Today I was presented with a nice little conundrum.

I got the following text-message:

Are you avoiding me?

This coming from a person (who does not read this 'blog) that I am, in fact, avoiding. This is a rather simple yes/no question, but it's one that I cannot answer.

If I answer "no" then I'm lying, and I'm not going to lie just to make this person feel better.

If I answer "yes" then I'm telling the truth, but the mere fact that I'm answering is ending my avoidance, which makes me a liar again.

So my choice is to not respond at all. Not the most grownup way to deal with this, but I never said I was a grownup.

If you haven't left a comment here before, you may need to be approved before your comment will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.

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.
