Scratchings in the Dirt

I’ve been naughty

Yes, folks, I know it’s hard to believe, but I have not been the good girl that you all know and love.  “Anonymous” left me a couple of comments on one of my previous posts (don’t go looking – I’ve deleted them!), and I…well, I…um….you know….sort of….replied.  There. I admit it.  I replied.  I let some un-named person get under my skin and I retorted.  I had some really good rebuttals – kind of wish I would have left them for a while – but in the end they sounded a bit childish.  And as I grow older, I have realized, usually through experience, that kind of thing will come back and bite you on the butt.  Hard.  And so, while I stooped low for a bit and wrote a few snarky comments (I’m telling you, they were go-oo-ood!), I caught myself and took the higher ground.  

It’s not that I don’t enjoy a spirited discussion of the issues at hand.  I can certainly hold my own.  And I’m sure you have all realized by now that I don’t really pull any punches.  But this certain someone refused to sign his/her comments, and I’ve decided that “anonymous” comments will forevermore go unacknowledged on this blog. 

So there you go.  Fair warning! 

Thanks for stopping by, though!

  1. ^^^ And I got all excited there for a minute, thinking Anonymous was back for another round of public pettiness. Damn. ;)

  2. you got me excited with the "i have been naughty" title. Knowing it was your husbands birthday and your anniversary tomorrow I thought.

    woo hoo we are going to hear some true avoca happenings–lol.

    I am glad you let annonymous have it!! You are totally in the right.

    Take care


  3. Way down here on the petty low ground, wishing I could get an email of all the snarky childishness… or the childish snarkiness… the whole kit and kaboodle! Based on my recent experiences, I vote for the disgruntled parent of one of the kids who got trounced in Pee Wee hockey.

  4. I admit, I went back through the posts on the blog, not looking for the comments but looking for anything that would spark a heated debate? Your senior moment with the slowcooker?? LOL

    As for anonymous, I HATE anonymous comments and normally delete them. I figure if you're not going to own up to comments you make, then you shouldn't make them. :)
