I am Not Stubborn!

Hat resting on the keyboard of a laptop computer.Writing socks? What a stupid idea. I have one pair of special socks – my Christmas socks. They’re about 20 years old and I’ve worn them about 20 times. I used to wear them thinking people would admire me for my wondrous Christmas spirit, my joie de vivre, my delightful sense of humor. In 20-plus years, nobody ever noticed my colorful socks. Turns out, Christmas socks, like writing socks, are a stupid idea.  I’m going to get rid of them…maybe next spring.

For a short time I did have a writing hat – stubbornly held on to it, until it started to smell bad, and it never did help my writing.  Another stupid idea.

I once had a boss who told me I was stubborn. Apparently she thought she had hired a “yes man.” I advocated for good ideas, usually my own, and held on to them until proven wrong, which even now rarely happens.

Stubborn? What does it really mean? I am not unreasonable, obstinate, inflexible or immovable, but when I’m right…I’m Right.

To label me stubborn is quite simply stubbornness in itself. Be reasonable for cryin’ out loud.

    I have Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Fourth of July, and a couple of other special socks. You are right – nobody notices them unless you point them out! Just taking up space so gonna sell them on the next yard sale coming up this Fall.

  2. I have a pair of Christmas socks too. They’re pink, old and worn out.

    When I wear them, I make people notice because I point them out.

    Darn, I love them and I do things like that in the name of love.

    Plus I love to see how people react whem I do that.

    It’s a good laugh.
