so much. I have discussed my issues with that word with people before but it just never ceases to amaze me how many people like to overuse that word.
I like to ask my husband what he’s doing when I’m in one room and he’s in another one. His favorite reply is “Nothing.” This really screws with my head. I do not GET how a person could literally be doing nothing…..I mean, even if you’re sitting down, staring into space…aren’t you at least thinking? But I guess if he is doing something rather boring, he thinks saying nothing will somehow spice it up enough that I will be satisfied and move on. It never works though….I usually get frustrated and tell him so.
First of all, if you say “Nothing” really quick after I ask you….it just screams “I’m doing something inappropriate and I don’t want you to know!” Right?! It’s like…Why don’t you want to tell me what you’re doing?
Of course I KNOW sometimes he says it because he is just watching TV or playing on his phone and it’s just easier to simply say “nothing” and get the conversation over. But when you know that I’m going to get frustrated and ask what is this “nothing” you’re actually doing, why must you continue to do so when it’s actually going to prolong the discussion? I just don’t get it and I don’t think I ever will!
Does anyone else detest when people do this as much as I do? Or am I making too much of a thing out of literally…nothing?
(Side note to my blog: My nanny fell again last night and broke a bone in her neck as well as bruising her knee up bad and possibly breaking a bone in it. She is currently in the hospital with a neck brace and they are going to be keeping her for a few days, at least. Prayers, wishes and kind thoughts are greatly appreciated for my family. My mom has been through a lot these past few months and is finally getting around good without a walker or a cane. Now she is trying to help with her mom(my nanny) and make sure that everything is good with her. So my mom and nanny could definitely use prayers, good karma…whatever you personally believe in. Thanks so much to all my blog friends who I know will do so)
