“Ren-e-gade (adj.) – 2: having rejected tradition: UNCONVENTIONAL”
So what is more cathartic? Saying “FUCK YOU!” (or “fuck you”) to someone or simply and silently giving them the finger. Case in point: this morning my SO baited me with a comment as I was leaving the living room. As soon as his comment hit my ears I spun around fully prepared to say fuck you until I saw him smile. What a roger!! I decided instead to give him the finger – with an equally magnanimous smile. LOL
His comment of course was a way of “fucking” with me. He often defends himself with – “gee hon, I was just fuckin’ with you”. And I know this to be true because I know he lives in the world of a roger.
How did it make me feel? Giving him the finger? Oddly very good. It felt good because it’s a thing I don’t often do. Now yelling and/or screaming, “fuck you” while driving (with variations to include “what the fuck”, “you fucking moron” – said both ways – the 1st putting emphasis on “fucking”, the 2nd putting the emphasis on “moron”, etc), that’s another story. But that behavior has been almost nonexistent since moving from outside the nation’s capitol to this little ole lazy beach town.
Tell me – who/what determines the ultimate value in a gesture or comment, a song, blog, book, video or movie….. ? Who/what possesses the “right”, the “correct” interpretation. Can there be a “right” or “correct” interpretation? (NO, I am not baiting the rogers out there. Honest. LOL) Is method of delivery important? Does it matter whether people know each other? What the heck is it about communication that stymies some folks? (see, if everyone knew about the Doctrine there would be precious few “communication breakdowns”.
Today I dub “Tip Your Hat Tuesday”. That’s right, I’m tipping my hat to all those inclined towards contributing creatively to the world. To every last one of you, Renegades All.
