Life is too short to suffer fools gladly…

Take me or leave me, the choice is yours

Annoy me or aid me, the choice is yours

Defend me, attack me, the choice is yours

Befriend me or shun me, the choice is yours

Love me or hate me, the choice is yours

The last laugh is mine; I choose not to care

And close all the doors.

CHOICE | The narcissist hates being ignored

Ever feel like you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole?

Or found yourself in a surreal situation
that made you think “WTF just happened here?”

It’s been a weird day!
Have you had a similar experience?

Looking forward to your comments!

  1. I was so looking forward to that Super Moon and we were socked in with fog and clouds. So disappointing. It always happens when a sky show is due, whether I’m in Pennsylvania or South Carolina, apparently those clouds are following me! 🙂
    Seems the weird days are here to stay, I’m working hard to ignore it and go on with life, but I know the writing will tell all!
    Happy Thanksgiving week! Happy Reading and Writing! Just wishing you all happiness!

    1. Happy Thanksgiving, Yolanda! 🙂 Sorry you missed out on the supermoon. We saw it here on both nights, but never got that reddish tinge others experienced. Here’s hoping the clouds will lift for you!

  2. Oh gosh, yes, I have had these days and just shake my head. We have had a full moon and a big one at that so I believe the crazies have been out in full force.

  3. This month has been entirely like that. And I have relalized life is too short for regrets and negative people in life. I have removed many to keep my peace of mind but doesnt work out sometimes. I hope the month ahead improves things. 🙂

  4. I have to confess – my last WTF moment was when the results of the US Elections were announced 🙂
    I agree wholeheartedly though – life is too short to suffer fools gladly.

    1. That was my second to last one. 😛 Toxic people only serve to bring misery into our lives. Off with their heads! (Figuratively, of course. 🙂 ) Thanks for dropping in.

  5. You nailed it. The whole last two weeks felt just like this. lol

    I love that you’re the “doglady.” I’m a dog and cat lover and have a heart for rescues (to the point that I always write a rescued dog or cat into my novels). Thanks for making me smile today!

  6. I love Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit. It’s a perfect song for a surreal day. I’ve had those foggy days before and they always blow my mind…
    Surreal is a state of mind…and it’s one that I’d rather stay in some days! 🙂

    1. Hi, Michele; Yes, this seemed like a fitting song choice, at the time. 🙂 I was blind-sided by an unpleasant encounter, but at least I can laugh about it, today.

  7. I love the boldness of the poem Debbie. Being yourself is honestly a big deal in this world which is filled with fakes and yes-men. My day wasn’t to bad and I hope you have a better tomorrow, tomorrow’s are always good you know. Love and hugs 🙂

    1. Thank you, Kala. 🙂 I’m always “myself”. There are many toxic people in the world. Glad to know you had a good day. Mine was bizarre, but today I am laughing about it. That is the best medicine. 😀

  8. Nice post. By the time I saw Jefferson Airplane in San Francisco, they were called Jefferson Starship. I can think of some narcissists I’d like to put on a starship.

    1. Hahaha! I definitely know one narcissist I’d like to ship off into space. 🙂 Yesterday was a crazy day, but today, I’m laughing. That’s the best medicine. Thanks for dropping in, Denise.

  9. Some of my closest friends are narcissistic. Not me, though; I mastered the art of ambivalence, at an early age.

    My day was fantastic, other than driving four hours. How was your day, M’am?

    1. Narcissists only love themselves, don’t they? 🙂 Ambivalence can be good or bad, depending on the situation. I’m glad you had a great day, despite the long drive. Mine kind of sucked, hence this post. Today, I’m just laughing about it. 😀

        1. You did? 🙂 If you’re beaming, then it must be a good thing, but I’m a bit flummoxed, Myke. I thought “to frist” meant “to postpone” and these are the only meanings I found:

          (third-person singular simple present frists, present participle fristing, simple past and past participle fristed)
          (UK dialectal) To sell (goods) on trust or credit.
          (UK dialectal) To grant respite.
          (UK dialectal) To give a debtor credit or time for payment.
          (intransitive, UK dialectal) To defer; postpone.

          Then again, I’m not fluent in internet slang. LOL
