I hold my hands up in mock despair when a character does something that has either nothing to do with their beliefs and original story line or there is an action that completely contradicts their core. I end up saying "well that was stupid" a lot. Or, "why was that even necessary?"
This talking to myself (or muttering) continued into daily actual for realsies out-of-doors life while I was shopping last week. I was trying to pick out the best hot dog buns. I don't buy hot dog buns on the regular. I splurged and bought some fancy vegan kielbasa (bring it on Jeff) so I needed some buns. As I stood there, weighing the cons of this brand and reading the ingredients of this other, I heard myself, chittering away. Then I noticed the bread-man stocking shelves.
Me - "So, lucky you. You got to hear my one way conversation with my crazy self."
Bread-Man - "You should hear me. We drive ourselves crazy in order to stop ourselves from going crazy."
*Side note. With the heat being so overbearing I have been opining about changing the expression of "The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread" to "The Best Thing Since Air-Conditioning" because I mean in the history of things I would think we as a human race could survive with having to slice our own bread. I'm team Air-Conditioner. Except for my Bread-Man. He's the best thing to happen to sliced bread and rationalizations.
