All of what follows is directed at various people I love. The people who are in my life, the ones who, no matter what they do, will always be a part of me (unfortunately for them):
I know you don't like either one of my green dresses. Guess what?
I'm not giving them up.
I know you don't like it when my hair's 'in my face'.
I do. And I'm keeping it.
I know you wish I studied more. You wish I were more 'academic'. I'm not. I don't think it's safe to say I'll ever be 'academic'.
I know you wish I'd lose a few pounds.
Well, I'm not giving up chocolate. Nor ice cream.
And NO, I'm not switching to diet coke.
I know I can be a smart-ass. I guess you'll have to deal with it.
I know I sound arrogant sometimes. I honestly don't mean to be.
I do have a temper problem, maybe.
Let me just say; it's not my fault. I inherited it. Honest!
And I think it's fair to say it's under control now.
I might maybe be a bit moody sometimes, but I think I'm the easiest person you'll ever have to deal with.
What you see is what you get. You don't have to 'dig deep' or over analyze anything to know who I am and what I'm about.
I know it seems to you that I think everything's lame or cheesy or corny.
Oh, don't fucking kid yourself!
I might maybe offend a lot of (overly conservative, stick-up-their-ass) people, but come on! Overly conservative people were meant to be offended.
I am not the nicest person you will ever meet, but I'm probably the most honest.
I don't like it when people patronize me. It makes me be mean to them. When I say mean, I mean mean. (That sounded weird)
I don't like annoying sales people who think I'm blind and therefore are trying to sell me shit. I might be mean to them too.
Don't ever try to stop me being mean.
