Dear Local Blogger:
I remember having a conversation years ago with a loved one. I told her that if everyone is disagreeing with what you’re doing, they can’t all be wrong. I wonder if perhaps there’s a bit of “no one is going to tell me what to do in my own space” type thinking going on right now, which is perfect within your legal rights. It is, after all, your blog.
You asked those disagreeing with you to name one 9/11 victim, referencing that we all could name the Twin Towers, but not any of the victims. However, you may want to consider that 9/11 happened 12 years ago in New York; the local young girl hasn’t even had a funeral yet. That makes a big difference when naming names.
I really hated the old building is gone, too. I am at a loss, though, to understand what you are thinking on this one. I don’t believe you are as hard-hearted as this situation is making you appear.
I couldn’t help but listen, you chose to sit next to me…and believe me, I tried to block you out. Maybe you don’t realize that you say “like” no less than 8 times per minute. And when you are gossiping about a conversation with your friend, that total doubles. “Like, I was like, you can’t like do that. She was like, well, like, I don’t know what she said. But, like, I was like OK, like do what you want, and she was like do you think, like, I shouldn’t?” The thing is, I could tell you and the young man weren't very well acquainted, and I just don’t think you impressed him…but I think you really wanted to. At one point, I tried to tally how often you said it, but you went into a roll of “likes” and I like, lost count.
Sometimes, because of the way you misbehave, I really do consider a wig.
Dear MidSouth Vendor:
It just looked funny to me, for some reason, to see you in the fast food drive through line in your MidSouth Van ordering coffee.
“Extra ice” isn’t to be confused with “hardly any ice at all.”
Side note: I am a little hesitant to post this particular entry...but have decided to anyway. For you non-locals, there was an old landmark building (I have photos, but can't find them!) that was destroyed by fire after a terrible accident that resulted in the death of a beautiful 25 year old girl and critical injuries to a 25 year old young man. When I first heard the news, I was immediately saddened that I would no longer see the old building on my many trips to Tennessee. I will miss it. But I am more more saddened by the tragic loss of life. There are too many variables to speculate on the facts of the case, who was thinking what...why...so I won't. I do know that people of all ages make really stupid mistakes, and sometimes, those stupid choices cost lives...sadly, at times, the life of the one who made that last bad decision.
