Just Shut Up!

Did you ever have one of those days when you had a million philosophical thoughts running through your mind and just needed to express yourself to someone, only to be stifled mid-sentence? You sit there, not knowing which emotion to draw upon; embarrassment or anger, but feeling like a fool nonetheless.

Today just must not be my day, as this has already happened to me twice and it’s not even noon yet. The first time I was completely ignored; completely…totally…ignored, with not so much as an attempt to acknowledge that I had uttered a single word. This one pissed me off and started my early morning off on a bad note.

The second was just as harsh; a mix of condescension and patronizing tolerance, as I was told that while the subject matter was fascinating and would make an interesting topic of conversation, now was not the time. This one left me feeling stupid and foolish; for even attempting to broach a subject where my knowledge is limited; and wishing I’d just been ignored!

And to think…I woke up this morning with a positive outlook, an inquisitive mind and a need to share. Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to get out of bed.
