The Passives

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.

I'm with you all the way on this.

Serena- I like to play it, but it can be frustrating to get.

Honeykbee- It's soooo true, though, right? haha

Marissa- I laughed when I later realized how ambigious I made this sound;)

My first thought response was: "or cop-out."

Then I hesitated.

Then I decided, what the heck, I'll put it out there and let it sit.

Yeah, I'm confused.

Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

Such is life.
