I’m Cooler In My Brain [COMIC]

As many of you know, I spent a week or so in Ohio on vacation. I also attended my 20th year High School Reunion  while I was up there, and hung out and reconnected with friends.

It was my chance to share my world with the stepson and husband. I wanted to show them the state park that I grew up with as my backyard. I wanted them to meet my friends and see the world I lived in for the first 20 or so years of my life. Needless to say I had a lot of idea and plans about how things would go.

What I hadn’t counted on? Record levels of rain and flooding:

The lake was flooded even thought the dam gates were open wide. The beach sand was covered and the water lapped on the grass above the shore line.  The shores I had wanted to explore were under feet of water.

I also hadn’t anticipated that the stepson is used to a very different form of vacationing. He is used to trips that are jam-packed of activities and plans, that are planned around his joy and amusement, and that always take his entertainment into account.  This was a family visit. I had intentionally left it free of plans.  While it was still raining early in the trip, he told us “This vacation is the most boring thing ever.”

I don’t mind being boring. Boredom ignites the imagination, and makes us more comfortable with ourselves. But maybe that’s just because I’m a huge introvert and there are always more books to read.

Visiting my oldest dearest friends went exactly as I had envisioned it, so no comics for them. I have no dashed hopes about the kiddo enjoying my friends’ two kids – they got along swimmingly.  I had no disappointments in my interactions with my besties from way way way back.

Then, there was the High School Reunion.  I was determined to do some Geek Recovery.  I’m not sure that panned out….

My conclusion? I’m way cooler in my brain than I am in real life.
