I found this reblog of Rincewind’s Animated love –nsfw- post in my drafts folder last night. Before we continue, however, I want to explain why I never actually published this post back when I first created it. Without going into a lot of detail that I’m really not up for right now, it was because I was afraid it might offend my female readers.
I’ve written about my discomfort over how to behave in front of women many times on this blog, but, for those who haven’t read any of that, the short explanation is that it traces back to all the abuse I witnessed, that women suffered at the hands of men, while I was growing up. Simply stated, I’ve just never been able to get past the fear that women might perceive me as just another potential woman beater, and that, in turn, has left me the equivalent of an “emotional stutterer” when it comes to my behavior around them.
That feeling was brought back fully front and center last night, when I had to actually call 911 after being awakened to the sounds of a terrifying domestic violence situation going on in the apartment next door. No, these aren’t the same crazy neighbors I reported on before. This is a new couple, who, if anything, are even more violent than the last. I really didn’t want to get involved, but the noise was so disturbing (and loud enough, even, for my son to hear through his gaming headset) that I was afraid I’d end up wondering, today, if I should have done something, as I watched someone’s body being carted off.
Good grief! I really hadn’t meant to go into so much detail, but it was important for me to explain why I need a good laugh so badly this morning. Which, of course, is why I’ve decided to go ahead with this post despite my reservations. Besides, it’s been too long since I added something to my Oh Those Girls volume.
Anyway, not only did I find my friend’s post to be hilarious, but, once again, I was intrigued to see if I could reproduce, here on my blog, the kind of image layout that he manages to make seem so easy on his. Well, I never did really. Remember, this was before WordPress introduced that nifty new “mosaic” feature, and even that would fail in this case because the top two rows contain only one image…
DAMN, I really needed that! 😳
Believe it or not, I actually duplicated what my friend did by copying and pasting the part of his post that I wanted directly into my visual editor. Am I the only one who didn’t know you could do that?!?! 😯
I want ice water.
