I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. Why? Because I Can!
The other day, my husband walked into the room and caught me talking to myself. He asked me why I was talking to myself. I told him, “Because I’m trying to develop a character who’s crazy and I need an expert opinion.”
It turns out, I had it all wrong. I’m not crazy, Ellen. According to this article on Elite Daily, talking to yourself is a sign of genius.
It also suggests that I’m more organized (I know a few people who’d argue against that) and that I’m more likely to achieve my goals (if sitting on the couch all day, watching Netflix can be considered a goal.)
I shared this link to my Facebook account and one of my friends was quick to remind me that talking to invisible friends isn’t the same as talking to yourself. I disagree. After all, if no one else is in the room, clearly you’re talking to yourself.
