See through my eyes…

I got a phone call and he called me a Jerk. I later got a message and was called a misleading person. Later that day I went to work and was called an asshole, but I started mentioning the benefits of being one. They didn’t appreciate the humor.

I went for a walk, the weather was improving. I had a lot on my mind. I was trying to decide whether I was an asshole or a jerk. Big difference. I then went to the supermarket to buy some raisins but I figured I’d try to dehydrate fresh grapes and see what comes out the other side. As I dehydrated the grapes, I was also told that I’m wrong. How dare I dehydrate grapes? I then took two dry grapes and shoved it down their mouths. “Eww, what is this? ” . I had one and it was juicy and I just thought that I did a good thing and I think I beat inflation too. I took my dried grapes to work and put it outside in the open for others to have. They asked me where did I buy these amazing raisins from?. I wasn’t sure if they were messing with me.

I then installed my smoothie stall at a bazaar and had made so much green smoothie that I was worried it would have to be thrown out.smoothie stall A customer came by and asked for a smoothie and wanted to know my recommendation. Knowing it had spinach and lettuce in it, I said to her lemon w/mint. She drank it and said “Wow, this is good “. I then told her ‘Its spinach, lettuce, pineapple, cinnamon and bananas. She walked away and came back a little later and said “I’m sorry can I have something else, I just can’t handle the spinach. It tastes like grass, I just can’t take it” .

With all the situations above I struggled and tried very hard to explain myself. No, I’m not an asshole, maybe a jerk, but no not a jerk either okay. I didn’t mean for you to see it this way. But these are raisins and they’re home-made from fresh grapes. But it’s good for you and tastes delicious, you didn’t even feel the spinach and lettuce, until I mentioned. But wait,come back!!!

It was all false hope until someone came back and told me she believed the smoothie was good for her and she wants to buy 5. I later got a call from my colleagues at work and she said I was only an asshole and not a jerk. A family member was impressed with how I made home-made raisins that were juicier, tastier and cheaper too.

I stopped explaining why I may be an asshole but not a jerk. I stopped telling everyone the green smoothie was good for them and I wanted to get rid of it before it goes bad. The few who came back told me that they see it. We then all stood together and handed each other a pair of eyes and began to see more and more of what we are. When I was done, I returned the lenses and wanted mine back. I nearly slapped the person next to me but just before I touched the cheek, I remembered that those aren’t his lenses anymore and I was looking through my own lenses. I put down my hand and slowly walked away knowing that we don’t see things as they are but as we are.  I then went home and had a goodnight’s sleep knowing that I have people to share eyes with and those will be enough till the end of time. It was sad but refreshing. I wanted so many more eyes. I bought a pair of glasses and that was as far as I could go with the eyes. I stopped explaining to everyone why they should see it as I do. It’s hard and I don’t expect to see it how they do. And I fell asleep with 2 extra pair of eyes.
