Based on a famous painting called, "The Scream"
Ok, I know it's a Monday morning, but the sun is shining, I got a good night sleep last night (unlike yesterday when I woke up from a bad dream about my mother (who passed away almost 10 years ago!) who was cutting all my daughter's hair off??!?? What on earth was up with THAT?????)...why did I sit down to write and all this crankiness come out? I seriously need some chocolate or drugs or something.
Sometimes I think of starting another blog where I could just let out all my "vents" about people anonymously (NO, I HAVE NOT DONE THIS!!). But I don't. I just think it.
Because I hate conflict. I hate hate hate it when people are mad at me. And I have learned the hard way that it's just generally better to keep your mouth shut, unless you want to do battle. Which I do not. I do not want to battle. I do not want to argue. Spent my teenage years doing that. Life's quota is full on that one.
Come to think of it, I bet there are people that would like to tell me off too! Hopefully they are like me and just keep it inside, ha ha.... :-O I'm sure I'm a jerk too. I'm sure I must also drive people crazy. I admit it.
And if you know me in real life and are worried that I have "vents" about you, I probably don't - most of the people that drive me crazy are also too self-involved to give a rat's patootie about what's going on in *my* life - they don't read this blog. Do you know how it makes me laugh when someone who "knows" me says to me, "Oh, you're building a place in the Adirondacks?" Like, maybe stop talking about yourself for 30 seconds and ask someone else what's going on in their life, like, once or twice a year? Instead of rolling my eyes, I just hear pounding steel drums in my head...
Are you the tell-people-off type, or the store-it-up-inside type?
P.S. No more rants today, I promise. :-P Sorry to poop on your Monday morning!
