I won’t tolerate intolerance

20 Oct

Totally hypocritical title, isn’t it?  But it’s true.  I just can’t (or won’t) tolerate intolerance.  Well, intolerance plus a whole lot of other things.  I’ve been struggling lately with how to deal with people in my life with whom I have fundamental disagreements.  At first I thought I could just tell them to keep their opinions away from me, but then Foster pointed out that that’s the equivalent to homophobes saying “As long as I don’t see it, I don’t care what they do”.  It’s mildly asshole-ish to ask someone to hide who they are.  But what to do when you just can’t accept or deal with who someone is, or who they’ve become?  It’s something to ponder, and if anyone comes up with a good answer, I’d love to hear it.

Meanwhile, I feel like boo-boo.  (Boo-boo isn’t a good thing, in case you aren’t familiar with it.  It’s a technical term, ya know.)  Web MD says that I’ve either got a cold, strep, a foreign object stuck in my ear, or Cancer.  So glad they could narrow it down for me.  The plus side of feeling like boo-boo is that I don’t have much of an appetite.  Not only have I not gone over my WW points for the day, but I might even end up not using them all.  Which is a bummer, because those bad boys do not roll over.

I have, however, lost some weight.  And I purchased a scale.  It’s been hard to limit myself to weighing once a day, but I’m trying to not become someone who steps on it every time I see it.  I can still feel my double chin, though.  I’m thinking of naming her Debbie.  Like the snack cake lady. (I’d kill for one of those little cosmic brownies right about now…)
