This is the rock-and-a-hard place I find myself in. I think most women have been touched inappropriately at times. Sometimes a makeout session where the partner decides to see if 2nd base is in play, anonymous strangers on a crowded train, drunken jackasses at parties.
No it's not acceptable, but where do you draw the line? I was at a bowling alley once. A guy came up and grabbed my butt. Both hands. The only thing that traumatizes me about that incident is that I didn't break his nose when I punched him. I was trying, dammit.
How can I say "boys will be boys" without sounding like I have no self-esteem?
Scott Adams also has written about it. He pretty much articulated my thoughts. Bolding mine.
This is sort of an odd criticism; your timeline is a little off, considering the Mid-Atlantic accent was in use until after WWII, and that was specially designed to blend together elements of pronunciation from both American English and British Received Pronunciation (the "posh"-sounding British accent)...
Thanks Zip.. I appreciate that especially from you because I know we dont see eye to eye on most things and argue alot over politics. But when it comes down to it youre a decent guy as am I.
I tip my hat to you.
On Twitter I said that her hair was blocking the message, and nobody would want to be caught staring at her boobs to try to decipher her cryptic Sharpie message.
The shitstorm is still raging. I usually only Twitter about once a day. I'm always amazed if I have any notifications. I'm up to about 200 on this alone. I triggered them, I think.
LOL @ Zippy posting from Teen Vogue....
Just wanted to give everybody an update.. Today was basically my final followup post treatment.... Im officially cancer free. Had a terrific response to the allopathic treatment and just wanted to thank everybody for their prayers and kind words. Hopefully my taste buds and saliva glands will continue to improve so I can enjoy food again but its one of those things they say that require patience..
Thank you to everybody once again.
As an introvert, I find it hard to call people. But last night, when that happened, my reaction was "OMG! If had Suz's number I would call her right now! Her wish came true!"
DH thought it would be Abraham for two reasons - he was the biggest man there. Psychologically speaking it would make sense to take him down for effect. And the writers had left him in a good place - he was happy, having made some changes in his personal life.
I thought it would be Glen, because canon.
The cliffhanger stuff though - meh. Would have been better if they had given us the death we expected, then left us wondering if Daryl was also a goner over the summer.
"Your mother's dead, before long I'll be dead, and you...and your brother and your sister and all of her children, all of us dead, all of us..rotting in the ground. It's the family name that lives on. It's all that lives on. Not your personal glory, not your honor, but family." - Tywin Lannister
