Do you know those people who take everything very seriously? And you have to watch what you say because they offend so easily? And more often than not you say something completely innocent and they take it the wrong way?
Take for instance an acquaintance named Lamey. She is single and having a great time. She has no ties and so travels and gallavants, and generally lives life to the fullest.
But if I say, “You are so lucky! You can just take off at any time and go anywhere you want! That is awesome.”
She will respond with: “Oh I’m lucky I have no one? Yeah. That’s really lucky.”
Or if I say, “You are so pretty!”
She might answer back, “So you’re saying it’s weird I don’t have a boyfriend?”
Many times, I gather up the pieces of the eggshell I traipsed all over, stick it in my pocket, and keep my mouth shut.
But this one time we were at dinner and to make conversation I said, “That filet looks amazing!”
And she said, “Are you saying I’m fat?”
So we don’t really talk anymore. But I wish her single, fat ass all the best.
