So I was out playing ball hockey with some friends the other night. One of the men was saying that lately he has this running soundtrack going in his head, songs come into his mind that go with what is happening or what someone says. He asked me if I knew what he meant. I told him that I understand the concept, but no, I have never experienced that. I believe there are 2 reasons for that, one is that I am not as musical as he is, but second the truth is what I jokingly said to him.
“No, all I have is an angry little man in my head, yelling all the time.” I was pretty pleased because I thought that was kind of funny, I mean, no one laughed, but still, I thought I was clever. Then I got to thinking…
I actually do have an angry little man in my head yelling all the time. Most of the time, I am the only one who can hear him, but sometimes his voice comes out of my mouth. Sometimes, I can’t stifle that voice quickly enough.
I wish I had a soundtrack, a happy soundtrack, I get quite tired of the angry little man, he wears you down over time. How do you stifle that, or change the voice in your head to something more positive? Yeah, that would be good, maybe I’ll work on that.
No, the little man just yelled, “BUTTERFLY KISSES” Not really sure what that means, I’ll get back to you.
