when my mom took care of babies my favorite story is about this toddler named eli who took a while to talk and everyone was concerned about it but one day my dad was like “eli, can you say ‘car’?” and he looks at my dad and goes “yes, i can. why do you ask?”
Wow it was just a question, curious as to why it'd have to be up to the other person to "mend" things as it were. Just trying to get to know you. Clearly after that response, why would someone try to reconnect. (which wasn't my intention to begin with.) I guess it's about time to then off this anon function now, isn't it?
Ohh, lordy… this is how it’s going to be, eh?
Let’s get something straight: at no point, in the time frame of this sudden surge of Anon messages seemingly curious about something rather trivial, have I made any kind of comments or posts referring to possibly “reconnecting” with anyone. No, it was of your own volition, Anonymous Messager(s), to pursue this line of questioning and persist with it; getting upset with the responses you receive are all on you.
And, also, if you’re going to read said responses, do me a favor: actually readthem. I have not said “It’s all on you, bro” when it comes to any reconnection (hypothetical or otherwise); all I havesaid is that, if said reconnection were to take place, I would have to know with whom I was reconnecting. I don’t think that’s an unfair request - unless, that is, you just happen to be the shaded circle with sunglasses. (In that case, I do not recall having had a connection, thus severing it and then needing it to be reconnected.)
My thing is, if we’ve parted ways, you get on with your life and I get on with mine. There is no expectation or responsibility I am putting on another person about any kind of hypothetical “mending”. So, please, be sure you are comprehending the words I’m putting down correctly, before making such ignorant comments.
So, for both our sakes, if you’re going to continue with the “smart” Anons, seemingly calling me out for some such nonsense, actually learn and try to fit the part. Stop wasting both of our times, and go read a book. Or step out into traffic, I no longer care.
Different anon here. I haven't looked at your blog in a while now, but damn man, you sure are snarky now. Hope that smart ass-ness hasn't pervaded your everyday self because that would be tragic. Cheers
Quite frankly, this whole “Anonymous” thing has gotten a little old. If you’re not asking for yourself, Anon, then why are you asking? And annoyingly persistently, I might add…
And, honestly, I’m not the one suddenly flooding an inactive Tumblr Inbox with hypotheticals. If I’ve had a falling out with someone, especially from Tumblr, it’s been quite a while since and, as I’ve mentioned in one of the previous responses, a lot has gone on - especially in the last six months.
So, please, give me a break and quit whatever game this is that you are playing. If you are the person who would like to reconnect, then reveal yourself and we’ll talk like actual people; not someone answering to a faceless entity, because that gets a little old very quick, especially in these circumstances.
And if you have no intention of coming out of the proverbial shadows, please be kind and stop wasting both of our times. There’s only so far I can take this cutesy “mystery”, and we’ve reached the end of the line.
Hopefully your next message, if there is a next message, will have an actual face to it. If not, I’m going to have to turn off the “Anonymous message” function. Thanks.
Who was the last person you had a "falling out" with on tumblr? Would you talk to them again?
At the risk of potentially screwing up a possible re-connection opportunity, I’m going to answer the important question first; which, of course, is the second question.
Of course I would talk to whomever it was I’d last had a “falling out”. In fact, even if that person wasn’t the specified “last person”, I’d still give talking to them a chance.
Now, unfortunately, I don’t remember enough to properly answer the first question - it’s been one helluva six-month period for me, to say the least - but that doesn’t mean that anyone with whom I’ve experienced a “falling out” doesn’t matter to me anymore. It just doesn’t work like that.
Dear Anon, I have the feeling that you might be someone with whom I’ve had such a “falling out”. If that’s the case, feel free to message me as you. Not obligatory, but I promise: I will not bite. And if that’s not something you’re comfortable with at the moment (sending me a you-message, I mean; not the lack of biting) that’s up to you.
I only say this because the last few Anon messages I’ve received have had this kind of subject wrapped around them. I’m not going to leave that unacknowledged. So, yes, I’d talk to anyone with whom I’ve had a falling out.
