Head Conversations

Do you ever have conversations with other people in your head? More specifically negative conversations so that if the opportunity arises where you have to go to verbal battle, you are prepared.

Saturday my BF S and I were going shopping and had a conversation about this. She asked if I ever did that and I told her I absolutely did. The biggest reason I do is because I am not a confrontational person, so if the need arises where I need to defend myself, I want to be ready. I want to have my quiver full of insults and sharp words to fling back ready in the exact moment they are needed.

My biggest inner battle is between me and a woman I call "Crazy Dog Lady." I blogged about her twice when I first started this blog because I was in absolute shock that the whole thing had taken place at all, and then proud of myself for sticking up for me and every other dog owner who walks on the trail where I encountered her.

If you want a bit of fun reading, you can read all about "CDL" here (part 1) and here (part 2).

I still have conversation battles in my head with this woman because there is a very real possibility of coming across her every time I set foot outside my house. I swear I have never met anyone like her and hope to never meet anyone like her again.

Do you have head conversations? Or are S and I just that weird?

I absolutely do this, have for as long as I can remember. And like yourself, it is because I am non-confrontational in person, but very confrontational in my thoughts, so sometimes I have to either 1. prepare a conversation for a future battle or 2. relive a past conversation, but change it up so that I don't come out as the wuss.

I do this as well. When it comes to conversations sometimes I don't know how to respond to something until much later which is why I like to rehearse things mentally ahead of time.

I too do the same thing. I remember reading about the CDL. I hope if you run in to her again that you have the perfect stuff to say to her.
