Do you wanna piece of "Smee"?
My mind wonders every now and then. Truthfully, it is rare that my mind is not wondering off somewhere in the distance. I have always hoped that it is a sign of brilliance or super creativity. Brilliance and creativity that is currently dormant, but will soon burst out and clean my house spotless, organize my crap or complete a project - any project!
I am also one of those people who will burst out in song for no apparent reason. I am one of those people you see on the freeway singing at the top of their lungs to the radio. Sometimes I catch myself, blush a little, then try to make it look like I was on my cell phone or talking to (yelling at) my kids, if they are in the car. Often times, sitting at my desk, at work, I will start singing. I will look across the hall into the other office, watching & waiting for the moment the ladies can hear me. Then I laugh and start all over!
Today, my mind is wondering to a little appreciated character from Peter Pan - Mr. Smee. He is truly my favorite part of Peter Pan. He is so cute and round. So eager to please his hot tempered 'Captain'. Maybe it is the way his little belly pokes out of his striped shirt? Maybe it is how he wants so much to be appreciated by 'Captain Hook'? Maybe it is because he is struggling to be a 'Nice Guy' who became the self appointed angel on the shoulder of evil? For whatever reason - I like him.
