have a friend who hears something totally different then the words that have come out of your mouth? I have one of those friends. After speaking with me on a couple of different topics, she has determined that having children is awful (my pregnancy was awful, the end result is the best thing I have ever done) and apparently since I voted for Obama in the primary and then questioned my vote to her, means that I am voting for McCain and I hate the democratic party. I discovered this last weekend when she came over to have a few adult beverages.
The person who lives behind me put an Obama sign in his front yard. She wanted to go steal it and became quite upset when I told her I was not going to participate in this theft. I mean, I wouldn’t steal anyone’s sign out of their yard, whether they be republican, democrati or libertarian. It is just not something that I would do. She quoted back to me what I never said, which was that I hated Obama, was sorry that I ever voted for him and that I wouldn’t vote democrat if he was the candidate. I never said that. Why can’t people just listen?
