Just A Florida Lizard Tippy-Toeing Through A Minefield!

Just my opinion! Just my experience!

I like to make comments; and the back-and-forth replies can be interesting, insightful and fun!

However! I have found, at least for me, that they should never go beyond three or so exchanges.

Why? Because eventually a nerve will be struck and the lizard brain will enter with a vengeance! It’s now about survival!

An example:

I ask two questions:

Do I sound uninteresting, uninformed and boring to you? Do I get my point across?

The answer?

Yes?

Let’s think about this! I guess I’m stupid and boring but I do get my point across!

Well, I just glossed over the first part and answered the second!

************

As a husband of almost 50 years, I have discovered that you can not gloss over anything!

My wife asks:

Is my backside too big! Do you still love me?

If I reply with one ‘Yes,’ well what does she think?

Yes!? My A$$ is much to big! But he say’s he still loves me!!!

From that moment on, I’m walking tippy-toed in a minefield with no place really to go!

Do you hear me now!?

************

Another thing that you avoid saying to a Sicilian, as much as possible is:

Well, that’s your opinion!

What?

My opinion!?

Pasquale ‘Phythoni’ Spitsarelli to the rescue!

Why you ask or think?

://///:

Well!

As a Sicilian you learn what and what not to say!

An example follows:

I think Tony ‘The Phony Poet’ is an Ass-Hole!

You would never, ever in a moment reply:

No! Godfather! That’s just your opinion!
