My Thank You to Everyone

I said, in all seriousness on Facebook, that I will get a tattoo on that ankle which says something like, "Sponsored by and with love." I already have a tattoo on the ankle. Obviously, surgery will ruin it. (And that's sad since it's my tattoo with dolphins and a shark(fin) in the ocean.) Well, I'm going to have to do something once that tattoo is cut up. So, I think I shall cover it and do one that remembers all of you and how much love you've shared during this episode.

I see the specialist tomorrow morning. I'll report in once I get his take on the injury.

so you have disposable income for tattoos? clearly your priorities are in line.

Dearest Anonymous,

Thank you for reminding me where my priorities should lie. My newest tattoo was the foremost thing on my mind of late—not repaying my 81 year old mother for covering the rest of the cost of the surgery/treatment, not paying the kindness of others forward, not doing what's best for my family while I recover and thereafter. No, I'm all about the tattoo. So, thank you, for reminding me about my priorities.

As for the gift of negativity you are offering, I must graciously decline it. You keep it. You need it more than I do.

You're right, my friend. That person is a douche.

Dear Anonymous,

As a fellow internet user and follower of this blog, I would like to offer an additional response to your posts, which have annoyed me for the following reason.

When I give a gift or compliment as "Anonymous," then that label does me honor. If instead I post snide comments from behind the safe shield of "Anonymous," then I am a coward with too much time on my hands and too little integrity or compassion.

So, before you launch more self-righteous sarcasm from your Anonymous safe haven, consider your own priorities/values.

To close in words I am sure you will understand: Own your words and show your face—or piss off.

regards, kb

I don't know if 'Anonymous' is the same one I commented on previously. I made a similar observation to Kristi and received another shitload of acrinomy. Must be a very bitter/twisted person.

I get the 'tattoo' is symbolic, just one way to look forward, to have some positive angle, some way to deal with and reconcile the current distress. I wish you all the best of healing and positive thoughts/energy. Having taken almost a year to recover from my own, ongoing left ankle injury, I have some idea of what you are going through. XX & hugs
