last name EVER, first name GREATEST

I love writing because it’s impossible, at least for me, to take myself seriously when writing random thoughts. Next time I’m at a function that requires me to wear a nametag that is what I’m going to write… Hello, my name is GREATEST. Ohh the looks and questions that would come, but then again, in this day and age when people are named after numbers, shoes, animals and magazines, GREATEST may seem a trite dull. I humorously mentioned to my husband that I wanted to be THAT person, who when conversations turned to events, adventures, etc., I would be the person to say, DID THAT! It actually came from some rap song where the rapper sings diiiidddd thaaaatt. My husband said I wanted to be a topper, you know, that person who tries to one-up you and I guess that may be what it is, but for me, it’s more about the look of surprise and utter astonishment that I would probably get from people. See, I don’t look like the adventurous type. I don’t and I know it, which is why I’m embarking on my DID THAT journey. It’s my version of a bucket list and since I’ve never known anyone to die from or because of having kicked a bucket, my theory is B or B: Bust! Body or Bank Account: Bust – whichever one goes bust first. The rapper Eve bills herself as a pitbull in a skirt. Me, I’m more of a hybrid/crossbreed. A nail-polished, jewelry studded poodle with the heart of a human, strength of a Rhinoceros Beetle, tenacity of a Grizator (grizzly/gator) and Honey Badger. Take a minute to process that visual.  Point is, stop judging by what you see, but since we know that ain’t gonna happen, me and my DID THAT journey will continue. Try it. Next time somebody is talking about something they did or whatever, just say, DID THAT and watch their reaction. If you do it, let me know how it goes. As for me, I’m no topper or one-upper, not my style because I really don’t care about you or what you have because I already think I’m cooler than you – cue the song.
