I have been getting some great feedback on this blog. I'm happy to provide you with a daily diversion. I told cousin Kathi last night that if I move people to laugh, cry or think I have done my job. But what if I cross that proverbial line of bad taste?
It wouldn't be the first time. My earliest memory of crossing the line was in 6th grade. I don't remember the exact infraction, but I do remember the teacher, Mrs. Cindy Flor, saying, "That is not appropriate." Or sometimes it would be, "That's inappropriate Mr. Plocharczyk." Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% positive I was in the wrong and Mrs. Flor was a great teacher. Its just sometimes I never see that damn proverbial line.
A big comedy mentor in my life, Danny Martin, from my days at the Muscular Dystrophy Summer Camp. His philosophy was, "It is easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission." This philosophy is best used in moderation I think.
But, I digress. I want to apologize upfront for anything I might say in this blog. And I mean really apologize, not like a pro athlete or a CEO apology when they say, "If you were offended/hurt I apologize." What they are really saying is, "For those who don't agree with me lighten up. I'm rich and you are insignificant to me, but my PR department felt this statement would help you feel better faster, by which you will return to buying my crap."
For those reading my blog. The opinions expressed here are solely my own. Well, I'm sure there are others who share some of my opinions. Like, I think adults who dress like babies are weird. That would seem like a popular opinion, so that opinion is not solely my own. I apologize for trying to horde opinions, really truly sorry, that's George Bush's job. Oops! I'm sorry for taking a jab at the President. I realize many like him, sorry Mr. Chaney, Ms. Rice and all oil company CEO's. Damn it! Sorry, I shouldn't go political that's just asking for trouble. I just realized I used the word "damn" twice. I, again, apologize this time for my salty language.
Apologizing, is not easy. I want to apologize for my poor attempt at apologizing, I'm sorry.
