Do You Worship Jesus, Buddha, or Tom Cruise?


“She looks at me, and we both laugh, and in the instant we are merely two women, standing over a lasagna, telling the truth.” –Jodi Picoult, Small Great Things

~ I’m the kind of person who is interested.

 

I want to know who you are, what you want from life, your passions, your failures, and if worship Jesus, Buddha, or Tom Cruise.

 

What kind of books do you read? Have you read Wild yet, Eat Pray Love, or To Kill a Mockingbird? Lolita? Do you sympathize with Madam Bovary as I do? Seriously, why wouldn’t you want her to live an authentic life? Tell me.

 

I want to know how many kids you have, your partner’s name, what kind of sugar cookies you bake for Christmas. Do you sprinkle the dough with those cute, little gold and silver balls?

 

It’s just my thing.

 

I’m the kind of person who will identify with you if you mention your flaws, weaknesses, your parenting regrets. For example, if you say, “My kid doesn’t give a rat’s ass about school, he’s definitely not on the Dean’s list, but he’s kind and compassionate,” I’ll probably get you.

 

I recall talking to a soccer mom once who said, “Oh, no, I don’t go to any of my son’s conferences any longer. I find it exhausting when the teachers’ keep telling me how brilliant he is.”

 

She and I shall NEVER go out for wine, shall never meet for deep conversation, shall never be allies.

 

I have this gage I go by, these sort of imaginary standards I list inside my head. When I encounter somebody new, I typically know within thirty minutes if we could have a glass of wine together. My close friends who know about this gage will ask, “Weeeeeell, would you go for wine with her?”

 

And it’s either a nope, aaaaabsolutely not, noooo way, Or OMMMMGGGG, I love, love, love her.

 

If you pull me to the side at work after a horrendous day dealing with unruly, unmanageable children and whisper in my ear, “F******CK,” I will immediately understand you, want to hug you, want to have a conversation about what spurs you forward.

 

If you confess you may be going madly insane after the death of your mother, father, child, or sister, that part of your soul is gone forever. I’ll probably take you by the hand, kiss you on the cheek, and tenderly say, “Me, too.”

 

Connection is beautiful.

 

It’s like an energy flowing from one heart to another. It’s like unfinished words colliding in midair.

 

It’s rare, this connection, this magnetic force, but when it happens, we bloom into more than who we were before. We grow fresh, colorful petals.

 

And we know we’re not alone in this colossal, crazy universe.

 

—–This blog was inspired by a woman I’ve talked to all year, who has NOT ONCE asked me about myself or my family. Thank you for being my special muse for this post. btw… we shall not be having wine together.

 

What about you? Are you interested in other people’s lives?

    I’m always interested and always listening and remembering (ask Michael- he thinks it’s pretty annoying!) but I have a hard time asking questions for fear of not saying things in the right way- so I usually just sit and wait and listen when other people ask the questions. Maybe that’s a good thing for me to work on to push me out of my comfort zone.
    Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your wine 🙂

    Not once? What did you talk about all year? Her? OMG it’s not ME is it??? I certainly hope not!!! You know my Alpha Hubby because you so faithfully comment when no one else does (but him). He can’t dance or sing but he has honor and integrity, far more important to me. My Alpha Son with his nice long beard loves Harley’s, looks kick butt and bad a$$ but has a tender heart, has always protected an underdog, and hated school. I was never going to have that bumper sticker, “My Child is an Honor Roll Student at LHS.” And you know what? I didn’t care because we have such a special relationship after 11 years before Alpha Hubby. I won’t pull you aside at work and whisper in my ear, “F******CK,” but I will send you a box of Godiva Chocolates & my love (I spent too long unlearning f*ck since eons ago I was a professional cusser, smile). Why? Because I do worship Jesus and that was important to me. I don’t care what others do or say. I care that they are brilliantly, achingly, lovingly, bluntly, terrifyingly, thrillingly, and kindly honest – JUST LIKE YOU!!!

      And about the F****CK. Somebody came up to me the other day and IT WAS SO OUT OF PLACE

        I would have laughed (snortingly), too! Irreverent is sometimes so delicious! Most of my relationships are like what you described – sad, isn’t it? I had a boss who was so confident she knew me she gave me a personality test and was blown away that I wasn’t what she thought. Well, duh. Kinda been doing that to people all my life. I can honestly say 99% people don’t really know me – Alpha Hubby does, 100%. He says it is because I don’t share my innermost thoughts, at all. He’s pretty smart. Smile!! You are #1 sweetheart, my e-friend!

    I am most definitely interested, however, I would have to know them pretty well to ask.
    Not at all because I’m not interested, but because I have this fear of being intrusive.
    It’s a fine line to walk.

