Crazy or Crazy for You?

So what exactly do you do when the crazy comes out? Then again does it? Are you the type that can drive someone else over the edge? Guess that could be the burning question, right?

Lets face it we may have all come face to face with a little crazy in our lives... They are the masters of manipulation. They can turn everything around. They will make you feel like you are the one that is going crazy instead of them. 

You might become paranoid, worry about are you seeing the situation the right way.  Maybe even second guess your initial impression (unless of course you are Super Seal).  

You could even second guess your judgement, yeah especially if there is a restraining order involved.  Because this is how the master manipulator might  changes the rules to keep you off your game, question is does it work?  

If you are a peaceful person, you might find yourself constantly fighting. You might explode when you get too frustrated. You feel like there is something seriously wrong with you.

They are charismatic, charming, and oh so smooth talkers. They are always ready with a comeback, they never appear off their game, they are exciting, and attractive.  But if your are lucky and find the right moment redemption may just be yours.

Just thought this might add a little spice for a Friday evening Happy Hour, maybe some fun for the weekend, psycho therapist is optional.  Though I think the meal will add some crazy spice to any occasion  and a cocktail that adds a twist to the childhood classic.  Hope you enjoy, and have a fabulous weekend!
