See That Thin Line Back There?

"You know, you have an issue with people touching you."

Wow ... just ... wow.

You know, the weird thing about that statement up there? Only people who know me intimately know how fucking wrong that is. I like to be touched ... a lot.

I don't have an issue with "people" touching me. I get hugs all the time. I give hugs all the time. In fact, I'm a very touchy person. I took a management class years ago that taught us that everyone has a circle of "personal space" around them ... and that we have to be aware of other people's comfort levels. I also learned in this class that I have a very small circle. It takes a lot to make me uncomfortable ... and yet ... some people manage to pull it off.

I liked to be touched. What I don't like is to be touched by people who make me uncomfortable. If I'm on your couch and your hand is on my knee? We are fine as wine. If I'm sitting at my desk and you lean forward and put your hand on my knee ... then you are running a high risk of me breaking every fucking bone in your hand.

I'm already wearing shirts that practically reach my neck. I only own so many turtlenecks. I can't do much more without joining an Amish community ... or buying a burqa. Only a few more weeks ... I can do this ... although I readily admit the probability of bodily injury seems to grow by the day.

"You have an issue with people touching you" ... what a joke. Buddy, if you only knew ...

At the door we don't wait 'cause we know them
At the bar, six shots, just beginnin'
That's when dickhead put his hands on me
But you see
I'm not here for your entertainment
You don't really want to mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
'Cause you know it's over
Before it began
Keep your drink just give me the money
It's just u + ur hand tonight

Pink - U + UR Hand
