The Slip Up

Published: June 2, 2010

Have you ever had a slip up? Something came out and you don’t know if you meant it or not, but they’re the most natural words you’ll ever say. For example, “I hate you,” “Shut up,” and my favorite, “No one likes you, we just keep you around because no one has the balls to tell you no.” Now, most of us at one time or another has said this to a person, normally it bursts out spontaneously chockfull of emotion, in this case a concoction of bitterness, disgust and, oh yeah, hatred. But before this “sudden” outburst your mind fizzes with that selfsame idea a thousand times over, it bubbles and brew in that cauldron you call a head until it’s too much for you to handle. You spill it onto the cause or the person closest to you, leaving a mess and your mind empty for the time being. This is what I call a slip up.

Now, is it possible to slip up with yourself? We’re all aware of our subconscious mind, right? Information just beyond our reach, that we turn a blind eye too, almost on purpose. Like your subconscious thinks you’re getting fat, but it’d never tell you that lest it’d hurt your feelings. Then one day it does in fact come into your mind while it’s staring you full in the face, just a little whisper, “I’m fat,” not “I’m chunky,” not “I’m getting a tummy” and you certainly don’t blame the shirt you’re wearing at the time. At that moment everything is so plain and simple. At that moment you wonder what that meant. At that moment you wonder how long it’ll be, if it’ll be. And that moment always returns. I love her.
