Write. That is a complete sentence — a full statement.
Having learned how to write, it becomes an obsession. I still prefer longhand writing using the old cursive loops. Sometimes, I can’t write fast enough as fast as I think. I can’t write them all. Just as well, maybe it’s not that important. Yet, writing to me is a compulsion. I am a compulsive obsessive writer. Sometimes, I write on white space using my breath and a window. It leaves no trail. Poof.
There is a box full of spiral notebooks accumulation of my writings. I don’t read them. I write my thoughts to make room for more thoughts. I am not a writer. Nor do I want anyone to read my innermost thoughts. Hence, I started purging. Again.
If I had written negative about somebody else, and then they surprised me by behaving completely differently to how I had characterized them, I might say, “Well, they made me eat my words” (in hindsight, this may embarrass or even pleasantly surprise me. Should it’s embarrassing, I have to take back whatever negative remarks I made about them). Is it better to put my foot in my mouth or to eat my own words? Idiomatic.
Nowadays, most of my writings consist of groceries or a things-to-do list.
Nothing has been written that hasn’t been said before. So I use some writings as a quote and unquote. Quotes are better.
I recently used a quote and posted it as a comment on Donald J. Trump’s Facebook page.
"The SCOTUS isn't insane enough to be on Trump's side. He will lose again. This makes me happy. Trump is a horrible human being."
Note that this was posted previous to the SCOTUS decision. I truly have no idea how the Rule of Law will swing nor how SCOTUS will respond.
Much to my surprise and amazement, this comment received more than 1.5K replies, all inflammatory directed at me. Aside from that, I received messages via Messenger. Some visited my personal public FB page, left a trail of laughing and angry emoji. Some were bold enough to write comments. The good thing is that FB is smart enough to filter their comments. All I have to do is delete them. Easy peasy.
Read! Doesn’t anyone know how to read at all? It’s a quote. Geez.
One exception. One person read. One person really knows how to read. And I quote:
*Daamnn its sad over 1000 people never heard of quotation marks…youre almost famous now lol”
Wow! Wow…wow…wow…you actually caught the quote. You are the only person that paid attention to what I posted. If this is a lottery, you won the jackpot. I responded.
“Ya…it looks like [they] were screwed tho.” He responded.
Write. Read. Wrong?
