A Conversation

She said to me:
You are very angry.
I said to her:
I am very happy
despite my shame at being human.
And I think it is better to be angry
and eristic
than smug or (worse still)
optimistic.

With whom was this conversation?!!!

Wofl said...

A woman of my acquaintance who is a brainwashed worker in the Care Industry (i.e. a nurse) - the sort of sub-Christian person who sees anger as merely negative, and people like me as stroppy and possibly destructive because I am not 'constructive' (i.e. building whole edifices on wobbly 'humanist' concepts such as All Human Life is Worth Saving At All Times.

(sorry about the long sentence!)

I think that the saying Whatever floats your boat is applicable here.
As long as one's position is "working for them".

Not at all, it was a wonderful rollercoaster of a sentence with barely repressed anger:-)
