Extremist Dudgeon

Pretty Lady would just like to point out that some of her extremist friends are acting exactly the way some of her curmudgeonly would-be suitors used to act, the day they discovered that she was nice to everybody, not just curmudgeonly would-be suitors. If you are an extremist, it is disingenuous of you to go into extended periods of passive-aggressive pouting just because Pretty Lady has shown sympathy toward an extremist viewpoint that does not happen to be your own.

What part of 'love thy neighbor' don't you understand?

Thank goodness you couldn't possibly be talking about me. :)

Pretty Lady said...

Perish the thought. You are much too mature for any such thing.

Does this mean I'm an extremist?

And if so, what kind?

Pretty Lady said...

k, I can't picture you doing anything approaching passive-aggressive pouting, in this or any other lifetime. When I don't hear from you, I assume you are sleeping.

You are, however, an extremist when it comes to attention. I have literally never known a person to pay such extremely close attention to the nuances of every person's character the way you do.

There you go again... with that "curmudgeonly" thing.

Favorite new word?

Pretty Lady said...

Paranoid, Pretty Lady's readers--distinctly. ;-)

Well. My goodness.

I had no idea what to expect. The thought of being some kind of extremist certainly appeals. I had every reason to hope for an answer that was both creative and entertaining.

And you have honored me instead.

Thank you.

I love people.
