It’s time, once again, for Small talk Six! On Saturdays presented by MomDot.com. Today’s topic is 6 sure signs that you are stressed out. You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences. 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc…

Ok, this will be fun. I show stress in many different way depending on what is stressing me out. I am most definitely going over the 6 items on this one.

1) Even the smallest noise makes my teeth gnash and grates on my very last nerve.

2) I get overly sensitive about things meant in jest.

3) I crave chocolate chip cookie dough.

4) I cry at the drop of a hat.

5) I snap at everyone.

6) The Free Range Stupid seem to appear to me at every turn. In my inbox. At Target. Driving down the street….you get the picture. Sometimes it’s better just to stay home.

7) I have the overwhelming desire to bash someone over the head with a cast iron skillet. Even going so far as to gauge how well I can wield the bloody thing.

8 ) Nothing goes right for me and I have to perform tasks multiple times to get them done due to constant interruptions from The Diva, my Husband or my damn stupid mother fucking FireFox browser that cannot stay working for more than 5 minutes at a time and always crashes just as I am about to save or publish my work. Which means I will have to repeat the entire thing all over again. It makes me feel like I have ADD.

9) I know I have work to do. I know what needs to be done. But for some reason, my brain disconnects and the thought of actually performing the tasks to completion gives me such a sense of dread that I stare blankly at the computer screen or find myself easily distracted by the…ooh pretty. Is that silver? It’s so shiny and hypnotizing…

10) When Amanda tells me that I have reached my stupid quotient and I am the apostle for the stupid.

11) I don’t sleep because I have too much to do.

12) I gets the dumbs.

There you have it. I do not do well with abundant amounts of stress. Unfortunately I have a plethora of it right now.

Oh, joy.

And The Free Range Stupid are not helping the situation.

As my friend Deb says “I will be angry until the government makes it legal to kill The Free Range Stupid.”

Yeah that about sums it up.
