In the last 24 hours, 2 people have misued the voice that God gave them.
One incident concerns my baby daughter and all I can say is the woman involved needs to have her vocal cords jerked from her throat or a frontal lobotomy...I can't believer the nerve and utter crassness(is that a word? It is now.)
Kiereney Jo has broken out on her face. It's not any of the poisons(ivy, sumac, oak) and it is only on her face. She hasn't been outside except to get into the Jeep so I don't think it's weed rash. I surmise it's either a reaction to the adjustment in her meds or maybe the body still recovering from the roller coaster ride it's been on for the last couple of weeks. She has no other symptoms. Anyway, she and Kelli went to Wal Mart Thursday night and as she was checking out, this customer was walking by her on her way out and in a loud voice proclaimed, "What is wrong with your face?" Kelli was in another check out line and only saw Kiereney talking to someone. Kiereney was waaay taken back and finally started coughing(fake coughing) and said, "Oh, maybe it's because I'm just getting over meningitis!" and the woman gasped, backed away and quickly walked out of the store.
WHO SAYS THAT TO SOMEONE?
Kelli said you would really have to look hard to even notice it was on Kiereney's face.
I told Kathy about it and she said, "Bet you it was a Mary Kay makeup saleswoman. They are always scrutinizing peoples faces trolling for customers." Apparently Southern Illinois is booming with Mary Kay salespeople. I see quite a few pink cars(the company awards them the right to drive pink cars if they make certain sales quotas). I think it's wonderful they are out there working for a living but to loudly say something about a total stranger's face in a public place is waaaaay out of line.
Just made my blood boil when Kelli told me about it last night.
The next incident I need to preface by saying that I have ALWAYS been against the publicity of school/mall shootings because it becomes a "monkey see-hear/monkey do" or a contest of, "Gee, they only killed 6 people...bet I could kill more," and proceeds to do so.
And you already know from a previous post my love of the Kennedy family.
Hillary Clinton chose to refer to the June 1968 assassination of Bobby Kennedy today in conjunction with her discussion of why she is not giving up the presidential race. Something about her husband didn't win his presidential nomination until June and Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June, making the clear-as-crystal but yet unspoken in as many words message that she'd better hang around because, who knows, Barack Obama could be assassinated and she would then move into the Democratic Presidential candidate position.
That reference to Bobby Kennedy's assassination was so out of line in my humble opinion for many reasons, but the fact that the 40th anniversary of his death is just around the corner and the family took another hit this week with the news of Edward's malignant brain tumor. They didn't need her reference to another Kennedy tragedy on the tail end of the news of Edward's medical problems less than a week ago. Very thoughtless on her part.
Plus, we have three categories of nominees that are running that have never run before(an African-American, a woman and a senior citizen) and not all are happy about that. Let's not publicize the concept of assassination. It doesn't deserve it. There are many people out there with mental disorders who would view the press coverage of what Hillary said and interpret it as, "Hillary's talking about assassination...let's go blast away the presidential candidates!"
In summary, does anyone think any more before they engage their mouths?
Thinking About Perception - Thanksgiving was truly lovely this year. Jess and Bob hosted and for the first time in twenty years I was lazy and did no cooking and little in the way of...
