All my life I’ve been a good little girl. I did as my parents told me. Never got in any trouble. Didn’t drink, smoke or do drugs. And if you believe any of that I have a gorgeous shack I could sell you in the swamps.
Why be good when being bad is so much fun. Right? Life would be so dull if we stuck to the rules and never did anything outside the norm. Think about it. We might as well be robots. Life is too short to waste it being good all the time. There is so much stress in our lives so it’s nice just to throw away all the worries and have a little fun. You work all day, doing as you’re told, bring in the money. Or you’re home all day taking care of the kiddies, cleaning the house, changing poopy diapers and making sure the meal is planned out and ready. You do this day after day and you start to go a little crazy. Don’t deny it. We’ve all been there. And that is why its fun to step out of the professional/good mommy role and do something fun.
But where to start?
Take a part time evening job as a stripper. Nothing like throwing caution to the wind and letting it all hang out.
Run through the streets naked.
Again, there is that property in the swamp I can sell you.
Seriously though. Having fun doesn’t mean being arrested or shaking it all for the world to see. But doing something different once and a while is fun too. Join a murder mystery club. Roll play as someone else and live their life if only for a few hours. Or, pick a different club or coffee shop each week to try out. Go skinny dipping in the lake at night when no one else is around. I’ve heard people say starting a flash mob is a hoot. I’ve never done this but it sure sounds like fun. That sort of thing. Something different to avoid going stark raving mad.
My favourite phrase comes courtesy of the Simpsons.
Homer: “All work and no play make Homer something something…”
Marge: “Go crazy?”
Homer. “Don’t mind if I do.”
Now you’re probably thinking that I’m all talk and no action. Well here are some examples of crazy daring things I’ve done in my life.
Flashing my boobs to passing cars. Mooning people. Walking down the street, beer bottle in hand, dancing and singing at the top of my lungs despite the cop car up a head. Making out in an open field.
Now those are a bit extreme, but they sure were a lot of fun at the time.
In my upcoming release, The Naughty Angel, I dip into the subject of stepping out of your comfort zone. Ariel Raine is an Angel looking for a bit of excitement. She knows its taboo to seek sex, but she’s tired of the same old same old and is willing to deal with the consequences. Being pared up with a demon is not what she had planned, but she soon learns being naughty is a hell of a lot more fun than being good.
Have you ever done anything out of the norm, even something a bit embarrassing? How did it make you feel? Would you do it again? Come on, spill the beans. J
