Tidy Bin #1: email bag
Sob. My first “I’m unhappy with you Jane” email has arrived.
French Toast Friday’s Shrink Wrapped post hurt a valued reader’s feelings. Completely not the objective of that post. I do not want to hurt your feelings. I’m sorry that happened.
Let me be very clear: I believe in the value of psychiatry and therapy.
- I don’t find it funny or amusing to poke fun at any of us who utilize those tools.
- I do find it funny to listen to people poke fun at themselves and their situations.
If this had been a desperately serious conversation I would not even have thought of eavesdropping or commenting. Perhaps I didn’t do a good job in relaying how much deadpan humor there was between these two women. They were laughing at themselves, and I seriously doubt they spent every visit lying to their respective psychiatrists.
This is where the “I make stuff up” part comes in (see About). Do Daisy and I really go to Starbucks with the intent to listen in on conversations? No. Does it happen sometimes? Yes. Will you ever see a post up here parading someones pain? Not unless The Literary Horse gets hacked .
Humor + Public Place + Loud Talk & Laughing…now that might make it here.
Does this help clarify?
Tidy Bin #2: teacher saw you pass the note
While we’re on the subject of serious sweeping up, WordPress has a neato thingie that shows me which search engine words landed you at TLH.
Ahem. Will you guys who are teasing the heck out of Brandon Beers please knock it off? I don’t know him. I found (through the blog) that I do know someone who does. He’s not gay. You know that. Stop typing in “brandon beers” and “gay” into the search engine so you can (presumably) laugh at him showing up on a horse blog written by someone who is gay.
Brandon & Jade, you’re up here because I admired your roping skill. Sorry you have friends like that.
Very sorry that being gay is something people use to put other people down.
Tidy Bin #3: still married
Happily, we were still married when I woke up last Tuesday morning. Unhappily, a future couple falling head over heels in love will never wake up married. (In California.) How much of marriage is really about (give it 20 years or so if you’re in the first 5 years of marriage) what kind of person you’re attracted to, and how much is about creating a life together? Marriage is about love, attraction, family, and work. Lots and lots of work.
If in doubt, talk to your grandparents. I bet they know more about love and street fighting than you think.
We will return to our regular programming shortly. I hope. Soon. With humor!
