Some things I can safely ignore. I can simply pretend that they didn't happen and go on about my merry ways.

There is, of course, the problem of persistence. I can't really just keep ignoring something over and over and over. Doing that ends up sending exactly the type of message that I'm trying to avoid sending. I mean, if I ignore something so many times that it becomes obvious that I'm ignoring it, the whole point has been lost. Perhaps that moment has already passed. I don't know and I'm not about to ask.

It's kind of nice to be in charge of something for a change though. Kind of nice to have someone else doing the waiting. The wondering.

I text-messaged my sister the other night and told her that I was an asshole. When she called me back to ask why, I told her.

"It's about time!" was her response. Or something like that anyway. That was the gist.

So I'm having fun being the asshole. It's my turn, at least for a while.

Eventually, my better nature will win out, and I'll stop ignoring this. Or, more likely, I'll encounter something that I cannot ignore.

It's kind of like a race.

Pretty exciting, huh?

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
