Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.
- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Stupid Questions

Why is it that people will ask you a question knowing full well that they will not like the answer they get.   Being someone who tends to say the first thing that comes into her mind.  I tend to find myself in the foot and mouth situations that could easily have been avoided had I simply thought about what I was going to say before I said it. Today was one of those situations, during a break at work a friend was telling me this loooong story (that probably took all of 5 minutes to tell, but felt more like an eternity in my head) all about her weekend and the string  of guys she “seeing.”   After sitting patiently listening to her prattle on she finally asked me “Do you think I’m a whore?”  I calmly and cheerily replied “No whores get paid, you’re just a slut” and went about eating my yogurt.

At first she actually looked a little offended once but she knows me well enough   To know that I sometimes have verbal diarrhea and I don’t mean any harm. I could have chosen more tactful way of putting it…but I was maybe a little annoyed that she’s taking my entire smoke break up with her incessant rambling but I am certainly not judging her. What she does with her body is her own business. However, if you’re going to tell me a 20 minute long story about your exploits over the weekend, don’t expect me to not give you an opinion. And especially if you’ve asked for my opinion, you can’t get mad if you don’t like what I have to say.

Why do people do that?  Are they trying to ruin their friendships and relationships.? Is it like a form of secret sabotage? That’s like a 300 pound woman asking if she looks fat in a string bikini…or a crystal meth junkie  asking you if you think his teeth are jacked up…

what are you supposed to say to that….

it’s a trap is what it is….

All I’m saying is don’t ask questions if you’re not prepared to hear the answer…

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.
- Mahatma Gandhi
