sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.
write about a time you taught someone a lesson you didn't want to teach.
the scintilla project, day 3
it has never happened.
there have never been children to be grounded. cats and dogs walk all over me. i am the wussiest of all wussies. even now, even in the thinking of have i ever wanted to?, and finding yes for an answer, i know i won't. even now, in the thinking of the times of almost, i laugh at myself. those almost times would've made situations harder for others, never for the person for whom the lesson would've been intended. and so. i haven't.
am i overdue? when i began to type these words, i thought yes, but here at this sentence, i think no. i feel no need to teach anyone anything. i have grown to accept less . . . wrongs . . . from people, but there is no point in pressing the point. i have learned to say no, but that was a lesson for me.
