How Many Kinds of Crazy

on June 17, 2013

I am, by many standards, crazy. I can’t think of a time in my life when I wasn’t up front and honest about it. Why wouldn’t I be honest? There’s nothing wrong with me. I live a somewhat normal life and from a distance, I probably seem “normal.”

I’m crazy like I’ll stay out until 3 am on a Monday. I’m crazy like I’ll tell you what I think before I think about what I’m saying. I’m crazy like your boyfriend hurts your feelings and I harass the shit out of that fucker cause you’re my friend and that’s what friends do for each other. I’m crazy because I follow my heart waaay before I follow my head-or your (probably good) advice. I’m crazy like those country songs-“Angel Eyes” “She Ain’t Right” etc. And that Buckcherry song “Crazy Bitch” really speaks to me. And to my last boyfriend, I’m sure. 

 My friends know how I am and they love me for it. One of them told me a while back that she loves my quirks-that’s what makes me who I am. I have more friends than I have family-that counts 3 different sets of family. And my close friends accept how I am and they are careful about how they talk to me. Last night for example, I was cleaning up my room and a close friend was over. She was talking about current life situations, and referred to someone as “crazy.” Seeing the look on my face, are quickly backtracked and said, “legit crazy. Not like you.” 

Flattering as that is, I got to wondering….how many different kinds of crazy are there?
