Ah, brings me back to when I got my hair cut in Chinatown of San Fransico.

  You were right there in junior high with all of us, Brosia, weren't you? Put your two cents in
--why can't we all be friends, and agree to disagree...we've all got our own minds. And are lucky to have them.

No darlin' I made my comments about Jimmuh's post and it wasn't accepted and so once again I was the scapegoat, the target of people's negative emotions.  I tried to be adult about it with Kyla and everyone but still I was nit picked at and so I don't see my actions the same way you do.  I was the only person who didn't find Jimmuh's post offensive because I took the objective route instead of the personalizing route.  I looked at it as a writer would and was actually surprised that it wasn't more offensive actually because of the title he put on it. 

I see you went back and reread it.  Different the second time around isn't it.  It's not about Asians at all..it's about language, the spoken language and how we humans, no matter what race, screw it up all the time and how different cultures get Americanese slang mixed up and to me that's funny because I have tried to learn other languages and I was really awful and got laughed at alot especially by my Swiss students.  So for me the piece was funny, except for  all the cussing but it was done in dry sarcasm and so that being understood one can read it the way it was intended. 

I think this problem is huge among people about understanding literature, humor in art.  Jimmuh's post may have been tacky and misplaced but WE CHOSE TO READ IT!  We opened it and read it and so we have to be the adults here and accept our responsibility in how we react to such a piece. 

so, no, I disagree with you, sorry, but I know where you're coming from and thank you for offering the peace pipe.

blessings,
ambrosia
