water: normality vs. fantasy vs. nonsense

Most days (I've absent-mindlessly noticed), my thought process and general observations of things, people, feelings, etc., are somewhat expressed in a one-way interview format. I am not sure if this is a normal thing, or if I have multiple personalities, constantly talking to myself as other people.  

Wow. I cannot believe that you really just knocked on my door and asked me to make my dog stop barking. You. My only neighbor. Who consistently takes my laundry out of the washer and puts it ON TOP of the dryer so you can start YOUR OWN load of laundry. You. You know what? I will make my dog stop barking when you make your crazy, psychotic cats stop running in your apartment, back and forth, back and forth, like they are training for the Ironman Triathalon. Are you serious? Make my dog stop barking. She will stop barking when YOU stop barking, ya old witch. 

And the thing is? My neighbor really is a sweetheart! 
Most days... 

Its almost as if I have a perpetual tape recorder in my mind, playing conversations that never have occurred. Is this normal? 
Do other people experience this as well??

I guess I just always want to be prepared to say the "right" thing when I am confronted?
Who knows. 

Oh the brain. What a curious, curious thing...

I remember my mother one time having a conversation with my sister in law, about always thinking. 
She just told my mother that when she is tired of thinking about something, she just turned her brain off. 
Mom and I still ponder this phenomenon to this day. 
HOW, exactly, do you turn your brain off?  

Which makes me think of that ago old tune from that age old musical based off that age old book. 
"If I Only Had a Brain"

And in closing, I leave you with a quote from my all time favorite, 
the incredible Dr. Seuss. 

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. 
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. 
It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. 
Which is what I do. 
And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
