Pinch of Salt
I have come up with all sorts of stories as to what I’ve been up to, such as I was a bit poorly for a while so taking some time off to figure out what to do next. I am a writer now. I went on a space mission and haven’t been around people for a long time. The problem with this is that people then will obviously wonder and question further. It’s part of being a human being to be curious.
The ups and downs I have experienced in my life have left me with a somewhat abrupt attitude. I am not a horrible, rude or obnoxious person. I treat everyone with respect and I am friendly and approachable. But within my comfort zone, amongst friends and family, I like to be straight to the point and sarcasm is in my nature. It’s a form of self defence I guess. Rather than moaning and whining about bad things that are happening I will make a joke out of it. Constant pain, lack of sleep and energy can leave you feeling very out of place in conversation and affects your mood quite considerably. My friends and family know to take my wording of certain things or my mood with a pinch of salt, as they know I am not a bitter person and I don’t mean to offend them. I wish to thank my family and friends for putting up with my anger in the form of sarcasm. If you truly know me, then you will know I mean no harm and on a brighter day I will be my sweet, delightful self… (Ahem).
