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.
