Brief interruption.

Sometimes, someone will ask me about something I’ve posted and they’ll seem concerned or worried. Was I upset? Am I okay? It has led me to a realization. People take what I write seriously sometimes when I’m really being tongue-in-cheek or laughing at a situation.

So what do I make of this?

Well, first…I have great friends who care about me and worry that I feel hurt or sad about something I wrote. I am sensitive so I can understand why that might be. I thank my friends for caring. I’m extremely lucky.

Second. I must sound the same ‘in writing’ when I’m kidding and when I’m not. Now this is interesting to me.

I’ve always said that email and IM and text are terrible ways to communicate anything with depth. It’s very easy to read with a bias and misinterpret or just miss the nuances that you can clearly detect in a phone or in-person conversation.

Is this the same with blogs? Maybe so. Maybe so.

I’m going to work on this. I definitely want my friends to worry about me when I am in need but don’t want anyone unnecessarily concerned when I’m fine!

Back to my regularly scheduled weekend.