    I am an introvert and there are walls Ive built around myself because of hurt. So my circle is very very very small.

    I am so interested in other people and how they relate to things and cope with things, etc. I always hope to learn from them something that maybe I don’t know. My kids constantly tell me I ask too many questions and so does my husband. I’m not being nosy, I am just curious what makes other people tick. Kim, I know several people where the conversations are all about them. One sided conversations. I have learned to ditch people like that. Not interested. Life is give and take. It’s gotta work both ways. I don’t drink wine but I’ll have a café mocha with you!

    What a GOOD person you are, Kim, for taking inspiration even from somebody you don’t want to drink wine with! To answer your question, YES, I’m definitely interested in other people. I always assumed it was because I’m a writer, but perhaps it’s just that no two of us — no matter how close — are alike, and that’s fascinating. To say our Creator threw away the mold when He made us is awe-inspiring.

    Will you judge me harshly if I confess my sister and I haven’t spoken in THREE years?? I pray for her every single day, but I just can’t be around her. She said some horrid things to me on the phone, then hung up — and I’ve never felt the impetus to make amends. Nor, apparently, has she. How can you forgive someone who’s not sorry, who refuses to apologize? I have to remind myself that some people are toxic and I have to keep my distance (which isn’t hard when she’s keeping hers, too). There, now I’m truly naked on the page! xo

    I am a Child of God who comes from a dysfunctional family. I have a strained relationship with my mom who will never change, and a father who has protected her. Most people consider them good people, and I’m totally cool with that. My problem isn’t there problem, and I don’t like to bad mouth my parents so I’m very limited in what I disclose.

    I consider people who have good parents very privileged and I’m happy for them.

    My brother who was once a criminal, is someone I can talk to. He gets my feelings and if I need to bounce something off him about an irritating encounter I had with my mom he listens and the dialogue is therapeutic. When we end our conversation he always tells me he loves me and I tell him I love him.

    My husband never really understood what it was like for me to be on the other side of my mom until after we were married. We went to visit my parents one day and she let her true colors show and my husband then had a clear picture of who she was. He was like WOW!

    My husband once asked me how I’d feel if my mom died, and I shrugged and said I don’t know. I don’t know what I’ve missed. All I have to think about is the next life. The one in Heaven where I know we’ll both be and I have this assurance. Perhaps we’ll have a relationship that is normal; void of dysfunctional obstacles.

    So now you know I worship Jesus. I do not believe in new age religion. It will not give a person access to God’s kingdom. I’m a very black and white person and I’m easily annoyed by people who display cognitive dissonance.

    I’m a realist I think because I was raised with lies, cover ups, and deep deep shame. I embrace logic. I read nonfiction writings that explain true History, and I keep much of it to myself because the average person would be angry at me for exposing it. But that’s okay. I don’t fault people for that. I think it’s normal for people to hug what they believe because it’s their comfort zone and maybe one day they will see. But it’s not up to me to decide that. It’s called denial and I’ve been there. It’s a security blanket that keeps us safe until we’re ready to see the light.

    I also read in addition to the Bible, Christian self help books.

    My passions are writing, creativity with art, decorating, and teaching young children arts/crafts. I love to have my pastor’s children over and see what they can learn and watch their faces light up when I teach them something new.

    I’m passionate about people who have a volition for justice and I’m a Trey Gowdy fan. I’m part of his like page and I communicate with others who are into discussing current events. I LOVE Trey Gowdy. I love his grown up boy scout well mannered disposition. But he is very intact and you cannot get past his strong line of intelligent questioning.

    On another note, I belong to black cat appreciation group. A group of people who share black kitty boasts and other kitties too. Rescue kitties of all sorts weather feral or house cats. So my fb posts probably show both sides of me. a soft side and a serious side.

    I think that people typically see a soft person when they meet me and make a judgement about me because i like to joke, I like to make children laugh, I like to be silly.

    So when people catch a glimpse of my serious side I wonder if they are caught off guard. But oh well, I am who I am, take or leave it.

    Enjoy your wine!

    Blessings,

    Little Chickie

    I like to read fiction that is heartwarming and funny or a real good mystery that draws me in as if there is music in the background even if there is no music. Books that have sentences that create awesome imagery.

    Re: non fiction I like to read books about real life situations. People who have survived tragedies. As an example, Stolen Innocence about Elissa Wall escaping the evil tribe of Warren Jeff’s polygamous community. She is a hero. She has helped other women escape what she went through. She could have just said I’m free now, I don’t have to look back but she remained and helped others come over to her sanctuary.

