Recently I received a text message from a friend – Miss S – who I haven’t caught up with for a little while.
Miss S wrote that she misses talking nonsense with me and laughing about stupid things together.
Yeah, I must say I miss our nonsense chats very much too. Once in a while, Miss S and I will get together, not only to share our unpleasant experiences in life, but also to talk nonsense. Miss S and I can utter a stream of nonsense for hours and hours and never get sick of it.
Yes, I admit that it could be a very painful experience for those who may unfortunately overhear our conversations, but for Miss S and I, it is quite an entertaining and relaxing activity. It is like temporarily escaping to the world full of childish fantasy where the burdens of our conventional everyday life are lifted.
Once Miss S and I transcend our consciousness to our conversational world, we are at ease and relaxed, we calm our muscles and nerves, we let creativity flows in our minds, and let loose our untamed tongues.
We imagine being in our exclusive preposterous world. We can talk as stupidly as we want, we do not have to maintain our “serious” and “professional” appearance as we do at work or in some other social occasions where there are some not-so close friends or strangers present.
We can talk like children and be silly and laugh until tears literally roll down from our eyes. We let our imagination run wild as the conversation goes. It feels like being in Alice in Wonderland.
We live out our childish fantasy in our conversation. We discuss about our silly thoughts and absurd ideas in details even though we both know these imaginary actions will never carry out in reality because they are simply too crazy.
As Lewis Carroll beautifully wrote in Alice in Wonderland,
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
Once our get together is over, Miss S and I then return to reality as well as our sanity.
One of the privileges of having a close friend like Miss S is that one can talk nonsense freely without worrying about being judged for sounding stupid. ;P
Thank you for being my friend, Miss S.
Anyway, enough written for now.
I shall to get back to the real world and write back to Miss S to arrange a catch-up.
