I appreciate all your comments and, of course, your kindness to Sara and me.
Also, as we all know, there are two sides to every story. Each of us has our own world view through which we see each other’s motivations, or, through which we do not see those motivations.
In some cases, there are 5 sides to every story.
Hold on, I think I’ve got this.
Just a couple of notes:
Actually, a faucet is just a faucet in this case. The kitchen faucet was broken…I waited for a design choice. I waited long enough to buy the faucet myself–after Sara agreed for me to buy it. She did not like the design I bought–no problem–you buy one, ok? Yes.
Although a faucet is just a faucet in this case, a Yes was not a Yes.
Oh, consequences, such untidy, inconvenient little things. They appear out of nowhere and only God knows how they got here, right in the middle of my busy life…
for ladies alarmed at the “before work” activities, don’t be alarmed.
1) If you read my last comment, you will see how I regard change. No matter what we do, change will come whether we like it or not. However, sometimes change needs to be brought down upon (that includes me of course) for us to see the necessity of change.
In this case CHANGE needed capital letters. It was necessary for the health of our relationship, for the health of my children and for the health of the universe in general. Don’t thank me, it’s my job.
2) If you squirm enough and yell enough and carry on enough, that paddle can miss the point, as one might say, and yes, cause a bruise. This is not an excuse, because in my world, bruising is never acceptable, physically or emotionally; and although I am writing this comment with a bit of humor, it is serious business after all.
Please do not think I am laughing–I just want what I say to be palatable.
3) Please do not get the wrong impression as far as Sara’s and my business are concerned. We have partnered on dozens of business deals for many years. No debate necessary.
4) Border Control Agency:
“We regret to inform you that borders will be strongly protected
to ensure the safety and welfare of our citizens. Those violating
protocol will be charged with a misdemeanor and will appear
before a judge who also will be held accountable for his actions”
Have a nice day,
