Borderline

What do years of being together do to you? They allow for the development of odd psychic powers. Take this weekend, for instance.

Beth and I were walking into the grocery store and our eyes landed on the same woman at the exact same time. We exchanged a quick glance and Beth, almost immediately, uttered the word borderline. No one else would have any clue. Except us.

What Happened In My Head:
Dude, that woman is T-I-N-Y! And we saw a midget little person here yesterday. What are the odds? Maybe there is a Midgetville around here after all. Urban legend? I think not. They're right here under our noses and they're waiting for the high sign from Midget High Command to launch the first wave of attacks. Oh...hello reality, you wicked mistress of truth. She's not really a midget little person though. Almost, but not quite. Kind of an underachieving little person.

What Happened Out Loud:
Beth: Borderline.
Me: Yup.


This morning's random iPoddage...Killing All The Flies (Mogwai), Forever My Friend (Ray LaMontagne), Homecoming King (Guster), Take What You Want (Sense Field), Beetlebum (Blur), Blind Pilots (The Cooper Temple Clause), Stay Away (Rooney), Little Miss More or Less (Magnet), Tear N My Side (Gemma Hayes), and Israel's Song (Built To Spill).

my sister and i have the same kind of thing going. every once in a while things will go weirdly wrong and the end of the conversation will go something like, "Wait. What did you say?" -- "What did you think I said/meant?" -- "Why would I say that!?!" -- "You're weird." -- "Well your strange." -- "Whatever." -- "Yeah."

But I'm sure that doesn't ever happen to you and Beth. :D

How much fun would it be to hook electrodes to your heads and actually hear these entirely insance conversations that happen? I'm thinking ALOT of fun.

And that's how you know it's true love.

Ok, Matt and I do the same thing.

Btw, we have a Holiday Inn across the way, and you'll never believe who was here last month. Yes, that's right, "Welcome the Little People of America" here. Across.the.street.

I love that, love that you can just look at your spouse and know exactly what they are thinking and they you. It makes people watching a heckuva lot of fun.

I absolutely could not see where this was going - which made the punch line even funnier. Hee!

now, see, my first thought, before reading the entire entry was, "wow, beth can spot borderline personality disorder just by looking at 'em? THAT IS SO COOL!"

:) I love that understand-state of mind.

sometimes Big Daddy just looks at me and says, "I heard that thought."

I'm totally one of those borderline people. Well, to me I am. I'm smaller than my 11 year old niece. She's like a giant compared to me. So... maybe I'm non-borderline and just a total midget. In my own head, I'm small but so not a midget. I mean, I don't have the midget hands. And I'm done rambling now.

So I just went to Beth's blog...and... work filters now block her "adult content prohibited" ha ha I thought y'all would find that amusing.

just wanted to say thanks for dropping by my blog :)

I used to share that psychic connection thing with my ex. It was handy for grocery shopping and such, but when things are going wrong in a relationship, sometimes it's best not to know what the other person is thinking. lol And nice iPod tunes! I picked up Guster this past weekend and am loving it!

We have conversations like that all the time. In fact, those convos are the reason I got married.

Hubby is a hit or miss... ;) Somedays he is right on target, getting it, others I wonder where he is and if I should be visiting that planet instead ;)

isn't it fun when those things happen?

like when you don't have to say "what's on your mind?" all the time anymore, because most of the time you know. instead you say, "i saw you turn it off," or "i thought she was pregnant too."
