But I’ll tell you who’s never boring: my extended family. If I have time to write novels, I would have plenty of fodder right there. Plenty of ADHD-inspired fun and games for a series…
Was just talking to an uncle about his current goings on and it reminded me of all the funny stories we have thanks to our quirky gene pool. I come from a long line of people who are smart and capable but…just can’t seem to reign in certain IMPULSES shall we say, and just can’t seem to stay interested in much of anything for more than about a minute at a time. We move fast, but we bring the action!
Much of my extended family works in jobs or careers that allow them to be in different places all the time, or to move around between departments or tasks or…whatever. A few are just plain nomadic.
A story that another uncle told me one time made me wonder though…apparently, my great-grandmother, who was native-american, used to ride in a wagon between the Northeast and the Midwest with her family, going from one family place to another, depending on the time of year.
So…I’m literally descended from nomads…and many people in our family certainly fit the criteria for ADHD diagnosis…hmmmmm…..
