Today's article is about my lack of being able to adapt to other people. What does that mean?Going back to when I was a child, and even now probably, I would want to do whatever I liked over and over and over again without that activity going stale.
What does going stale mean? I remember playing many a game of Monopoly with anyone who would said yes to a game. When the game was over and the question came up, "What do we want to do next?" I would respond, "Well, Monopoly sounds good."
I've noticed other people gegt bored with an activity after a while and I don't understand this. If something is enjoyed then why should it get boring?
I can play whatever I am interested in at that point in time for hours on end. The first time I played Final Fantasy 3 I played it for 10 hous and 58 minutes straight! I didn't get bored or moody; when I get into an activity it becomes the only thing that matters. Why would I want to play outside when we could just play another game of Monopoly?
This adapting, or rather resistance to change is not just chained to games. It takes a long time for me to become bored with foods. I don't try new foods often (except when I travel. In fact, just two nights ago I tried
How bad am I on repetitve food? In the late 90's when I discovered Papa John's pizza I ate it so much that the regional manager came to our house with balloons and coupons. I guess that's the least he could do for me single handily putting his kids through college.
This lack of being able to adjust to new activites has always been just as hard on me as it has been for those that I have known. The same way you can't understand how I like to do the same thing over and over I don't understand how you wouldn't want to play 4 games of Monopoly in a row. Misunderstanding, in this case, is a two-way street.
I hope to expand this concept a little bit more in the future, but from the Chili's I'm in I am hearing that it is time to board so I will be in the office tomorrow to give you the details of my interesting weekend.
