“DJ. I know you said you were sorry, but I did not feel your apology was a real one. You hurt me. and I want a real apology.”
While I applauded her ability to express exactly why she was unable to accept the fly-by apology, I was wondering who exactly taught her this new use of her words. And I’m not sure, given our history with people teaching her new ways of using her words, I’m ready to thank them yet. I may wish they had taught her to swear instead. But then again, I guess she could learn that one at home.
I should point out that his assessment that I drink too much coffee was based on nothing more than his belief that everyone who drinks coffee drinks too much…..and maybe the fact I will think out loud in a way that makes more sense to me than to the listener…..but I still don’t think I drink too much coffee…..not every day anyway.
But then again, this is from the guy who sent me a list of “project drivers” on Friday for a presentation next week and the last one was “because I want something good to add onto my resume”. My response was that typically that is not a project driver you make public – you keep it to yourself or at least don’t say it to the president of the company (which is one of the audience members). No one responds to him like this, so he enjoys the banter. Even if it is with someone who drinks too much coffee….
One of the funniest thing that I witnessed this week was when Garbanzo’s friend who is a heavily tattooed, huge guy who listens to music that makes you want to go out and kick puppies came in as the girls and I were watching a Tivo’d episode of Project Runway. He looked at the TV and said “oh, no! I can’t watch this at all – I can’t see who wins because I haven’t seen the episode yet. I’ll be outside” and he ran for the door. After I yelled after him to see if he was seriously running from the TV and received affirmation, I almost fell off the couch laughing. The image of this guy watching Project Runway obsessively just doesn’t fit. And for the record, he is cheering for Seth Aaron which I think most people in this area are given he’s the “local guy” who is totally representing Pacific Northwest style or at least one of them.
I leave you with a video I saw of an octopus who stole a diver’s camera and swam off with it. The diver wrote about the video:
While trying to get video of a wild octopus, it suddenly dashed towards me and rips my shiny new camera from out of my hands, then swims off, all while the camera is recording! he swam away very quickly like a naughty shoplifter. after a 5 minute chase, I placed my speargun underneath him and he quickly and curiously grabbed hold of the gun as well, giving me enough time to reach in and grab the camera from out of his mouth. I didn’t feel threatened at all during the whole ordeal. he seemed to be fixated on the shiny metallic blue digital camera. the only confusing behavior was how he dashed off with it like a thief…
