Today's word of the day is Rumor. According to Webster's, it is a "statement or report without known authority for its truth".
In my 30 odd years of walking this Earth, I have never been involved in rumor. Whether being the topic of it or the one spreading it. But today, of all days, I was in the middle of it.
I personally believe that rumor or hearsay is tantamount to gossiping, which I think is a low form of getting someone's attention.
I have never been so insulted in my life!!
But get over it, I did. I wouldn't say the same for the person who was also affected though. The other person, like anybody else, is fragile. Hearing something like that, add the "fact" that it came from me, is a blow, especially to that person. I talked to the person, assured that person that I never said anything like that.
Like I said, I got over it. From what I've noticed, the person, eventually got over it too.
Mending bridges is a tough thing to do, especially when its neither's fault.
I guess, that's life. You got to play the hand you're dealt. Unfortunately, it came today.
Rumor my ass. We'll see what tomorrow brings...

I am starting a "Word for the Day" motiff in my small part of the internet. These words are what I think encompass the day that was for me.
Today's word is Attention.
According to Webster, Attention is the sympathetic consideration of the needs and wants of others.
Attention. We strive for it. Hell, some people crave it.
And then there are those people who, after you've given them your whole undivided attention, flies like a bee to the next flower and gets their "attention".
Ok, I like the attention sometimes, WHEN its due. Not just because someone wants it.
I guess some people aren't just considerate of the attention that the other person is giving them.
Screw it! Time to move on.
I love BLOGs.
