Two for the price of one

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, two blog entries in one day. More entries could be forthcoming...I feel like I have a lot of material right now.

Now that I've slept on it, I feel the need to elaborate on yesterday's post. The day started out well. I met a friend for breakfast at Buffalo Grille. As I was placing my order, the manager of the restaurant told me I was beautiful. Suddenly, Buffalo Grille became my favorite restaurant in the world! He then pointed to my eyes and said "beautiful" again. By this time, I am feeling pretty good about life.

You would think this would get me through the day. But Pastor Gregg was right when he said "words wound."

Yesterday afternoon I was walking down the hall at my office and walked past one of my co-workers. He was standing near the mailboxes and had opened a package containing a book. He read the book jacket and then turned and handed the book to me. The title was Baby Proof. He said "Here, you'll enjoy this. It's a book for women who aren't going to have children."

I don't even remember what my response to him was. It was probably some sort of jumbled up sentence that didn't make sense. I just turned, walked straight into the ladies room and started crying.

It was awful.

Wow . . . I wonder if that guy had any idea what he was saying. He probably thought it was some flippant, no-big-deal thing, but as a woman, I'd be right there in the stall next to you crying my eyes out too if someone said that to me!

Laurie, I obviously don't know this guy, but that was a cowardly thing to say. It was said in bad taste, and it is NOT true.

You are beautiful, acceptable, and worthy of love. That is the truth.

I can't believe that! The nerve! I would have given him an earful right there--that makes me mad just thinking about it. Who does he think he is!?!?

I'm still mad!

You are beautiful! Remember that and forget the rest...

Not. Cool. At. All. That's all I've got to say about that.

I'm glad you have God working at your office. Funny, I thought He was up in heaven watching over you. But to think...he was right there at the radio station the whole time.

Laurie, that dude is full of bull. You know it. I know it. Everyone who reads your blog knows it. A very wise woman once told me, "I spread truth not lies." His tomfoolery does not deserve a spot on this blog. Lies, I tell you, lies!
