Getting lost from it and coming back again.



“I thought about an old boyfriend a lot today. i don’t know why. i thought about the time he got home from a trip and i came over to see him. his house was full of people but he just came over and took my hand and pulled me into his room and turned up gloria by van morrison as loud as it would go. I can’t hear that song without remembering how fun that night was. or how fun it always was– trying and failing to be quiet because he made me laugh so loud, or made me knock something over, or had me declaring something wildly because it felt good to be wild. One time in particular was the night he decided to teach me all the scientific names for all the body parts. he would say them and i would repeat them and we drank all night that way, getting tangled up and doing accents and getting lost from it and coming back again. There was a sweetness there. he never asked me to be his girlfriend, he just bought me a hair brush and put in it in his room, told me it was mine. it was yellow and he picked it out. on the way home from work i remembered it’s his birthday today.”

About Eccentrics

According to Dr David Weeks, a clinical neurophysiologist at Royal Edinburgh Hospital:

“An eccentric tends to be intelligent, outspoken, unmotivated by greed, dogged and healthy. Eccentrics do not know they are eccentric: they think their abnormal behaviour is perfectly normal. Because they are not concerned about conformity, they are much less prone to stress. And because of their humour and happiness, they tend to live longer.”
