A Crime in Being Different?

Something happened today. Which taught me that maybe it isn't such a good idea to mix personal with professional.

I've never really thought of what the word "weird" could imply, until today when someone close was labelled such by a person who barely spent one week in contact with this someone. I'll be honest, I've used the term a thousand times on strangers and acquaintances, and I AM guilty of this frivolity.

But what makes a person seem "weird"? Is it because the person is different from you? Thinks differently? Looks different? Doesn't agree with your ethos? What? If it is any of the aforementioned, then you are "weird" for you are unable to adapt to diversity. No two individuals are identical in this world. Even the so-called identical twins have different fingerprints, DNA make up and appearance (result of environmental interactions).

So if cookie cutter human who needs to be in the "in crowd" all the time is what constitutes being a "normal" person, I'd rather be weird.
