The clearance linen show girlPosted: August 24, 2010
So, I’m watching this chick on … a shopping channel (don’t want to give away which one) at 3 in the morning. I usually turn this girl off when she comes on this channel. She’s really annoying. She just never gets her story out. She’s sitting there doing all this thinking and using filler words like “uhh” and “umm.” She’s really not saying much of anything. Completely scatterbrained.
I don’t even know why I left her on today. I just wanted to have noise in the background while I did things around the apartment. As I was listening to her, I put myself in her shoes.
How would I act in her position?
She is selling clearance linen, which is probably the hardest thing to sell. She is probably tired because normal people sleep at this time. I actually started to feel for her.
Suddenly, it came to me. This girl IS me!
I use a lot of filler words when I lose my train of thought. My friends tell me I’m neurotic, so I guess I really am pretty scatterbrained. I have a lot going on up there, but I’m not very good at getting it out. I’m a terrible liar, so I can not sell something I don’t believe in. Oh my goodness. I should pay more attention to this girl. Maybe it could help me see how the world sees me. Then, I could use that to my advantage and start to change those things in myself so I present myself better.
This could be good for me.
*Note to self: Watch chick on clearance linen show at 3 in the morning. … And P.S. stop being so hard on people.*
Have you ever had a revelation like that? Something that could actually help you discover more about the way the world sees you?
