Enough Already!


who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don’t come back for me
don’t come back at all
–Christina Perry

Ok, I get it. Who do I think I am? I’ve crossed the line. I’ve made comments in your blog that appear inappropriate. Well, if you had turned on the option to approve comments before they get posted, this wouldn’t have been an issue. But nonetheless, I deserve the reprimand. I take full responsibility. It just hurts when you mean well, you end up being misunderstood.

I’m a guy who has an opinion on a lot of things. I love to give it freely even when it’s not solicited. At times, I’ve failed to pay attention to how it would be received. Worse, I’ve got the true message lost in translation.

I admit that I’m not a native English speaker and that I still have to master its subtlety. This must explain the reason why when I try to be funny, it doesn’t come across that way. or when I intend to be only kidding, folks would think I’m deadly serious with my teeth clenching. That being said, having English as a second language is no excuse for being insensitive to other people’s feelings. and, if I may add, most especially to yours, which I value highly. I’m so sorry.

You’re right. I blab too much. I’m a smart aleck. I’m a party nightmare come true. In my hubris, I can’t contain myself when I’m in the ‘been there, done that’ frame of mind. I tend to forget that truth can be relative and that stupidity can lead one to believe that he’s wiser than he really is.

As a result, I’m taking a sabbatical on posting comments in any blog as a self-imposed punishment. I’ll retreat to my own little shell for now. Darn, it would be hard, but I’m sure you’re not the only one applauding. If I get past the critical first week, I’d make it. For old good time’s sake, you could at least wish me luck.
