Bitch on the Blog

Missing in inaction

Sometimes I find myself like a cat wishing to spit. I have never seen a cat spit. So can only take anyone’s word for it.

My spitting taking the form of a parallel conversation (in my head, and on paper). Oh, dear Sweethearts. If you could see the vault of what I really think you and many others would shoot me into outer orbit.

I am no photographer but know, or rather have learnt, all about perspective. Perspective to either keep your mouth shut, amuse yourself with thoughts never to see the limelight, meanwhile chiselling one’s responses as not to bruise tender egos.

Yes, the tender ego. Luckily my upbringing was such that egos were encouraged. Tender? No. Definitely not. Bruising? Most definitely not. Limp if you must. But don’t let on.  Keep your mind’s hatchet in its shield.

The shocking fall out of the above: I live a double life. Not in a deceitful way. If you are my friend you are my friend. Even if you are not my friend I won’t ignore you. But fact is: When I put pen to paper, finger to keyboard I sure do have to curb myself.

In about thirty, fourty years’ time (faculties permitting) I shall open that treasure trove of mine. I can already predict who will be amused and who won’t.

Hugs and hisses,

U

  1. Better not come “over our way”. If you’re caught spitting in this borough you’ll be fined £80 for littering…….. apparenly Chairman Mao wrote against spitting in his little red book….. for very sound reasons actually.

    I’m glad that I’m not the only one who has conversations in my head….. on rare occasions they are quite pleasant ones.

    Don#’t let on! Keep a stiff upper lip! Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me! What a lie that last one is…..

  2. “The negation of severe suffering was the nearest approach to happiness I expected to know. Besides, I seemed to hold two lives – the life of thought, and that of reality.”
    ― Charlotte Bronte.

    I think that I will be in the latter group. That is my life of thought!

  3. no matter how much perspective i try to have or how diplomatic i try to be, my opinions have a nasty habit of leaking……and of course sometimes they dont leak, sometimes i take a calculated risk and let my opinion flow and too bad about consequences
