The Things I Think of!!

I’ll be the first to admit that I come up with some pretty crazy ideas in my head. Weird things and questions wander into my head. Normally I keep them to myself but I’m drawing a blank on what to write about so I thought I’d share my crazy thoughts and questions I ponder with all of you. Hopefully at the end of this you all won’t think I’m insane!!

Okay Joy, you will know what I’m talking about here. There is this voice (no I’m not hearing voices don’t worry) that we have when we talk to our dogs. I’ve never heard ANYBODY talk to their dogs in this way. Our voice just changes. I learned this voice from Joy and Jason and now Bailey has this voice. It’s funny actually. So when we’re talking to our dogs like this what do you think THEY are thinking?? ” I’m a dog…not an idiot!!.” “Why are you talking to me in that weird voice?” I often wonder what they are thinking about. I wish I had the ability to know what they are thinking. Just one thing I often  ponder in my day.

Another is, why don’t you get goose pimples bumps on your face, hands or feet?? Or why do I love grapes but hate grape flavored things?  I often wonder if my dad (deceased) is watching me when I would rather not have him watch me. Do they get to choose when they’re looking over you?

That’s just a taste of what goes through my mind. I was talking about this with Jason last night and he said if he wrote a post about the things that goes through his mind it would scare all of you. I just think I think about weird things. Do any of you?? Or should I commit myself to the psych ward????

  1. Are you kidding? My entire day consists of thinking of weird things. Outside the box, baby!!!

    When I was younger I thought of the watching over thing… but now (thankfully) it seldom pops into my head. I figure, they should choose carefully who they are observing at any given moment or else they might get an eyeful. (Hey, the living have to live, right?)

    We don’t currently have any pets, but I have a weird baby voice (I use it on the older kids too, just for fun.) Most of the time I talk to babies just like anyone else, maybe use a few less big words, but sometimes I just wanna be silly so my voice gets all squeaky and weird. Makes them smile, what can I say.

    I’m stumped on the goose pimple thing.

    And hey, grape flavored stuff tastes like mouthwash gone bad, so don’t worry about that one.

    Just remember, you are not alone! 😉

    Please, do not commit yourself to the pysch ward b/c then we’d all have to follow you!! I think weird things too:) I like cherry flavored things, but do not like cherries. I don’t know about the goose bumps thing….

    The dog voice thing made me laugh b/c I thought it was so strange when I first met this family! I had dogs while growing up and I’m pretty sure we never talked to them with that special voice. They do get a kick out of it though!

    Yes, I do think people who have passed on are watching you and I think they choose, but we never know when that will be. Toby and I slept in my grandma (deceased) and grandpa’s bedroom this weekend and he’s trying to get a little, and I’m like we can’t do that this was my grandma’s room, don’t you think she might be watching??!!!! Sorry, not that you needed to know, but that’s what I was thinking!

    Oh Sue I’m LMAO!! That’s so funny about your grandmas bed. I would think the same thing!! I’m so relieved that I’m not the only one about the flavor thing. Like I love chicken but not chicken flavored food so much, like soup. I’m not alone…thank God!!

  4. Joy says:

    Sue, who gets a kick out of it, us or the dogs???? LOL!!

    Oh Nikki, I can’t believe you outed me on the animal voice. Do I really do that?? Yes, I know I do. I have no idea where it came from. Darryl does it too so it must have come from childhood somewhere. I remember when we went to the Black Hills and Sue’s sister Julie was staying here with Echo, she said “do I have to learn to speak Labrador?” I then knew, people knew….we were weird!!! Eee gads…. Oh well, it just comes out. Jason, Toby, Shane and Eric all do it too!!!

    The “flavor thing.” I do love fruit flavored things. Like orange, cherry and grape flavors but hate fruit in general. I think fruit is pretty but I don’t enjoy eating it.

    Sue, I can’t believe Toby wanted to get a little. It was probably you!! He would never do anything like that!!

    “I often wonder if my dad (deceased) is watching me when I would rather not have him watch me. ”

    My son-in-law, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in Feb 07 and my (then) two year old grandson were quite close.

    The first two months after my son-in-law’s death little Carter (on three different occassions) said, “Hey, Uncle Buddy, hey Uncle Buddy”. My daughter would ask him if he sees his Uncle Buddy. Little Carter’s response was always, “He right there, he right there.” pointing to where he sees him.

  6. Joy says:

    Wow mssc54, that’s chilling. Thanks for stopping by.

    You guys are just to funny!! I have a “voice” for my animals too. It’s not like a “baby” voice or anything but I have to use a calming one. You have to talk calm to cows and horses especially or they get nervous.

    If you believe people are looking down at you from above, you almost have to know they are able to “see it all.” Otherwise that theory is shot. I believe it I just choose not to think of it at times.

    I also hate grapes but it’s my favorite flavored drink and popsicle.

    I too like grapes but HATE grape flavoring in ANYTHING.. Can’t stand it.. its GROSS! I also will eat chicken but not anything chicken flavored..

    When Taylor was 11 months old my MIL(dh’s bio mom) passed away. For 2 years after she passed taylor would toddle to my back door and jabber at it all the time. She’d repeat Granny over and over again just a jabbering.. My back door is where my MIL used to stand to smoke since we don’t allow smoking in our house.. Then as she got older when she’d get into trouble she’d go to her room and start talking (telling on us) to someone.. When asked who she was talking to she’d always say “granny”

    Oh thank God Tosha!! Are you my twin???

    I have a continuous talkie movie running through my mind all the time, including commercials. It never, ever stops. I am constantly talking to myself about everything you can imagine and then some. One of the things I wonder is if, someday, I will suddenly start saying all these things out loud and end up committed to the looney bin. There is never one second when my thoughts are “blank.” Most of the time, I’m trying to mentally figure stuff out – the whys of how nature and physics work, what motivates people, how much of the holy books I should take “literally,” how things are going to turn out based on the trend of events, what would happen if we mixed X and Y and heated it to Z degrees, whether the origin of a certain word has any relation to that of another word. And whether or not I’m moral and what circumstances in my life led to certain of my traits. I develop educational curricula and new alphabets in my mind. When I was younger, I used to write whole novels in my mind. I’d go to sleep and pick up where I left off the next day for weeks. I’d relive every second that led up to an event and end up memorizing it for posterity.

    I have a friend who says she usually isn’t thinking anything at all. If she’s quiet, there’s probably nothing going on in her mind. I just can’t imagine that. Before she told me that, I would have thought such a thing was impossible.

    My cousin’s children, who are 1.5 and 3.5yrs, have “talked” to Grandma Choo Choo since she has been gone. Yes, same grandma whose bed I slept in this weekend so I know she’s there!!!

  12. nikki says:

    Yea SKL I can’t imagine NOT thinking. My mind is ALWAYS racing. Even when I’m completely relaxed…my mind…never!!

  13. Mimi says:

    Pets and babies! Hey, if you want them to listen you have to ‘zone in’, right?!

    And then you get to hear that voice when you have home movies taken, don’t recognize yourself and start to re-think the voice. Until the next time you are talking to your pet or a baby, then it comes right back out again!
