I Yell At Everything
I noticed something rather odd about myself today. I talk to everything - including inanimate objects.
This morning I dropped a plastic bowl and "shhhh"-ed it.
The other day I spilled some water and I yelled "NO! STOP!" I don’t know why. Maybe I thought the water might feel badly about making such a mess and quit flowing all over the floor.
I slammed my finger in the door and said, "Stupid door!" as if it had closed itself ON PURPOSE, instead of ME being the stupid one in this instance.
I was folding laundry and a pair of socks rolled away from me... to which I instantly proclaimed "Get back here!" Because, ya know, socks do that. They come when called.
I think I have a problem. Does anyone else do this? Or is it just me?

I do it sometimes too.

Kimberly said...

I mostly do the wordless scream of frustration. "Argh!" and "Augh!"

My kids think I'm being a pirate sometimes.

I may yell out, but I rarely yell at the inanimate objects, as though they hear me. I think you need a margarita and a vacation.

:)

No, I do it too. I always thought it was the norm! Not the exception. ;)

You and me, baby, we're 'normal.' (ha, ha!)

Magirk said...

Ugh! Why can I never remember to put it in the same comment!!!

Love the new look! As always. ;)

Cute, cute, cute.

In my personal psychoanalysis, I think it is a manifestation of a good day, because I only do that when I feel confident enough that I can command all things in my presence with a mere word and naturally they should obey. I think you are totally normal. Or we are the same brand of crazy.

I thought everyone did this. Have I been a wierdo my whole life?!?

My kids tell me I mouth conversations with inanimate objects. Is that better than yelling at them??

Dedee said...

I regularly have convrsations with myself. Especially when sewing. That's when I'm the worst!

I'm in the club, too. My kids often ask what I am talking to.

talking to yourself keeps yourself sane. try to imagine life without doing it :]

Lauren said...

Hahahah! That is funny. Wanna hear something even funnier? If I hit my backpack (for example) against a door way I say "ouch" even though it didn't hurt me. hahah!

Carrot Jello said...

er...um...I'm wondering if I should just say that I do it too, so you don't feel bad.
I'll get back to you on that.

Tonya said...

Oh no, you are not alone. I do that A LOT. They say you should only worry when the things start talking back to you :)

Jean Knee said...

I don't think I do it a lot, but I do have to "try out" anything I'mm thinking of buying ex- I have to pretend use it, like if it's a spatula I have to practice flipping it in the store, people stare

Maddy said...

Lummy! You and my Dad are related! Which of course would mean that we're related too!
Cheers you silly sausage

Nancy Face said...

I probably do that, too...
