Ha Ha.

Today I was described as "Brilliant, but tense."

I think he put the "brilliant" part in because I was standing right there.

The only "one-night stand" that I ever had (and I rebuffed the guy repeatedly over a period of months)ended on a subway car in NYC when he told me that I was "brilliant and in-tense, and pushed buttons that took him too deep."

Ha Ha, as you say...

WHO was that?

Elizabeth- Ha Ha indeed... And men say women are crazy! Well. Yes. Of course, you are brilliant and intense. You really must've pushed some kind of buttons that one night...

Mama- I made it sound more interesting than it is. He's this guy I hired. He's really good with tables but jeez, he puts me on edge. He was kissing my ass when he said "brilliant".

Did you hold your breath and ball up your fists and think of genius comebacks when he said it?

Brilliant like shiny?

May said...

Django- No. I just sighed.

DTG- If I was shiny and tense I'd be a robot.

Hmmmmm. Yes, I'm familiar with these statements. Folks like to call them compliments but they aren't, are they? Seem more like veiled insults to me. And if you are indeed "brilliant, but tense" you would already know that. You'd already be working to lower your stress level and find his replacement.

heh, brilliant like shiny. You shine like the stars shine, May.

It's better than being called an earth mother. That's what I get.

Sounds like a Woody Allen movie. I'd take that! :-)

At least you recognize COOL. That's more than a lot of assholes on the planet.

Love you so!
