At first, I thought this might be the case. Since Labor Day, I’ve seen people making a huge, drama deal out of things that were, for all intents and purposes, no big deal. The first time, I passed it off as well, that knocked the slats out from under them and apparently they were affected in a big way by it. The second time, I thought it was people making something out of nothing. But there was another instance yesterday when somebody had explosive reaction to a simple request, and that made me wonder: what’s going on? Is there something in the water supply and Rick and I escaped it because we’re on a well? What is it? I shared my experience with Rick and he agreed that it was a big reaction to a small thing, and that we’ve seen a lot of this in a variety of places in recent weeks.
So what’s up, folks? Because when you make big drama out of minuata, it looks like one of three things:
1. You’re hiding something;
2. Something triggered a guilty conscious reaction; or
3. You’re trying to stir things up.
Far be it from me to judge or even speculate. I’m not asking for the story, but I sense chaos swirling. Keep it on your turf, please. I have enough crazy in life. I’m not accepting any more. And frankly, I understand that everything isn’t my business (thank God), nor do I want to impose myself on it. I have my hands full with attending to my own life, thank you very much.
Just know this: these huge reactions are as good as a billboard saying SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG!! If that’s not the message you intend to send, present it more accurately. If you are throwing hints, I’m not asking questions, but realize that not everybody will be that gracious. Busybodies abound, and eventually someone will start digging. It won’t be me, but someone will come with a shovel to start excavation. Be careful. They might dig up more than you want.
Maybe it’s simpler than all of that : people being themselves. I mean, the President and Congress are doing whatever they darn well feel like. They're acting like a bunch of girls that are mad because the boy they like took someone else to the Homecoming Dance. If they're acting like that, why shouldn't everybody else do what they darn well please, and throw violent fits and blame games over the consequences?
Whatever the case, I’ve decided not to spend any more mental energy pondering it, because there’s no figuring it out, and I’m averse to wasting my time. But whatever it is that’s the source of the drama – big, small, anywhere in the middle, or absolutely nowhere – good luck with that.
That is all. Have a Happy Friday tomorrow and a great weekend.
