Not so there

Fae appears to have noticed something about me in the past few days that no one else has noticed before… or maybe they were just too nice to comment about it.

Apparently, I have mentally challenged moments. This doesn’t come as a huge shock to me, my dad has long called me the stupidest smart person he knows. This is because I generally live in my head, and I tend to zone out. I also tend to mess up on the small, stupid things in life because I’m too busy thinking about bigger things. Or at least, I like to think that’s my excuse for being stupid.

This isn’t a new revelation, Fae once looked back in the car and saw me just grinning absently out the window. Since in her family people don’t smile, she was shocked.

And then there was the night with the Fanta. Where I just couldn’t get it in my head that the pop machine wasn’t working in the hostel.

Then, the other night we went to the movie store with Fae’s boyfriend and roommate. When I get out the car I suddenly realize that Fae’s looking at me funny.
“What…?”
“Nothing….”

We go inside. I’m walking around, looking at the movies. Suddenly, Fae turns around and starts laughing at me.
“What…?”

Apparently I was actually walking around, twirling my hair with my finger with this blank smile on my face. Fae was hysterical. Apparently I’d had the exact same blank expression when I got out of the car earlier.

We have since come to the conclusion that I have mentally challenged moments. And it makes so much sense. I also sometimes rock back and forth in circles when I’m sitting down, without realizing it.

I swear I’m really a smart person….

    ‘Off with the faeries’ is the phrase we use here…

    I’m sure you’re smart too! *pats*

    My dad says that about me too! This might explain why we’re friends.

    I have these moments too…which is probably why I don’t notice/don’t point it out when you do! hahaha. And I DEFINITELY do the hair twirling, blank look thing. A lot.

    Well… you know Einstein was slightly “challenged” as well (probably more so than you.)

    You could just tell people it’s because you are a genius.
