With all the heat boiling around this place in the last couple of days, here is an example of how an unintended mistake can lead to misunderstandings which further fan the flames.<br><br>I read an excellent post by Celandine but somehow overlooked her name and avatar, and all the time I thought I was reading a post by Cherry. I replied to it complimenting Cherry, whom I thought was the writer, but of course the reply went to Celandine who was the actual writer. Confused? <br><br>Well that little error on my part gave the impression that my post was laced with sarcasm toward Cherry, and that I was implying sockpuppetry to Celandine. It was NOT intended to have that effect!!! I really liked Celandine's post. And yes, Skul, I do think that both Cherry and Celandine "walk on water." So there! They are two of my favorite posters, and I am really sorry to them and anyone else who misunderstood or was offended by my intended compliment. <br><br>See how easily things can go wrong?<br>- David the Klutz<br><br>
It happens sometimes David but knowing Cherry and Celandine I doubt there were any hard feelings probablyl a grin or two ...... I'm not confused a bit..well I don't think I am..lol When I make a mistake I just blame it on my sock puppet...<br>...<br><br>
Oh My Goodness! <br><br><br>I didn't see this until just now.<br>David PMed me the apology a while ago,<br>and I responded that there wasn't a problem.<br>and that I understood the mistake, and was very glad<br>to have it cleared up & behind us. Also that it now opened<br>an opportunity to become friends, because that's what we do.<br>make friends one at a time.<br>It's one thing to address the forum, but the next level of trust is when <br>we allow our masks to slip by addressing each other one on one in PM. <br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green>
