I have an incredible talent. It's called Foot-In-Mouth Disease. It seems all if have to do is open my mouth. And then . . . . holy french fries! People go ballistic on me! I mean they get so upset their blood pressure has the same pressure-wave signature of a tsunami!

A talent whih probably has kept me from getting published sooner. Now, if I could make money with this talent. . . . .

Dana. . . that made me laugh. No. . . not that bad. But close.

BR, you're reminding me of a letter a friend and old boss swears he once sent to someone who had pissed him off. It read:

Dear [whatever the guy's name was]:
Fuck you. Strong letter to follow.

Signed,
Dan

You weren't that bad, were you?

Thanks, I.J. And yes, I humbly confess, sometimes I do exaggerate a weeeee bit. But in this case, not that much.

Oh, B.R., that is like me. As everyone here knows well enough. The idea is to put it from your mind and move on. Yes, I know it's hard. Keep in mind we all like you. Plus, you're probably overreacting.

Oh, come on B.R., give us the whole story! What happened? I just love it when someone besides me says the wrong thing.

No. . . . . but say!? I could use that one when I get my next insanely idiotic rejection slip!!

Cripes, B.R., did you let the ol' F-bomb slip?

Dear F*cker,
Comment by B.R.Stateham on August 30, 2009 at 12:56pm
Made the wrong comment in some letter. Or asked the wrong question. Maybe just writing the letter to begin with.

How has this prevented you from getting published? Now you've got me all curious and such.
