It’s a new term that was taught to me (thanks, bluknight), that runs along the same lines as “freaking the mundanes”, but seems to have a more profound impact. You can just picture the scale of one’s sensibility just crashing (or breaking) when they experience something outside of their comfort zone. This can be something ranging from a small tube going “kssshhh!” to a large, thick flourescent tube going “BOOM!”.
I may have done the latter to someone who works at the same place I do, but in a different area. It’s okay though. Before you all write in saying how I really should practice discretion and all that, let me make one thing perfectly clear…….what I do on my own time is my own business and no one else’s. I don’t do anything out of the ordinary while at work (I have learned to keep those arenas separate), so I just reserve it for my off-hours.
I know……I keep flogging this dead horse more and more, but hey…..it causes no harm to anyone else, and I’ve not been thrown out of any businesses for my activities. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I’m 6’2″, but I’ve just gotten to the point in my life where I’ve paid my dues and been through too much to let myself be tied down (unless willing *snicker*), and anyone who can’t deal with that needn’t come around. I’ve acquired quite a few good friends here who think it no big deal, and are very supportive, so I’m lucky to know them, and value them greatly.
So if you’re cruising about town, and you hear what sounds like a row of test-tubes breaking in a steady chain, don’t worry……….ShockQueen’s just out and about again.
