Wild Thing

When people start talking about their "good, wild days...", I often end up stumped. You see, I don't seem to have anything to contribute to such conversations. Not really anyway. Sure, I did some silly things in my past. I made mistakes, took some wrong turns... But, I've never been in drinking binges or did anything remotely 'experimental' or terribly crazy.

This thought doesn't usually bother me. I don't really mind, for the most part.

But, lately, some comments that I've been hearing are beginning to get me thinking. I guess, it just seemed extra weird when a chaplain recently told me in jest, "You're too well-rounded for my liking." Sure, it was just a joke. But, if a chaplain can actually say that I'm 'too wholesoome'... well. Ah. Well, indeed.

So, maybe it's time to put some edge to my square personality. 🙂

The trouble is, when I start brainstorming about 'Wild Things To Do' - I get really icky about most of the suggestions. For example, while soliciting for some wild ideas, someone mentioned something about getting a tattoo. Guess what my first reaction was? --- "But, isn't that too painful?" Ha. Pathetic, eh?

Anyway, I'd like to read about YOUR wild days and wild things. Perhaps, you can give me some ideas and suggestions on how people live on the wilder side of life.

If, however, you're anything like me when it comes to wild things, I'd like to hear from you too. Maybe we can console each other while singing "It's hip to be square..." Bleh.
