I Blame My Mother...

OK, so you guys know I hung out with the Pigsknuckle Liberal this weekend, right? What you might not know is that he, 1) thinks I'm way smarter than I actually am, and, 2) reads my blog periodically. And he said something to me the other night that made me think...

Now, I probably don’t have it verbatim (lots of wine, remember?), but he said something to the effect of, “I’d hate to make you mad ‘cause you could flay me alive on your blog.”

What? Me? Mr. Pigsknuckle Liberal thinks I would be mean on my blog! Me!

I was sad. And I hurriedly assured him that I would never do such a thing.

...

Did I say never?

Hmmmm... 'never' is a really big word, isn't it?

I mean, there was that one time when I sort of ragged on those politicians. But they’re fair game, right?

And the occasional McDonalds employee might have been on the receiving end of a snide comment.

And, well, there was our 'Dear Former Reader'. And I sort of got a little snarky with him once (or twice… or maybe it was three times…).

Then there was Troll-Guy. And… ummmm… Troll-Guy again.

Yeah, there was also my ex-husband… but come on! Who doesn’t vent about her ex occasionally? Am I right?

Hmmm… ummm… and my brother (trust me, you don’t have the time).

And, well, my mom

Gulp.

Shit-oh-dear.

Mr. Pigsknuckle Liberal was right! I can be a bitch! (And no, he didn’t call me a bitch… not to my face, anyway.)

OK, clearly I need to work on this. Well, that, or Mr. Pigsknuckle Liberal could try really hard not to piss me off. I’m thinking that might be the road we need to travel… as it seems the snark might just be ingrained.

I blame my mother.

Ha ... You need to come with a warning label. Something like "Don't piss off or you will be blogged."

I think it's good that he knows... it will keep him on his toes!

Let him know you have the power to name names too!

Hehe, Diane! I love that you are so honest on your blog; that is one of its greatest appeals. Your writing is not just superb, but also very candid and personal and that is why so many people (including me) love it.
Tough luck if people can not handle your honesty.;) You are honest, not mean; that is a big difference.;))Please do not change.;))

I think a little fear in a man is a very good thing.

I think you can totally use this to your advantage.

I think you should be thinking things like, "What can I make the Pigsknuckle Liberal do for me so as not to be skinned alive on the blog?"

Just sayin'.

XOXO

It is like I've always said, liberals cannot be trusted.

I think all you've listed were fair game! Just sayin'. I don't think Mr. Liberal has anything to worry about! You only go after those who blatantly deserve it. He's got nothing to worry about.

Mothers, Exes, Politicians, Anon. Commenters, etc. They all asked for it and put themselves out there!

Mr. Liberal is a friend. I know you as a person who loves her friends! :-)

He's liberal ... he's fine with it. I'm sure his motto goes something like "Can't we all just get along." Far be it for him not to get along ... *snort* :)

Amy McMean said...

LOL. I agree. He'll just have to work on being really nice and not pissing you off.

Pauline said...

maybe he'll trip up and make you mad and then we'll get a giggle at the snark that elicits...

Stu Pidasso said...

Let he/she whom has not been a snarky bi-atch, cast the first stone.........no takers. I guess you are okay, Diane. I'll keep coming back to read. And thanks for the note on my poem.
