Assignment: Focus today’s post on the contrast between two things. The twist? Write the post in the form of a dialogue.
Me: “I hate these types of things. How the hell do I know what I am supposed to compare and contrast?!”
Self: “I suppose I could compare and contrast the ‘office’ me to the ‘home’ me…?
Me: “Does it really matter which one of us you use? Because we both talk to ourselves constantly.”
Self: “True enough. But work me is much more reserved than normal me.”
Me: “To a point. I mean, we were called the ‘voice of reason’ at a party just a few weeks ago.”
Self: “Shit. Forgot about that.”
Me: “No, you didn’t.”
Self: Sigh. “I know. It still smarts. It’s not like I want to be a total irresponsible party animal or anything…”
Me: ” I know. You just got tired of being invisible.”
Self: “Exactly! But, ‘home me’ definitely has some loud, obnoxious moments!”
Me: “But we both have trouble fitting in. Home or work.”
….and that is me in a nutshell. Square peg, round hole.