    Here is a piece of me from this morning and something about the man I love, my husband of 35 years:

    I read a text message from my brother with some not so good news about my mom’s health just as my husband backed the Chevy out of the garage and onto the driveway at 6:48 a.m. today. I flung open the kitchen door and raced into the garage, hoping he would notice me in my slippers, ragged t-shirt and draw string pj pants flailing my arms to get his attention. He stopped the car, rolled down the window and I stood there barely able to speak. I delivered my message, turned and headed back to the house in the freezing cold. Then he put the car in park, stepped out and followed me into the kitchen to give me a hug as tears threatened. Later he texted to ask if I’d seen the beautiful sunrise.

    It was a beautiful moment during a difficult moment.

    You are a beautiful moment in my life, too, dear Kim. I admire your strength, your words, your compassion, your courage, your desire to be honest and tell it like it is. I love how you love your Kay, how you continue to be her voice. I love how you love your big Italian family and those boys of yours too far moved away. I love how you write, what you say and how you encourage so many. You are incredible!

    Your words are so beautiful, Kim. I can’t imagine knowing someone for a whole year and not once asking them anything personal. I also like to know about people; what they like, what really gets under their skin, fears, tears…I think we do that with our blogging.

    There is another factor which my sister taught me, when it comes to knowing if I will really get along well with someone or more importantly, want to “chill” ( that would the wine) with them, and that is “does the person like animals?” Her theory is, do not trust anyone that does NOT. And ya know? It works every time!

    Sometimes I like to listen and get a feel from someone before I open up or ask them to. I can also smell BS a mile away and at this point in my life I no longer have the time or patience for it. I have family members who think the sun rises and sets on them and chatter non-stop about where they’ve been, done, seen and accomplished and they work my last nerve. Just because we share the same DNA doesn’t mean I want to listen to you tell me how great you are.

    I guess I like to hear the truth which is very rare when you watch the news how the main stream media tells it the way they want not the way it is. Most of our senators and congress people don’t know how to the truth. I do agree with Annette about Trey Gowdy, I think he is a breath of fresh air.

    I have read all three books…Eat Pray Love, To Kill a Mockingbird and Lolita and liked them though they are so different from each other. I am very choosy about books too!

I LOVED this- it speaks to your heart and how it oozes on everyone who comes near you. And your wisdom to know the people who are not worthy of your time with wine. 🙂

    Thank you for always shining new parts of your soul with us all, love. It’s always a remarkable experience to take it in, soak in it, and revel in your light. <3

      Chris,
      We’d have LOTS to talk about, darling.
      I’ve noticed that all of my truly good friends, we’ve always talked
      about DEEP things, which matter.
      I like that. xxx

    Oh what a post dearest Kim. One that speaks to me so well. I’ve been away, I love when I come back to a perfectly thoughtful post like this. I have missed you.
    I want to know everything, but gradually. Friendship must be built – layer upon layer. I like a conversation face to face. I want to listen, really hear but also hope they hear me not dominate the conversation as many I know tend to do, I understand their need to be heard however. I do know right away if the relationship has no place to go. I am an introvert, I do not want many friends and can count the ones that really know me. I lend my heart to many; Neighbors, parents at my kids classes, a person on the street. I will always be kind and welcoming. I am always willing to hear, I am NOT willing to be taken for granted. I don’t want small talk. I want to know what makes a person tick, what you read is important to a bookaholic like me. If you like chocolate, wine or even a margarita and old movies, fabulous. Most importantly though, it is the ability to laugh that matters; a roaring, happy, raucous laugh. It is the ability to cry and hold a hand that gets me everytime.

    Thank you for your truth and passion. Love your wisdom xxx

    This is a beautiful post. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what makes me tick as a writer and as a human in general. I love to ask questions. I am very curious with those I am closest too. Most often, people bloom when another soul shows genuine interest in them and their story. That is priceless.

    My daughter doesn’t give a rat’s ass about school, my greatest hope is that she’ll actually graduate high school, but she’s kind and compassionate and will fight for the underdog every. single. time.

    Can we have wine now?

    In all seriousness, I love this post and love you and how you love connecting with people. I love your love of words, your love of family, your love of your internet friends (and your love of wine). You make this world a better place. Keep sharing your truth.

    And yes, life is too short to have wine with assholes.

    You give people 30 minutes??? Woah, I usually know in about 10 minutes if I could do wine time with them. Hmmm, I better add some time to my bull shit radar to be absolutely sure. Ha.

    Because of you, my relationship with a handsome (swoon worthy) helicopter pilot I’ve been seeing for a month now is working. I made a pact with myself to be real like you, I ask the hard questions, the silly questions, all of the questions. And… I am falling in love with this person because of it. So thank you, thank you for the reminder to always speak the truth, I am becoming a better person for it.

    PS: I worship Ryan Reynolds. 🙂
