I don’t think it was meant to sound as mean as it did but I am still upset about one little comment from a family member. I’m not good at sitting still. I am not good at being around people. After viewing almost 2000 photos from my brother’s trip overseas, I was feeling a bit antsy. We couldn’t get the videos to play through the TV or the Blu-Ray and it frustrated me so I said something like, “I want to get going soon. I have stuff to do, I don’t want to be sitting around all day waiting for videos to play.”
It sounds like I was being rude but I said it in a joking way. Most of my family understood and agreed. Then came the comment from one of my less-close family members,”What are you doing with your day that’s so important that you don’t have time for videos?”
Ouch, ouch, ouch. OUCH!
I didn’t bother trying to explain myself. I turned bright red and stepped outside.
