Turning Off and Tuning Out

You may or may not know that I write for another site. I know, I know, you are thinking you hardly write here anymore, how could you possibly write somewhere else? Well how about that doesn’t even matter right now, ok?

Enteeways, as I was saying when I rudely interrupted before I said something, I write for another site.One of the editors there (yea, they big time) said one of my posts wasn’t me. WTFudgeycakes?!?!? Of course its me, I wrote it! No, no, no, she said….its not snarky (is that even a word?) enough, it doesn’t have that signature sarcastic humor you always write with. Do it again.

Excuse me? Did she just say I wasn’t writing like myself and I needed to do it again?

Uh, no, I politely told her. This is me. Everything I have to say isn’t snarky or sarcastic or humorous. I am not ALWAYS on.

To which she kindly replied, well you should be.

Wow.

I had never considered that people expect me to be ‘ON’ all the time. I mean, I know I have said some funny things, but not all the time. And yea, I am sarcastic, but not all the time.

Can I not be off? Am I not allowed to tune out?

Well, I did, and I have, and I liked it.  As much as I like being on, I treasure the moments when I can be off. If I am always on, you won’t enjoy me as much in the long run. There will be no surprise in our times together, and I am all about keeping you on your toes.

So to those of you who live as the life of the party, turn off sometimes.

Recharge.

Reboot.

Relax.

Being on all the time takes a toll on you.

And its ok to turn off and tune out.

And if they don’t like it, find a really sarcastic, snarky statement, say it to them, and proceed to turn off and tune them out.
