  •  Oh no. That's actually pretty normal behavior. (5+ / 0-)

    I was referring to those who make insulting comments to others because they are drunk or use being drunk as an excuse to do so.

    Anyone can make comments that can be misunderstood or mis-stated and we all do from time to time, but those can be cleared up easily enough.

    More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?

      and I do -- it's after 10 pm, and I've probably mentioned that I've been drinking. I'm usually confused and not punchy. Also, my spelling gets cruddy.

      Feel free to ask me if I've been drinking and suggest it's bed time (I drink to help me sleep).

      Thanks!

      •  Oh I didn't intend to make that big a deal of it. (3+ / 0-)

        And I just added it at the end because I've seen hundreds of fights over the years where people attribute it to drinking.  I know that many people drink as they post and I don't see it as a problem unless it involves fighting.

        You are so kind and such a good sport and so articulate that I can't imagine reading a disagreeable/objectionable comment from you.

        Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.
