Here are the tasty dark chocolate M&Ms I am munching while I type. Just because.
Oh, lawd. Can I tell you about yesterday evening? It isn't pretty. I got home from work and many people were sitting around the livingroom. Kick Back Dude and the gang, Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad, and WTG as well. Everyone was just chatting and then WTG decides to tell one of his very obnoxious racist jokes. I don't want to sound all tightassed and stuff, but I really hate racist humor. It just makes me cringe and he knows it. Anyway, he got up to go in the other room and without even thinking about it, I flipped him off behind his back. That was wrong, wrong, wrong on a few different levels, but it was impulsive and I didn't give it much thought at the time. No one even commented, the moment just passed and the evening continued. WTG and Handsome Lad went out to get themselves some dinner, the rest of us ate and started watching American Idol (I know). Okay, then WTG and HL get back...they came in through the kitchen door and WTG calls for me to come in the kitchen and goes off completely. Handsome Lad told his dad that I'd flipped him off behind his back. It caught me by surprise, although it shouldn't have and I just kind of laughed and said, "Oh, geez, I'm sorry. I was just goofing off." He was out of control, yelling...he knocked the coffeemaker over and that made quite a mess and then he swept the George Foreman grill into the sink where some dishes were soaking. Fortunately it wasn't plugged in, but I'm pretty sure they aren't supposed to get wet. Kick Back Dude stepped in the room briefly when it all started and made a calming effort, but I don't think WTG even registered him. He quietly packed up his family and left, in a wise move. Meanwhile Handsome Lad and Girlie Girl are hearing all of this in the next room. He yelled for several minutes and I didn't really say much because I could see in his eyes that it wouldn't be useful. Eventually, he went back out the kitchen door into the backyard. Girlie Girl was crying and wanting to leave, Handsome Lad was hiding out in his room, I was trying to act like no big deal. Everyone just went to bed.
Anyway, just awhile ago WTG called me and apologized for overreacting. He said he gets the feeling a lot that people are against him and he takes everything very personally. I just told him we need to find some way to both be able to live our lives without these high dramas. And that was pretty much that.
I warned you it wasn't pretty. It wasn't even that interesting or different. I guess I am just writing this all down so that I never relax so much that I forget what a psycho he is. Now, tell me what YOU think!
