Just lately it seems as if I’m at war with an unknown entity; an elusive, pervading, mischievous spirit that seems hell bent on disrupting all forms of communication.
To put it in a nutshell, I seem unable to communicate with people without accidentally insulting them or causing them some form of upset. This usually happens when my intention is to make a joke or lighten a situation, but I’m so WAY OFF target that it is becoming embarrassing. I had my first Covid vaccination this week and, whilst putting on my coat and gathering my things together I even managed to insult the kind, charming, pleasant (and hunky) soldier who had given me the jab. What the hell was THAT all about?
There are few enough people that I communicate with at the best of times. With lock down that number has reduced still further, and almost all of that communication is electronic. The way things are going I can foresee a situation where that number hits the big zero as I drive more and more people away.
I guess, for the moment at least, it’s probably best if I limit the potential damage to those around me by giving up trying to communicate and just shut the f*** up.
I hope all of you are faring better in this regard.
Tish, you have never insulted me. I have done it to others a few times, and for me as it sounds for you, I feel terrible when it happens.

Thanks Stephie. That’s one reason I’m going to keep my trap shut for a bit, so as to try to put an end to this cycle before I hurt anyone else.
Darling – You have never insulted me and if I joked-back with a quip and you took it as me being upset or hurt I am so sorry. That has never been the case. Honestly, you have never upset me or hurt my feelings. We share a common sense of humor. I love you ***HUGGGERS***
