I get by with a little help from my friends

Weirdos of the world, unite!

Just today, there was an interesting post over at Your Rainforest Mind that really reminded me of my childhood and, really, most of my life.  I was pretty much a loner for most of my youth, barring a few kids that I played with.  Most of my peers just thought I was weird and didn’t want much to do with me.  I was unusually good at answering questions in class, even though my grades didn’t reflect it (I was bored!).  I was (and am) more of a deep thinker than many of my peers, and  my sense of humor is, frankly, often too subtle for most of the people around me.

I am one of the lucky ones, though!  I have been able to attract or otherwise surround myself with people who appreciate my off-beat humor, and my lovely partner in crime actually likes the way I think and see the world.  Sure, we often go opposite directions to get to a solution, but we usually come to the same ideological place, just via different routes.  We’re kind of funny that way.

I don’t have much to add to the original post, but I appreciate that I’m not unique in my experience.  Us weirdos gotta stick together.
