Looking Stupid: How well do you do?

Listen, I am just going to put it out here…I often look stupid on purpose.

First time for my friend Joe, the staff celebrated by giving us hats!!

Okay, so I didn’t really mean silly, or goofy, I truly mean stupid. I do this for many reasons, one of which is to get you to talk to me. I want you to tell me what you think. I want you to say what’s on your mind, I want you to not fear looking stupid, so if I look stupid first, this allows room for you to feel it’s okay, or that at least you won’t look as dumb as me. I am secure in myself, so I really don’t mind, it serves a purpose!

Another reason I appear dumb, is so that you remember I am not perfect. FAR FROM IT. I am a perfectly flawed human, sometimes to the point of dumbness. We all have our moments of being questionable, and I like to spend my fair share of time there…maybe too much at times. Alas, we all have to remember, a shiny penny becomes dull, but that doesn’t make it any less than a penny. We are all flawed humans, and no matter how we spruce ourselves up, we are still flawed at the end of the day. Perception is that pretty is more worthy or worth more. That’s a lie, and I am here as your constant reminder, let me show you something dumb.

This was Saturday, Bill and I were out and about, and I had a bunch of big heads in the car. Brooke was down about something, so we “took her on a ride” with us. If you cannot look dumb to cheer another up, what are you actually doing with your life? My grandma and dad were pros at this, and dammit, I excel at it too. I will look like a complete ass if it puts a smile on your face and a laugh in your belly. I mean, come on people, no one impresses me with their intellect, but you can definitely impress me with your wit and humor, to me that is sexy intelligence!

This is what I live for. Looking dumb. Yes, I am intelligent, I do okay, and so many people look smart, when they really aren’t…but can they be dumb for others? Can you be dumb for someone else’s sake, let them think lowly of you, or superior to you because it doesn’t matter? Can you make someone laugh by being stupid, to brighten their day? I think we have put way too much faith and stock in our perception of others’ intelligence, when we can only measure(May-zhur) from our own limitations…but dumb, we seriously can all relate to.

Drop me a line, let me know what you think about this topic, I would truly love to know!
