"I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"
"I think you can in Europe!"
So say the geniuses of 10 Things I Hate About You.
Meanwhile, I know you can be off-kilter. I certainly am right now. I just left a bar (which we cabbed to and where we paid cover, thus a significant investment in the night) for no good reason. I was suddenly seized with this overwhelming feeling of... something. Not tired, exactly, and not sick. Like that weird out-of-body feeling when you take two Tylenol PM and then stay awake longer than you should. This strange "omph" that hit me out of nowhere. I tried to rally; grinding up on E and the girls to Nelly and throwing back my gimlet, but just couldn't get it up. I left after just over an hour. Not trying to be dramatic here, but it was unsettling. Like the urge you get when some sixth sense is trying to push you out of harm's way. It really freaked me out, so I left.
Has this ever happened to you? Some feeling just comes over you that you have to get out right now? And if so, how does one get ON kilter?
