She was my kind of crazy

January 25, 2014

your kind of crazy
If you don’t have a full tank of crazy, we have nothing in common, that’s what I say.
I had lunch the other week with a new friend, someone I met via social media.  Although we had never laid eyes on each other before, once we did, it was as if we’d known each other a very long time. Conversation didn’t just flow, it was like a tidal wave.
So what do I mean by “crazy?”
I don’t mean certifiable.
I mean “not pretentious.”  In any way shape or form.
Not pretentious as in “I’m a buttoned-up business type” or “I’m so spiritual I can’t handle anything that isn’t.”
I also mean “able to have a discussion.”  In every way, shape or form. No sacred cows. No having to agree on everything.
I mean “open.” Able to have robust disagreement.
And if not a snorter (let’s face it, not everyone is), my kind of crazy means someone’s able to let go and laugh like crazy.
Yeah, that woman was and is my kind of crazy.
A new friendship is born.

    Love this, Carol! You’ve captured my view of friendship completely. As I’ve aged, I’ve given up the need to be accepted by all and spend my time on authentic connections. Quality is far more rewarding than quantity, and so is a good snort!

    What a great post. I sometimes feel like I would connect with you like that as well. Then I feel like a stalker. LOL I love reading your posts, thanks for inviting me to your blog.

    Don’t you love when that happens? And don’t you marvel at its implications?

    My kinds of crazy. That says it all!

  6. I think one of the most remarkable aspects of the last 7 years of my life has been meeting up with people who I met over the internet.
    I have found all kinds of *new* crazy to love.
    What a blessing is that?!

  7. So wonderful! Now WE must meet! [[snort]]

    I love meeting people who I have an instant connection with. The internet allows us to meet lots of people and to sift through to those who are a good fit. I love that!! Bravo on finding a soul sister. 🙂

  9. Hi Carol….this is a very GOOD description of crazy and friendship! Whenever conversation happens like that it is wonderful…I’m just incredibly blessed that my husband happens to be “my kind of crazy” most of all! ~Kathy

    Yes! This! The best kind of crazy! I’m missing that in my life at the moment, but it is amazing when you meet someone that you not only click with, but can forgive the snorts.

    Beautiful sentiment Carol. I love this. I believe you have to have someone in your life that makes you happy and allows you to be the person you are destined to be. No matter how crazy that is. 🙂
