it\’s louder in your head.


the point.

Posted in Uncategorized by rdkaye on 17 February 2006

okay, so the title of this post is misleading. because i don’t actually know what the point is yet. i just know that a few weeks ago, i was at a group for budding young writers organized by some folks at my church, my friend was eating chex mix, and she declared it “the loudest food.” my response, “it’s louder in your head.” because, umm…, it is. sort of like how your voice sounds differently to you than to other people.

well, for some reason, i’ve been thinking about this a lot. especially after chutney wrote this post about embracing adolescence. and it made me think of this episode of my so-called life (one of the greatest TV shows of all time) where angela (claire danes’ character) talks about how sometimes in a conversation you say the wrong thing…or what seems like the wrong thing…and it repeats over and over again in your head. it’s all you can hear. and you only think of the right thing to say in the instant that it’s not possible anymore. or maybe a day or a year later. that totally happens to me.

anyway, yeah, it’s louder in your head. i guess that is the point.

so, the blog. all the cool kids are doing it. and i’ve decided that i live in my head too much. i can imagine myself talking about politics, religion, food, popular culture, sexuality, the meaning of life and marriage. and maybe grammar. we’ll see how it goes.

    Excellent! I can’t wait to see what you make of this creative outlet. It will be fun grumbling about grammar and other topics with you!
