usually when I'm "overhappy" (too happy to contain myself) I have senseless (retarded) thoughts

Senseless Thoughts (Stupid Story)

When I'm overhappy it's usually
because of my son
so I tend to have thoughts that
are retarded or let's just say dumb

Like yesterday I stopped into
the video store
to pick up The Brave One
and House: Seas 3 Disc 4

I was browsing videos all of a sudden
this frumpy dude was standing in
my light
pear shaped, haggard looking,
kind of looked like he might have
had a tough life

Like for 10 seconds he gave me the
creeps and I couldn't figure out what for
til I found out he was like 28
looking like he eclipsed that by a
decade or maybe a score

Then in a flash his life flashed before
my eyes or what I imagined of it
28 in his Mom's basement or attic
claiming to everyone it was for
her benefit

These thoughts took about five min.
I estimated because in reality I didn't
know when they started
but as I was headed back to my van
I thought to myself man those thoughts
were retarded

And I laughed hard Hysterically!!!!

i do those things too Will. Sometimes my mind escapes my brain and it flies off into the land of Blotto. Its there that I live in a story created during the down and out time of my brain activity. Or maybe, its when my brain is most active. None the less, I do know what you mean. It's like creating a whole movie and you don't even know your are the writer, director, actor, and audience all at the same time.Crazy!!
