Isn't it odd the effect one ill thought out remark from a friend can have? I am consumed by grumpiness today because of such a remark, and I have determined never to speak to the person who made it, ever again. I mean that. I am so stubborn. Once my mind is made up, that's it. No way will I change my mind. Never! Not in a month of Sunday's.
Silly isn't it? I know that. I also know that this bad mood will pass as quickly as it arrived. I also know that the person who made the remark, is probably totally unaware of it's effect on me. But leave me alone, to enjoy my grumpy moment, please. They don't occur too frequently these days, and I want to wallow in my misery for a while longer.
We all do it I would think, make unthinking comments. It is impossible to spend too long thinking before we speak. Blimey! If we were to mind our P's and Q's all the time the art of conversation would surely die.
I do it. Used to do it a lot when I was younger. Not so much these days, but I'm sure it still happens occasionally. As I say, sometimes we are not even aware of it.
That's better! Got that off my chest. Now I am off to give my friend a hug. She, or he, I'm not saying, will perhaps wonder why they are being hugged. I shall tell them it's because I like them.
