"You know, they say that there is a part of the human chest that if you strike it hard enough the person’s heart explodes. This sounds like such a lie that I have to believe it’s the truth. If I were science, I’d never tell anyone where this place is. If I were science, I’d have named this place after you." -Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, excerpt from "Not As Smart As I Think I Am" via ahuntersheart.tumblr.com
How often do you feel embarrassed about something you said?
I think I am embarrassed at least five times a day, on average.
I get a bit caught up when I think about being embarrassed, because I am of two minds about it: one, being embarrassed is silly, and just a product of me being overly critical of myself as well as a bit self-centered, to think that other people are putting so much analysis into some little thing I said or did.
two: that I have a big, giant, uncontrollable mouth and I say things all the time that at least appear to be judgmental or even (gulp) mean, when in my mind, usually, they are my (potentially lame) attempts at humor.
I am also clearly in desperate need of a class entitled,
“How To Be Quiet, At Least Sometimes, For God’s Sake”.
If this makes you want to run on a treadmill in an underground bunker, I like you.
I would like to think that something more exciting than this will happen in 2012, but I am not sure I can beat what you are about to witness in the video below.
Seriously, it was mega exciting.
Life continues to surprise me.
