I don’t know about you, but I have had my fair share of those awkward texts where one party has misunderstood the other. It could be the shortness of the text when the other was expecting more, maybe. Or the wrong use of language that could be taken as a slight rather than a compliment. Perhaps even being called the wrong name. Online dating alert!
I am embarrassed to say that I have even argued with my husband via text and the texts got longer and longer and more painful and accusatory. It was really quite stupid, I know, but these are the times we live in. It has become acceptable to write to another using poor grammar, misspelled words, using coded language and ending messages with silly pictures, rather than calling. So I am refusing to do it anymore. I am giving myself the power by not responding. If someone can’t write properly, he or she’s a dope and I feel sorry for them. So there. Stick that in a text, why dontcha!
I am always attracted to humor and I have the belief that you can laugh your way through anything. Sarcasm can be funny, but not always. It can hurt feelings if not used appropriately, however, this is One Liner Wednesday, so let’s not get too deep this early in the morning, OK?
How often have you sat in an airport lounge or a shopping mall or maybe a doctor’s office and took a good look at everyone waiting. I’m sure you do what I do and start imagining what those people do for a living, what their spouses or partners are like, and what they might even say to each other when no one else is around. In a way it can be fun when you play with someone else because they usually come up with a completely different scenario than you. It passes the time, that’s for sure. Have you ever been certain you know what someone is like and then they surprise you and are the complete opposite of what you imagined? For instance, do any of you really know me? Hmmm?
I read a news story recently about a woman who married herself. She bought a wedding dress and flowers and even a ring. She wrote her own vows, to herself, and had a ceremony in her back yard. I don’t remember if she had any guests or whether she had a gift registry. Evidently this is a new trend and there are many disillusioned people out there who have tried traditional marriage or partnerships and have decided they are happier going solo. So much so that they are committing to themselves. Funny, right?
We all wake up on the wrong side of the bed sometimes, and need a little direction to get us going. This is what I would call a ‘no frills’ horoscope for the day. I think it’s good advice and so I will do my best, and take it. What do you think?
We have all had those days where we know from the moment we wake up that we should just have stayed in bed. You know, one step forwards and three steps back. Whatever we do, we have to do twice. Let’s hope today is not like that, right? Hope you have a good one.
