And then I thought I was a fish... It's a story of a man who goes insane and comes back to real life. The story is a romance for the human mind and takes you far into the awareness of what it’s like to ponder our existence. For some reason, I've always been inspired by those who are a little crazy. And as they say, being a little crazy helps you from going insane. On the surface, there is nothing more normal than Jeremy and Amanda. They are successful, well-liked individuals, with big corporation employment who love their friends and family and Tito's and soda. They are the American dream. It was an unlikely friendship the moment Jeremy and I met. In a sense, we think on the opposite scale of most things. But it's that exact reason that made me know that he'd be a lifetime favorite friend of mine. Everything I think about in life came from this intuitive sense and Jeremy showed me the logical. We are an ideal balance. It’s a perfect bond and one I often reference in my every day life to this day.
Now we introduce Amanda - the yin to his yang. She had all the perfect fun and crazy I was always giving Jeremy but in a much more attractive package. Her crazy involves charcuterie plates that would put Spoon and Stable to shame, dress up days that can involve various mustachery and trucker caps (Yaaasss Queen)! What would a blog post be about best friends if you didn’t have one inside joke! Amanda has an idea, we all love it because it’s always a fun idea! Amanda can suggest anything and I’ll say we should all be in. Sign me up! The bonus being she’ll plan it too and bring snacks! I do crave and seek out the logical often in life. After all, life needs a balance. And as Jeremy says I often talk at 30,000 feet - “can you bring it down to 10,000 feet for me?” I certainly try.
I’ve learned we all crave our unique form of balance and that balance feels a bit crazy to me. I like the insanely logical and intellectual conversation and at the same time want to make fun of myself for taking life so seriously and just let go and joke, goof off, and be ridiculous. Love is crazy. It takes on a multitude of forms. It challenges us far past our tipping point and thus teaching us the perfect balance. I think this is exactly what makes it so sweet, so spectacular, so damn exciting. I embrace the crazy, we all should embrace a little more crazy in life. The crazier we get the more apt we are to find the perfect balance. And if all else fails, maybe some day you’ll think you’re a fish too.
