My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Then Jim Morrison Said....

I occasionally talk to myself. By occasionally I mean half of my day is spent doing an inner monologue. And just to keep it interesting I have given those voices in my head voices other than mine.

Now before you call the men in little white coats, hear me out!

I am an only child whose parents lived to be condescending to each other. If they spoke to each other, it was not civil, and I preferred not to be caught up in the fallout. So I spent a lot of time in my room all by myself as a kid. I had the menagerie of imaginary friends, those friends developed personalities and well, you get it.

Now as a 28 year old mother of two, I still let those inner voices speak to me. Perhaps this doesn't sound normal (or healthy for that matter), but I am always in control of the voices and they never tell me to gather sub-machine guns, barrels of water, and find the Chosen One. It's a fun little outlet. It's my way of escaping daily life while still being a responsible adult. Some people knit, some people jog. I verbally joust with Jim Morrison (from the band The Doors). It keeps me sharp (he's almost as snarky as I am).

For those of you who already thought I was swimming briskly in the deep end of the crazy pool, I probably didn't help myself any here. But I don't care. We all have quirks and things we do to keep us functioning. It could be worse- I could be a Republican.

--The Milk Maid says break on thru to the other side!

I'd much rather you be crazy. If you were Republican, we couldn't be friends! : ) Well, we could be friends I guess..but I'd talk bad about you behind your back.

I agree with B, I'd rather you were crazy too. It's fun to read about and well republican's are just too dull. I had a boyfriend once who told me he talked to himself. Little did I know what he meant until one night we had a fight and I left but came back to sleep on the couch. He got up stumbling around in the morning and didn't see me there and was having a total conversation about how he kicked me out, with himself. It was just like he was talking on the phone, without the phone.

I like crazy. Crazy is my friend!

B said...

OMG Michelle! Did he ever see you there? Good thing you dumped that guy. It's all well and fine to be friends with someone who's crazy, but you shouldn't live with them! What if the voices in their head tell them to kill you in the middle of the night?

You aren't crazy... well any crazier than I anyhow. And yes boo on the Republican thing... if you were Republican you probably would have a WAY different nickname for me! hee hee

B said...

Meg, if she were republican, she wouldn't be able to talk to us. I think the republican police kill their members for talking to lesbians. Unless, you're Dick Cheneys daughter. Even then, you're not really publicly acknowledged.

Oddly enough, I talk to Jim, too, but he can be a real ass sometimes, you know? I actually enjoy the conversations I have with my inner voices. Some are wise, some are mean, some are downright hysterical. But none are Republican. They'd be kicked out very quickly.

You are probably right B!
