It sounds ridiculous … CRAZY … to make a blog about being normal, but sometimes I feel, and I am sure I am not the only one, that we are living in an “abnormally NUTZ” society.
What is the definition of NORMAL:
As per Merriam Webster On line dictionary
“not deviating from a norm, rule or principle, conforming to a type, standard or regular pattern; free from mental disorder…Sane
Synonym is Regular.” I am just regular ….
Let me give you an example, I came in the States with my son, 10 years ago, at the time he was only 9 years old.
I recently became a Citizen, I was able to file for my son, so he can become a Permanent Resident ; After all, he grew up here, went to school and got his High School Diploma in the USA. I thought it would just be a “formality”
I filled out the information, they register him as a resident and it’s done!!! THAT WOULD BE A NORMAL PROCEDURE IN A NORMAL WORLD!.
WRONG! This is not happening!
There was an interview that took more than 6 months to get … I had to bring all kinds of documents and justifications. Unfortunately I was missing 1 document, guess what…My son’s residency was denied! Now I have to re-apply, with a lawyer this time, so I can make sure (at least I hope) that my son will get his residency. It cost me Time, a lot of money and so much stress!!! AND ME THE MOM IS A CITIZEN!!!!
I am normal! R U
I am in line at a supermarket … my credit card in my hand, ready to put my stuff on the counter, pay and get out of here, (don’t know about you) but, I have better things in my life to do than to spend my time in a supermarket … LOL … But, in front of me … the people DO NOT have their money or card ready, they’ve got all kinds of things, all kinds of questions … Hello … it is just FOOD!!! and … all kinds of stories to tell to the cashier. THEIR NEW BEST FRIEND …. .. It’s even CRAZIER when you are in the 12 items line and THEY have a full cart just in front of you but the cashier takes them anyway….
The world is insane … what is up is down and what is out is in …
I am Normal … I am NOBLE … I CARE
ARE U ???? DO U ???
WRITE ME YOUR NORMAL :::: INSANITY
Bring me your CRAZY … NUTTY stories …
IS INSANITY now the rule ???
Has the normal, respectful world been reduced to REGULAR???? ARE WE INVISIBLE ??? DO WE EXIST ??? DO WE COUNT ??? Does anyone care ???
