If it is possible to hate and embrace something at the same time, then I have done that with ambiguity. Both friend and foe I use and abuse it and then get frustrated and angry when used against me.
I hate for people to tell me what to do, but I get annoyed when the directions are lacking.
I flirt with the best of them, but get confused when that is it and at the same time, a lot of what I say is open to interpretation.
I want people to read and hear between the lines, but I get impatient when others write and speak in the same style.
I think ambiguity is the ultimate safety net.
