Dear All, Please Step Off! Thank You! XO

When was the last time you got mad at somebody? I mean, like, really mad. You got in their face, called them all sorts of expletives, read them some sort of riot act (because they undoubtedly deserved it) and left them curled up in a ball in the corner, shaking with fear and horror.

You have to think about it, don't you? In fact, I bet you can't remember. I (unfortunately) can. It was just last week actually, and I remember it pretty well because it was the first time I'd gotten that angry in a long time. I won't go into the gory details - frankly, you'd be bored - but suffice to say, I'm still a little shocked by the whole thing.

I'm just guessing here, but I'd be willing to wager most people have similar experience. That it to say, long periods of emotional restraint punctuated by the occasional furious outburst. Those outbursts are necessary, but often times they're not enough. We all have other outlets. Some people exercise. Some people form addictions. Some people withdraw. And, some people leave notes.

Incidentally, that may be my new favorite website, for reasons that are, as yet, unclear to me. And no, I'm not the "Eric" who signed off on this particular novella. I have much better handwriting, and I'd like to think I'm not that much of a sanctimonious bastard.
