Insult to Injury
This morning I was playing with Ellie the puppy. We were playing tug of war. We dropped the rope and as we both lunged forward one of her nails skidded down my forearm slicing it open to bleed. Did not hurt but sure is a pretty red half moon tattoo. The hazards of taking blood thinners.
A little while later my daughter's boyfriend was playing with the dogs and getting them all riled up while she and I just looked on. I was in my recliner with the foot rest up. The monster puppy decided to get away from him by jumping on my legs to jump on the couch and my computer went flying. Nice scratch and bruise on legs and one foot Thankfully my computer survived the trip across the livingroom. My daughter demanded that the boyfriend stop playing so rough and getting them all riled up. The boyfriend was restless and excited in waiting for the Superbowl game to start. A little hyper.
My daughter and her boyfriend where speaking about his family and their types of craziness. I was just listening. My daughter turned to me and said "you must have and addictive personality mom". I looked at her for a moment then smiled and said 'ouch'.
I am so angry with myself that I did not say what I wanted to say which would have been: 'Oh how long have I been in a coma? Must have been years since I don't remember you getting a degree in psychology." Or I should have told her that she really should read up on addictive personality types before she goes around hurting people with such a statement.
I know for sure I am not addicted to being insulted. I hate today so I am going to bed. I am on the verge of being weepy and I don't want to be. God I am tired of it all.
