Daily Prompt: Far From Normal


Daily Prompt: Far From Normal

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might.


My Normal

If you peer into my life you may wonder what it’s like to live in a place so wild that it’s just as normal to carry bear spray as it is to carry lip balm.

You may be surprised that to learn that I often listen to french pop music.   C’est vrai!    J’adore Amelie Les Crayons et Marie Pier-Perrault.

Maybe I can impress you by playing, on piano, one of those french songs I learnt by ear.  Or I could play from the hymnal if you prefer.

Will you think it strange that I play from the hymnal but I don’t believe in gods?

Looking at my normal, you’ll see that I don’t cook.  My husband does the cooking and the grocery shopping.  Lucky me, eh?   I do regularly bake yummy stuff, but I don’t give dinner a thought.

If you’re peering in at the right time, you’ll have a good laugh when you see me doing the Monkey Cha-cha with my two little  grandaughters. Don’t be nervous when they fall backwards off a chair, into my outstretched arms and we twirl into a dramatic finish.  We know what we’re doing.
