The Hydra

Seriously, Whackadoodle-hydra, can you please stop now?  If you are unfamiliar, click the highlighted word "hydra"; basically, they are something like this:  

For every head you cut off, two more grow in its place.  Unstoppable.  Unbelievable.  Truly.  The dude actually called ME a hydra...not sure why....maybe it has something to do with PROJECTING. 

It has been 21 months since I invited this whackadoodle to leave my life.  And..he..still...texts.  Now, I know I could block his number (thank you Apple), but then I wouldn't be quite able to monitor the level of crazy.  I am just simply stunned.

At the fact that he still texts and the absurdity of the subject matter and that his purpose is completely beyond me.  That's right, I, Wanda, am puzzled by this Whackadoodle.  Just when I thought I had them pegged.  

One day it will be song lyrics; the next, some horrific insult (as if his opinion of me mattered in the slightest).  His most recent missive was some crap about  how he could cook an over-easy egg better than I can......even though he later said he was cooking egg whites...and why in the holy hell do I care??!  "Oh, wait, that changes EVERYTHING. I want you back"....is that what he is hoping for??  

Now, I know that I am super wonderful and all, but I don't think I really scar people.  They do that all by themselves.  It must be dreadful to be told by Heaven to leave.  ;)  

Love and light, y'all!

Non Responders

Whackadoodle-doo, y'all!  I guess I could kinda accuse myself of this lately, since I haven't been posting for awhile.  But we'll get to me another time.

I am talking about those people in your life, yes, even FAMILY MEMBERS, who simply never respond to texts, voice mails, emails, FB messages, etc.  Is this not the height of rudeness to y'all?  I mean, I don't expect anyone to drop what they're doing just because they hear from me.  But a response within a few days' time is expected.  Even if it is just a "too fucking busy for you".

Here's what Miss Manners has to say about responding to electronic communications.  (click that highlighted "Miss Manners" link).

Honestly, the only people to whom I do not respond are the whackadoodles whom I have invited to leave my life.  But a friend or family member always gets a response from me.  Usually right away.  Why, good grief, if someone reaches out to me with love, with a joke, with a request for advice, I want to let them know I appreciate them thinking of me and help if I can.

The only message I can take from someone who does not respond (even to a direct plea for communication) is that they just don't give a fat rat's ass about being in my life (and gosh, it took me a long time to learn that lesson). 

So, what do you do when a situation technically requires someone else's participation and they decline to answer you?  Why, you make the damned decision yourself and tell them to go take a flying leap.  :)  

I mean, life is way too short to let someone make your face do this


Hope to talk with y'all again real soon.

Love and light~
