Who Is "Osidia"?
This page is devoted to a little friend of mine. His name is "Osidia". Now, you may ask, and understandably so, "Who is Osidia?"
Quite simply put, Osidia is my alter-ego. Or maybe I am actually his alter-ego. I don't know. Anyway, it has been a ton of fun finally putting a face and name to my alter-ego. Also, it is so very convenient to be able to point a finger at "someone else" whenever life's little quirks happen. In fact, it's downright fun!
It took me quite a long time to really figure out who this little alter-ego of mine is, what he might look like, defining his personality. And of course, what about his name? Once I had identified his personality, the name was right there. So, first let me tell you a bit about Osidia's personality.
Okay, now take a look at his face. Look at the expression. One word... "mischief"! The words that come to mind immediately are "pest", "joker", "fool", or as my friend Karen called him, "a jester", which really does describe who I am at heart ... the class clown!
And he DOES get into trouble but he is not mean-spirited. No, he is not that kind of trouble. He really has a heart of gold and would go to the ends of the earth to help someone. Most times when he gets into trouble it is only because he just can't stop himself from always having to play the part of the clown. Over the years some folks have said maybe I should grow up but, hey ... I have seen "grown up" and it doesn't look much like anything I would aspire to. I am getting older but I steadfastly refuse to grow up!
His name? In plain English, "Osidia" simply means -
"Oh Shit! ... I've Done It Again!"
So, whenever I say, "Osidia did it!"... now you know!
