Supermarkets and Muddy Puddles
What have Supermarkets got to do with muddy puddles I hear you all asking?
Well…….Quite a LOT… if you live in my head actually! Let me explain……
As an aspie one place I hate the most is the supermarket. Everything is SO confusing, I can never find anything so I get flustered.
The fluorescent tube lighting then starts to flicker, I mean I can actually see the lights flickering.
Do any other aspies get that?
Then there is the awful choice of supermarket music that always seems to hiss in my head.
With worse still the adverts and announcements over the top….that I find slightly deafening.
To top ALL of this confusion… is trying to avoid all the many people and their ramming trolleys.
…………Errrrrrgggh it’s just a nightmare. It’s far too much to take in all at once.
I gave up on large supermarket a while ago and just decided it was easier to go to the Co-op.
This is a smaller British supermarket that really only ever has OAP’s and aspies in it…I’m sure of this…hehehe
So when I go shopping at the Co-op, I can actually enjoy the experience. They play pleasant music that me and the kids enjoy dancing along to and very often singing as well. When *AJ Comes with us he will scoot up and down the aisles on the trolley, because the shop is almost empty. While *CAL enjoys spinning around skipping happily and throwing the shopping at the trolley as it flies past.
I just had a thought…I should get them to go next time in their Carrot and Banana costumes, can you imagine that.
A dancing Carrot and a scooting Banana….I’m just giggling my head off.
Anyway……Onto Muddy Puddles!
Do I really need to explain muddy puddles, they are just SO much fun.
When it’s tipping down with rain and you put your wellies on, is there really any better fun than jumping up and down in a muddy puddle.
Or is this just me, my kids and Peppa Pig???
I personally think that secretly… way down deep, everyone would love to dance in the supermarket and jump up and down in muddy puddles.
I could be totally wrong, and sounding like a loon….. but I don’t think I am!!!
WRONG OR A LOON THAT IS!
This morning I didn’t really feel my full self, I was feeling quite down.
Arrrrr…what was wrong Lisa???……… you’re all asking because you all love me so much…
Then I remembered something!!!
And…….. it’s something you are ALL going to get really sick of hearing me say.
YES…here we go again…….!
“I am Aspie-Happy, I am a multi coloured Rainbow and I turn negativity upside down!”
I also like dancing in supermarkets and jumping in muddy puddles….hehehe
So here is a poem that I wrote for my friend that has also helped me today.
Supermarkets and Muddy Puddles
So do we really, really care, what people think of us
They look… they stare… they have a glare
But really given half the chance
Wouldn’t they just love to dance
Around the supermarket
God gave us joy deep in our hearts
So we can make a brand new start
And leave behind the worldly part
And…JUMP IN MUDDY PUDDLES….Woooo-hoooo!!!
So come on Lisa….His love is true
He keeps on writing poems for you
And…making SURE that they get through
So you can just be YOU! XXXX
And, here is a video just because I like it and I think you will too. x
