Ninja Chick

Okay, some of you have been reading me for years, and through reading my drivel for years, you may think you have come to know me. And you have seen a side of me, to be sure. But if you pass me in the produce isle of your local supermarket, I doubt you would recognize me. If we chatted in the waiting room of the local clinic, you would not say, "She reminds me of Leesa."

I started this blog to work on my writing, but I also needed an outlet to write the crazy ass stuff that I have in my brain. And those who know me at work, don't get to see that stuff. In fact, my husband sees it infrequently as well. Maybe that is his loss; I don't know.

I don't envy people with multiple personalities (or now, dissociative identity disorder), but occasionally it would be really cool to take on another personality. Occasionally, I would want to be someone else. For instance, I would want to be ninja chick.

Now, I am not talking old school ninja. A few months ago, I was staying overnight in a hotel, and there was a show on cable. Discovery, History Channel type of show. It talked about the early ninjas. I think they were monks or something. And I am not angling at being a clergy person with a bad 'tude.

I want to be a ninja who doesn't take anything from anyone. Postman is too slow at the post office, and I bust some cool ninja move. Yeah, speed things up, and don't ask me if I want any stamps!

At the 15-items-or-less check-out line, putting a little fear in the middle-aged man who thinks his 25 items and his time is a bit more valuable than the woman behind him with two screaming children and the carton of milk and sugar cereal.

At the movie theater, I would do a little karate chop to the neck of the 6' 2" guy with the cowboy hat that he won't take off. Hi-yah! Take that from the ninja chick.

Pardon me, I have had a bit more caffeine than I normally do on a Friday. We ninja chicks sometimes roll that way.

Took a vivarian with a Jolt cola followed up by three Red Bulls?

larry: something like that.

grant: long time, no hear. Guess I should just post pictures of cute Japanese women to get you to comment.

Lol, goof. My alter ego would be the female version of the guy on Burn Notice. That guy rocks.

You do it Leesa Ninja Chick. I know you could or you're not the Leesa I know and love.

I always thought MPD ( multi personality disorder ) as well as schizophrenia were fascinating disorders.

Maybe you could be a ninja of love. Or just Terry Tate Office Linebacker.

MPD is a talent, not a disorder. I have 20 and use them wisely.

Is your Ninja girl Asian at least? Grant will wanna know! ;)

Leesa said...

kathi: Yeah, he is pretty cool. Nice heart and a bad ass.

ian: thanks, sweetie.

knot: I think they are fascinating as long as you are not having to deal with them personally.

~deb: I don't see myself as Asian. Not exotic enough for that.

Too funny! I remember years ago you said that you started this blog to work on your writing, but I have always thought that you are one of the best writers in blogdom.

You've always been funny & talented, and I'm glad to hear that you developed super ninja powers while I was away too. Awesome! LOL
