You have heard about my sarcasm bone, but have you met my alternate personality? I call him Judgy and every once in a while when my ire is up he comes out.
For most of my life I was unaware of his existence. I really thought I was a sweet person. Then I started writing.
I have come to know this Judgy character pretty well as I have reread my drafts. You may think my wit is a little biting in print…but you should see the things I don’t publish!
The pieces that don’t make the cut have titles like “Sorry or Just Plain Sad” or the piece I was working on today “Until It Happens To You”. I got the blog finished. Then I proof read it and said “Oh surely not!” I trashed it realizing Judgy had struck again.
It’s not that I totally disagree with him, mind you. Sometimes Judgy makes good points; It’s the way he makes them that leaves a little bit to be desired. Just an aside, anytime you read a blog and things around you begin to spontaneously combust, it’s probably not a good thing.
So Judgy has to go. He must be assimilated and his more vitriolic qualities must be done away with. I want to speak the truth but with love alone. I suppose he’s not just going to keel over dead tomorrow though. So if everyone once in a while Judgy pops out please accept my apology in advance!
If you had an alternate personality what would it be called?
