This isn’t a good sign. I had to research writing topics for today’s journal entry. Shouldn’t I be loaded with them right now? I’m only in the middle of the first month of this Journal 365 project I created!
Either way, I found a good idea. When I say good, I mean it’s really weird. Weird is good in my book. The writing prompt said, “Share a secret about yourself.”
After I say hello to someone or wave to someone, when they are gone, I replay my “hello” to see if I sounded weird.
Like, say I’m walking from the lunchroom back up stairs to my classroom (I’m a teacher). The Principal or another teacher might pass me and say, “Hello, Mr. T.” I’ll respond with a wave and say, “Hi there,” or something to that effect. Once I’m up the stairs, I look around to make sure no one is near, and then wave again and say “Hi there.”
That’s my weird secret. I replay my greetings to people.
Now that I think about it, I usually think I sound awkward when I’m saying hello to someone as I walk up the stairs. It’s hard to go up or down stairs and say hello. I’m not good at multitasking. Maybe I should wait until I’m on flat ground to respond to their hello. No. That would be even weirder.
