on normalcy

ummmm…Rob? OK, so maybe like most people, most Aries are actually kinda normal actin’…

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Some people would like the world better if it
didn’t have oddballs, freaks, black sheep, misfits, and crackpots.
Personally, I’m very much in favor of these types, and celebrate the
entertaining diversity they add to the world. I hope you share my
attitude, Aries, because you’re going to have to be in intimate
relationship with your own inner weirdo in the coming week. If you’re
prejudiced against people who don’t act normal, you’ll have trouble
dealing with the unusual urges and needs that will be welling up in you.
But if you’ve developed an appreciation for anomalous behavior, you’ll be
able to love yourself just right.

My inner weirdo? is that different from the outer one?

yeah, more like maybe I shouldn’t be so prejudiced against people who DO act normal? I saw a sticker the other day- “Normal people worry me.” They don’t worry me, but sometimes they scare me. Most of the time I just imagine the dark recesses of their minds and pasts, the skeletons in their closets they’re afraid to show, sometimes even to themselves, and feel sorry for the people who fear that darkness within. Yes, I walk around with my skeletons rattling along behind me at times, but only when they really want to come out and play. It’s much safer than keeping them cooped up all the time. But then, who knows…maybe some people really are just “normal”, well-adjusted, and content?

My kinda superhero…
