But inside, I’m going, ‘Oh my God, is my zipper up? Do I have a booger in my nose?’ That’s my inner monologue.

  3. Oh my goodness this quote is hilarious! 😀

    I had this very thought, is my zipper up, when I walked into a room to meet with friends today. Perfect timing on this post!!

  4. LOL! Oh how we worry about what might embarass us most. Thanks for the laughs, supremely bended one.

      oh yes! Sometimes it’s due to past embarrassing experience that we got so paranoid that it will happen again. That’s how it was to me when I felt embarrassed by a PE teacher’s remark and my classmates laughed. But now I learned to laugh about it — indeed I was like a bunch of coconut when I tried tumbling and failed to roll! lol

      It’s great laughing with you! 🙂

  5. LOL! Our inner monologue…I call it my inside voice, other personality…cuz you know I have many and not afraid to admit it. Today, I am a bad azz chic who is invincible, tomorrow I will probably be a geek studying for the bar exam. lol None-the-less, we all have a bit of insecurity going on with us throughout the day….good thing it’s our inside voice because, again not everyone can handle your booger, much-less be kind enough to warn you that it’s hanging before you face another person. It’s not like some people were born without them 🙂

    Thanks for the laugh and invoking thoughts!

      Ahaha!go go! go for that lawyer talk until you are reminded that you have the right to remain silent. lol.

      I plead guilty to not warning somebody that his booger was out but I changed already — I now got the courage to say, “uh there’s a dirt in your nose” or “in your eyes”. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to be kind but it’s easier than guilt.

      Thank you so much Treasure for sharing your thoughts — I always appreciate it!

    haha..those two questions are always floating around my mind…and this one: Am I talking to myself out loud again coz people are starring again 😀

    • bendedspoon Says:

      ahaha! They are staring at you because they wish they can. lol. This morning I did 15 rounds of walking in the park. Each time I completed a round I said, “God loves me. I love Him. I am healthy, wealthy (in so many ways), positive and happy!” In the last few rounds I said it loud in gratefulness. Some stared at me and must have thought, “What the heaven is going on?” I just smiled because I know what is going on!

      Here’s to talking more to ourselves positively!

    i do get that kind of inner monologue at times.. and sometimes, it’s even worse. 😀

    I wonder … 🙂

    I hear men have a ‘Nothing Box’ – I guess that’s where they are when we’re sorting through all our other ‘boxes’

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Oh yes that nothing box! My hubby and I watched the full version of Mark Gungor’s Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage and we had a good laugh from start to end!

    I LOVE Leah Remini…she’s the reason I watch The Talk! 🙂 Thanks for posting this great quote of hers…I’d love to have her for my bff…she tells it like it is! 🙂

    I feel happy for her that this is the only inner monologue! Mine seems to be more like a Shakespearean play being acted out all day long! Lol

    Take care Alan

    • bendedspoon Says:

      ahaha! Really, you too?! And what could be going on in your mind when you excel in the things you do? Wait, what’s that in your nose? lol

  11. Debbie Says:

    I think I should maybe have that inner monologue at times . . .to save myself some embarrassment. ha! Good thing God gave me a sense of humor, so I can laugh at myself! (and go get a tissue)

    • bendedspoon Says:

      ahaha! oh how I love you Deb! That inner monologue is not good at all. I once fainted in church because of that and was about to faint again in my school audition — good thing the judge called me to step out because I’m not qualified. lol.

  12. Jacqueline DeWylde Says:

    Isn’t it funny how we torture ourselves sometimes? I once read somewhere that most of our fears are tisue paper thin and a single courageous step will carry us right through them. I forget that a lot. LOL. Have a blessed day!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      I was once sooo like that! And now thank you for mentioning the word ‘torture’ — ugghhh how can one be so bad? From now on I’ll be a little kinder to myself. lol.

      Just tissue paper thin? Oh my, how could I have scared myself with that? Now it’s about time to wipe that fear! May God help me remember always or is it may I remember God always?

      Thank you, I’m so blessed today thus I’m sharing it with you!

  13. Me, too. It is so noisy in my head when I appear to be quiet. It makes me so awkward in crowds! 🙂

      Women never rest even when they seem to be at rest. It’s either they are loving themselves or others. It’s seldom that they don’t care, I think.
