Do you do weird and goofy things?

Of course you do, because everyone does weird and goofy things.

The person you’re with? Do they make fun of your weird and goofy things? Do they make you ashamed of your weird and goofy things? Do they make you want to stop doing your weird and goofy things?

Or do they start doing your weird and goofy things with you? Do they do their own variations on your weird and goofy things, not to make fun of you, but because they think your weird and goofy things are part of what makes you YOU, and they really enjoy the you that is you?

Does that person do weird and goofy things? Of course they do, because everyone does weird and goofy things.

But you don’t see them doing weird and goofy things, because when they do them, those things aren’t weird and goofy, it’s just them being them. And so you do those things along with them.

And when you’re both weird and goofy together, it all feels right, and it all fits, and together you don’t care what the world thinks of your weirdness and goofiness. Because together everything is perfect.
