Sometimes I Need An Explosion


I know that there's only a handful of people that will get that. Nod their heads in agreement.

Sometimes I desire something completely different. Explosively different. A change of pace. A wild-hair trip to see an old friend. A long night out drinking tequila with someone who can really carry on a great conversation.

Occasionally I want some strange, but not sex, just different experiences. Something I've never done before. Seen before. Something that's a rarity in my hands.

I'd like to fly out West to see my friend Jules. Hang out with her and see the lightening across the desert sky.

Or get in the car and drive to Chicago to see Dana and Toosie. I bet the three of us could stir up some fun. Swing by Arkansas and pick up Jay on the way.

I just get these wild hairs and I need an outlet. I need to do something to aleviate that stress that builds up. We used to move across the sea to a New World. But now everything seems so damn tame.

What I really need is to go to China with my uncle. THAT would fix it.

And I wonder if anyone else ever feels this way.....

i feel this way a lot, lately.

i'm going back to school in the spring. for now this is what i'm doing to assuage the feeling. sounds kinda odd, but just the thought is working for now, so i bet the real thing is gonna feel my need "for some strange" for a good long while.

Yeah, I get this same feeling sometimes too. Usually the feeling that I should just hop in the car and take off and just go. Somewhere. Anywhere. Some place I've never been before and just explore.

Every day.

Hell yeah girlfriend! I get to explode once a year when I go visit my family & friends back in the US...I LOVE IT! You just have to do something explosive once in a while! why the hell not?! :-)

LSL said...

Yes.

And, go to China!

Also, I wish I had her tits!

Akelamalu said...

Oh yes, something truly different every once in a while to stir the blood! Maybe you should go to China. ;)

Dana said...

... or I could get my CDL, buy my own rig, load Cam up and head across the country, stopping to meet bloggers along the way.

Yes ... I feel this way often ...

Micky-T said...

I used to explode two or three times a year. It's been pretty lame for the last four.
Maybe Phfrankie and I can get a spark out of you on the fourth, it's a full moon. I'll call you.

Beth said...

well, I find drinking coffee and acting manic satisfies me :)

Grant said...

Having dealt with real explosions in the Army, I highly recommend them. C-4 is fun. And you should definitely do the China thing. I think the memories will be irreplaceable.

: checks cleavage: hmmpph...

I want to travel. I'd like to quit my job and just travel. Either that or take 4 vacations a year, just far enough apart to start wanting to get away again and then BAM...just go. :)

Spiky Zora Jones said...

hi sweetie:I want to go from the fast pace to a different fast pace...one that is time comsuming and not filled with poeple tugging at me for something or another...I want to travel and justy keep going till I've had my fill...then I want to come back home and sleep on my bed.

I think I know how you feel...

Laura said...

I do....and it usually gets me in trouble!

Kay said...

Aye... when the seasons change, my desire for something NEW kicks into high gear.

Bond said...

As evidenced above we all get that wild hair...

My last big one took me from NJ to TN!

nitebyrd said...

Yes. All the time. I want to leave the everyday behind for something amazing.

Vodka Mom said...

dammit I'm in.

C said...

yes i have felt this restlessness and i go searching anywhere and everywhere, nearly desperately, only to find that all i needed all along was already in my life, right in front of my eyes. i need to be still and connect with it inside myself.... where all answers are.

...I call it "stirring the pot"...the pot must be stirred occasionally, to mix everything thoroughly...

we're doomed said...

You must have read my mind, RLL.

Bina said...

I feel this way every.single.day.

And man, you WOULD have a great time with Dana! You should actually do that when things settle down with her. She could certainly use the break.

Marsha said...

I suspect many of us feel that way, and frequently. I used to act on stuff like that when I was younger and wilder. Anymore? Well, not so much.

Lynette said...
