People really seem to love our (A)Musings board. A customer, after answering this week’s prompt anonymously, said to me a few days ago how she wishes she had one at home. So she could actually communicate. Rather than ponder the tragedy of this, she and I chose to look at the bright side.
Some answers are very silly… and some aren’t.
WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING, I PRETEND…
… to be in conversation with God.
… that this day really is special and I really can do anything I want.
… that what I’m eating has no calories.
… that I’m James Bond.
… Are you kidding? I make everyone look.
… I’m singing in front of thousands of people. And they love me.
… I’m alive.
… I still have the baby I gave away. My baby.
… that I am you.
… I’m British.
… I’m under water. And I can breathe. And I can stay here forever.
… I’m a conductor. And it all makes sense.
… I’m five years old. Playing with blocks. Happy.
… that I am a woman.
… I don’t pretend. I dance everywhere.
… that I am the version of myself that I always dreamed I’d be.
… I’m Baryshnikov.
… that someone is secretly watching me. Spying on me. I pretend not to notice so they can keep watching.
… I’m pregnant. I just walk around, pretending, with my hand on my belly.
