Daily Prompt: The Normal

Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing? Neither?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVERYDAY.

What does being normal exactly mean? Can we define “normal”? Who sets the rules and standards for “normal”? Valid question for which I have no answers.

What I do know is that by society I am considered a normal person. I don’t break law, I always punch my bus ticket, I pay taxes, go to work, more or less care for environment and try not to disturb my neighbors.  The typical citizen. That’s the outer appearance.

Entirely another thing happens in my head. Heaps of various characters are running seemingly aimlessly through my head. I encounter them at the strangest of times and places. When I’m waiting at the bus stop, when I’m traveling to work, when I’m brushing my teeth, when I’m sitting on my balcony and enjoying the view.

I see a story when I find an interesting picture, landscape or a photograph. After watching a movie, TV show or reading a book I immediately create a character who can inhabit the universe of the story.

So, the question is: Is it normal? Or am I an oddball now? Granted nobody knows about it. Where exactly does that put me on a scale of normality?
