Bat Shit Crazy

How cool are these bats?   Who knew they could shimmy the way that they do?  I can’t help but feel that they all look a bit smug.   Maybe because they don’t have Covid and are hitting a night club during lockdown?  If they are courting does the female bat, bat her eyelashes at the male bat? Just sayin.

I had to research the term ‘Batshit crazy’ as I can attest to being partial to this state of mind at times.   Apparently, it comes from the old term ‘bats in the belfry’.   A belfry housed the bells at the top of a church.   As bats use high frequency sonar, they are highly sensitive to sound and would never reside in a belfry where the bells were working.   Subsequently uninhabited belfry’s often housed bats, therefore the saying would intimate that there was nothing going on the bells were not working .  ‘Batshit crazy’ goes one step further to describe the abandoned belfry as being coated in batshit.

Perhaps somebody doing the moonwalk around a park whilst walking their dogs could be described as ‘batshit crazy’.  Or doing the ‘bend and snap’ move from Legally Blonde whilst picking up their dog poop ( I have mentioned these scenarios in previous blogs) could also be described in the same way.  Either way I insist on embracing my crazy as I believe it is the best part of me. Mediocrity can take a hike.

All the best

Stay fab
