There are nice ways to say things and then there are not so nice. I try to start a little friendly conversation on a social network, asking some questions that I really wanted answers to and got some good old snark in the process.
I’ve learned my lesson:
Don’t ask if anyone has a problem with something that you (maybe) think you have a problem with. We aren’t even talking politics. Or the economy. It was a twitter or twat issue as we like to call it in our neck of the woods. I ask one little “Does this seem weird to you” and I got a whole bunch of “why would you feel that way’s or “I am at a loss as to why you would feel that way”.
Some people were very “I wouldn’t worry…” or “oh, I can see, but I’m sure it’s fine”… that’s nice… You must have been weened properly as a baby.
So from now on, topics I’m bringing up
What’s your favorite pet?
Oh, crap, am I going to piss off PETA if someone says Pit Bull? Not that there’s anything wrong with Pit Bulls. I have a Schnauzer. And 2 cats, one from a rescue group. The other was feral. Oh, crap, that’s another sore subject.
What’s your favorite color in the rainbow?
Oh, crap, if I say purple, am I gay? or anti-gay? or can’t I talk about rainbows at all? I like gay people. I know and respect many. I think I may have Clay’s next baby…crap, my tubes are tied.
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
No, not necessarily foreign, I love America. I love foreigners too. And the band Foreigner. I have all their albums…no I love Journey and Styx too…CRAP!
What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
No, I’m not saying “breast”…it’s not happening. You can snark on me all you want. At least I didn’t say “boob”…”breast” is so much nicer. Not that I’m into those…but if I were it’d be ok…you know… crap…
I am now the blogger and twitterer of puppies and rainbows…
Hello Kitty, where are you? So glad you are back!!
