I fool myself from time to time that I have mellowed, but working at home ‘alone’ for the last few years, so that I don’t have to deal with stupid people is what’s really happened. Your page today made me smile, I usually draw a crab when I’m feeling crabby… snottaaay… I’ll have to remember that one. Hope today is better… go get those glasses.
Maybe that’s all that’s happened. I’ve been working at home for 30 years. Going to pick the glasses up on Wednesday when they open after the holiday! Thanks Elaine.
THAT IMAGINATION DOG IS GREAT!!… he made me smile as did your well-deserved rant and rave…I am sooooooo tired of the comment ‘old age aint for sissies’ (s–t I said it) but need a new, more clever phrase.. you bring much joy to all of us, addicted to Roz… so there…the eyes have it..
Thanks Sandra. I’m glad you enjoyed this post.
Love the writing, love the dog, love the page. Sorry about the eyestrain, but I think many people are feeling cranky these days. Looking forward to the In-Context series.
Thanks Susan, I am hoping that the new prescription (they are redoing it because it didn’t work) will take care of the eyestrain. It won’t cure the crankiness as you understand, but it will make life more fun again. Thanks for the kind comments.
Love the honesty of your thinking and writing! Too many of us have too many filters that get in the way of expressing what’s really going on with us. Thanks for the great post.
Thanks Frank, I appreciate your kind comments as always.
I have a word for what I do when I “just can’t deal” with THOSE (raised eyebrows, snot-tay tone) kinds of people and interactions: hermiting. Just googled it, and I am not the only one using it. Now I may prefer “non-engaged contentment” instead! Always love your collage pages. Looks like the dog is listening, and quietly contented, too.
Jennifer since I’m the one being snotty you’d be “hermitting” from me. But I am glad you have a work around. Glad you liked the post.
Yet another reason why comments are not the same as talking out loud. I meant that I was talking in the the snotty tone, as Dick described, about annoying (“those”) people and situations that you were experiencing. It came out wrong. Back to hermiting…and hooray for writing all over sketchbook pages.
