Little things...

Life is funny.

This weekend I learned another valuable lesson, a lesson I should know already.

Remember when I said I wasn't perfect, how I make mistakes... well, I made one this weekend.

You see, I'm a very private person, and at times I can be kind of possessive. Have you ever been in a situation where your neighbors were not the coolest people in the world? It's not like they're skinning cats and burning down orphanages, but they can be rather inconsiderate; i.e. let us say... taking your parking space, or leaving the front door to the building open... that sort of thing. Well my own parking space was taken last Friday, and I was livid.

I am a firm believer that what you buy is what you own. So, in my mind that space was mine, and to my credit, honestly, it is. I pay for off street parking, and if you take my space, you had best be in a defensive posture ready to go because I will fight for my right to park!

Of course, I wrote notes, three to be exact, and taped them on two different doors, and the offensive car. Mel, and all her blessed logic and tender ministrations, calmed my feral heart, and when I returned two days later there was a much kinder, less frenzied note apologizing to me and letting me know that this person who had parked in my space, did so without knowing that there were indeed allocated spaces for the building residents.

Boy... sometimes, when the rain is down and the light is gray, I can be this earth's greatest ass. I wrote a following note, apologizing for my behavior and my tone. But it's hard for me to shake the fact that I overreacted. I do that a lot some times; with characters at work, people on the road, people in the gym. I'm not sure why. I have always been a sensitive, emotional person. Not so much that I'm a frantic wreck, but more so I feel, and my feelings run very, very deep. When I am in love, every part of me, from heels to head, heart to mind, is absolutely in love. It's the same thing when I'm happy, or sad, or angry. It helps me in my work, but sometimes it can back fire in real life.

Just goes to show you, and me, we all have room to learn. All it takes is a little humility and a lot of courage to realize this very simple fact of life.

The dumbest people in the world are those who think they know everything.
