SoCS Jan. 23/16 – odd/even


I thought it odd that even with the weather being so bad, depressing and wet you still reached out to hold my hand.

Odd because until today you were not the most demonstrative of people. Even when we were alone you always sit at your end of the lounge and watched in isolation.

But you have always had odd ways about you. I read your blog and you post odd things, like the pebbles you find in the garden, the snails that you find traveling from one side of the yard to another…..but even when asked you look at me as if I am the odd one. You’ll say you write fairy tales, imaginative tales of little people living in your garden and you have the audacity to challenge me about what I write about.

She does have a point about that, I create tales which some think border on the real about the fairies in the garden.

But as I would say to her I don’t post naked body parts of myself on my blog.

They are artistic she will say, I’m making a statement about the conservative mentality of the populace in relation to nudity and anyway I never show anything rude or anything that might give me away to anyone other than you.

Even after a long discussion and exchange of ideas about our own oddities we always remain friends as it’s a banter we have, like an odd game in which we know the outcome well before we get close to any conclusion.

We are an odd couple even if we love each other with an unbridled passion.

    Sometimes the most challenging matches between people are the most rewarding. A lovely, warm post, Michael. 🙂

    Lol, I’m often left wondering what’s real and what’s not when I read your posts, Michael. Regardless, you must lead a colorful life. I think. 😄

  3. Glad you remain fiends. Good way to keep it. Nicely done Michael.

    Now, I’m not sure if this is a typo or deliberate – but either way, it begs for the imagination – in this case – mine – to run wild and free. This being said – no further explanation is needed Michael – i am content to let it sit in the “unknown” – and savor this delicious SoCS piece.

    Brilliantly written and insightful – an absolute delight 😀

  5. I must admit I figured it was a typo — friends not fiends. But as I thought more about the last two words, “unbridled passion,” I decided it was a) intentional or b) a Freudian slip. ;D

    Sa what? Fairies aren’t real? :/

    Oddly enough, Michael, I enjoyed reading this, even though I have no clue who SHE is *grins*
