I acknowledge that pregnancy hormones may have me feeling a little more sensitive than I would be otherwise. Normally I would have just ignored this instead of acknowledging it in any way. I know I do not need to defend myself or explain myself to this ass. But I’m in the mood to address it, so here we go.
When someone comments on your blog post with the specific purpose of insulting you – that’s annoying.
When they respond to your reply by telling you you’re taking life too seriously (while adding another dig about your lack of running miles) – that’s extra annoying.
And when they haven’t bothered to read the “About” section at the top of your blog, the section that would have explained to them why your blog may not be exactly what they were expecting – you guessed it, it is extra, extra annoying. When they throw in not one but two digs about Americans – that’s just obnoxious.
Begin sarcasm font.
It’s not like I want to be out running or anything. Clearly I just want to mislead people and trick them into reading my blog.
It’s not like I’m already frustrated about the fact that I cannot run (when I always intended to run throughout my pregnancy) or that I have no idea if I’ll ever be able to run long distances again.
It’s not like I’m doing the best I can with what I am able to do, for my health and that of my unborn child.
End sarcasm font.
So, “Jonny,” I’m very sorry if my blog wasn’t what you expected. I’m very sorry that my recurring injuries and current pregnancy, which are preventing me from “running big miles,” are also preventing you from reading a blog post you would find interesting. I’m very sorry I did not get what you apparently intended as humor, and I apologize on behalf of all Americans for not meeting your mileage standards and taking life “to serious.” (I guess that was still sarcasm font.)
I’m also sorry that apparently your grammar sucks. Ever heard of proof-reading?
Intended as humor or not, I did not find these comments to be anything but mean-spirited. If you have a question, ask me. But don’t insult me. I really am happy to answer anyone’s questions. Please, feel free to comment on a post or email me! I welcome questions and feedback. But be polite and give a pregnant, injured lady a break, please.
And that is all the attention I’m giving to this.
