That crazy bag lady

Bethany's mind really fascinates me. Tonight, in the bath, she commented that when Andrea shouts her voice sounds kind of blurry. (Andrea is a friend of mine, we don't hear her shout all that often; it just sounds normal to me when she does). She said Andrea's voice sounds kind of blurry and it reminds her of Andrea's skin, which is kind of smooth and kind of blurry. (It's just normal skin). She said when Andrea shouts, she thinks of/sees grey, and blurry windows, and Andrea's skin. Totally peculiar. We did see Andrea today, but she didn't shout...
Oh, when I mentioned to Paul my comment about her being a great author or crazy bag lady, he kindly reminded me it's possible to be both. Great.

Andrea seems to be completely normal to me .Though i must admit I haven't taken much notice of her skin. Paul is right it is more probable that Bethany could be both. Simple solution, don't let her ever carry a bag of any description.

Hey Rachel.. just reading some interesting stuff on Synaesthesia (or Synesthesia). It's where people 'see' colours when they hear things (or music), or particular letters or numbers have particular colours. Maybe Bethany is one of the special 1/23 people who see colours associated with sounds or graphemes (letters and numbers)? Here's the link to good old Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia

All very interesting.. The bit about the girl who was so surprised when she realised she could change the colour of a P (yellow) just by adding a line and turning it into an R (orange)gave me a giggle :)

Anyway.. happy reading xx

Yes I have heard of that before. I'm not sure if that's her, or if she's just got a creative mind. Time will tell...
