If you’ve stumbled upon this blog, you’ve stumbled upon “just one’s life” in this world who has found an outlet for what I call my “only child syndrome”… hee hee… “Growing up” as an only child and being the oldest grandchild in my family, I had a lot of alone time with a child’s imagination and no limits… With no brothers or sisters to whisper to or share secrets with, no one near my age in the household, and surrounded by all adults that I didn’t dare share what was on my mind – I learned at a very young age to amuse myself – and sometimes bemuse myself… This habit, now carrying into my adulthood, explains why I can burst out laughing on random occasions in random places, have uncontrollable facial movements when I puzzle myself that my cause a stranger to cross the street, or seemingly be in my own world no matter where I’m at… And now, thanks to the good ol’ internet real estate, I can share my thought process with the rest of you (should you be amused or bemused)… LOL … Eh’ what the heck – why not ;)
