If I could have any superpower I think I would go with the ability to read minds. This would be the case only on the condition that I could control it–I definitely wouldn’t be down with a What Women Want situation.
Often, I find myself thinking about either totally inappropriate or unrelated thoughts–or both–at various times and it makes me wonder what everyone else I encounter is hiding in their noggin.
There is such an infinate amount of subjects available for pondering, some more worthy of thought than others. It has become almost a game for me to purposefully think about things that would potentially offend or weird out the people I am around.
I honed this skill when working at Flying Star because my outlet deaing with the annoying customers as I took their salad back to the kitchen, passing the line out the door and screaming children dousing the floor with ketchup, for not having enough lettuce. I would honestly just say horrible and petty things about them in my head repeatedly–yeah lady, my smile wasn’t the result of the pure joy I experience from being given the opportunity to serve you.
I was thinking of what you would look like if you slipped on your extra lettuce, flew down the stairs, and landed in the lap of creepy bagel and hummus man.
Or, more likely, something substantially more evil that I feel too ashamed of to replicate in written form.
Long story short, next time you are in class–you have to wonder what your professor is thinking about. Freaky, I know.
