Here’s the thing. I will NOT speak to you unless I feel either
a) it’s entirely safe.
b) it’s unavoidable, usually for some moral imperative.
I just won’t. I’ll figure you’re busy. I’ll figure you’re entitled to your opinion (unless it involves harm to someone.) I’m the Queen of MYOB. If you want to know what I’m thinking, ask me. THEN I’ll tell you.
So, if I have gone to the trouble of speaking to a total stranger and warning her against a plan of action, it’s because I REALLY REALLY REALLY didn’t think I could get out of doing so and sleep nights. And if I did that I lost at least 2 nights’ sleep over it anyway.
So JUST FREAKING LISTEN TO ME.
