Let's Be Weird Together
I smiled when I read a friend's Facebook status today:
"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." -Dr. Seuss
Oh, Dr. Seuss. He always knew the words to say and how to say them. This quote basically sums up exactly what I'd be looking for in a relationship: someone that has weirdness that intertwines with mine and we are completely content in our mutual weirdness. Sigh.
I think I'd like to discover that our weirdness is compatible before I even fall in love. I'd be content knowing that I can be as strange as I am (believe me, I am) around this other person, and they to their own degree are unique. It would be fantastic if we weren't afraid to flaunt that weirdness and understand each other while living in this weird, complicated world.
Wouldn't it be lovely.
