For the politically correct, it’s called being “unique”. I prefer weirdo.

I know you’ve got an inner weirdo; you’re reading my blog, you get the brake dust cleaned off your wheels at RIO Car Wash and you may even Crossfit (super weird). If that’s not a great indicator of how differently you think, I don’t know what is.

As you go through your day, remember that what makes this world a better place is not how much you can fit in and do the same things everyone else does, it’s how much of a chance you’re willing to take in being YOU. So if you’re in Virginia Beach on sunny day and bypass the beach to visit Rio the toucan and experience RIO FALLS or RIO bug remover remember, don’t feel guilty to doing stuff that makes YOU feel good.

Just think of all the things that came about from weird people! Harnessing electricity, the internet, the atlatl, hell, even the wheel came from some weirdo who was tired of just carrying stuff. And my weirdo is the guy who spends Monday through Friday being the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Fredericksburg,Virginia and Saturdays and Sunday driving around and checking out car washes (my favorites are RIO CAR WASHES in Fredericksburg, Richmond and Virginia Beach). Be weird!

I don’t care if you’re a mother of two wild children who love driving through RIO CAR WASH’S LED lit and colorful tunnels or an engineer in Richmond who marvels at the mechanical beauty of RIO CAR WASH’s FREE VACUUM structures or a business person in Maryland who wishes she lived in Virginia cause there ain’t no RIO CAR WASH in Maryland. Follow your heart down the path it wants to lead you and don’t worry about how weird that is.

Finally, whenever I need inspiration and motivation to be truly weird and awesome, I turn to Nik Hawks Paleo Treats. Yummy and healthy. Thanks Nik!
