Now you all know I’m not one to exploit the effort of others for my own gain, and I’m especially not the type who would produce a post based solely on the comments of my blog-buddies (who by the way are among the smartest and wittiest in the blogoshpere, there that should make them happy).
You also know that I am definitely not one to make a joke at the expense of others. So you know that my including these two comments here is simply because they make a point much more eloquently that I could (well, one of them does anyway, it’s always hard to give the impression of profundity when you quote Jenny).
Once in a very rare while, a comment will be left that is so profound (you should know what that means if you looked up profundity), so insightful and well, so true, that I just have to share it with you. This pearl of wisdom comes from Wolfbaby: "That is just way to funny, I shouldn’t wait so long between visit’s (sic) I should be knocked over the head for that;)" I would like you to ponder that for a minute, as it just about says it all (unfortunately I haven’t seen her since she left it).
This next one from Jenny is a good example of how a witty comment can turn around and bite you on the arse, and I ought to know! Initially is seems innocuous enough, but there is a sting in the tail (although I’m not sure how a tail stinger can actually bite you. for those keeping score, that one goes in the ‘mixed metaphor’ column). Jenny said: "And by barbie I mean Australian BBQ, not your Barbie Doll. But really, isn’t it about time you give up that as well?"
Ha! The joke’s on you Jenny! In your attempt to ridicule me you were obviously unaware that I actually do have a Barbie, so your sarcasm is misguided (and is it really sarcasm if it’s true?).
To answer your question: no, it isn’t time to give her up.
