Counting on you: Tell me if my jokes have tacit issues
It is frustrating for me to describe abstract emotions and moral issues. I feel ridiculous talking seriously on issues that I didn’t experience or are forgotten or can’t recall.
I need to be told personal experiences from others in order to recall or have a handle on what is being asked of me.
This conversation is a fiction, a daydream conversation with myself
She: I don’t know when you’re joking and when you’re serious.
He: As if I know. I’m counting on you.
She: come again, how?
He: When you laugh, it’s probably a joke. When you frown, you ferreted out a serious issue.
She: And you’ll be ready to discuss the issues?
He: No. Maybe your issues. Though it would be useful to know how you discovered and interpreted my supposed issues.
She: So you discuss My lame issues and Not yours.
He: correct. I figured out if we start with mine, you’ll quickly add so many on the list that the backlog will be too traumatic to work on any of them issues.
She: Will make a short priority list.
He: I beg to disagree. I find it more productive to select the easier and more feasible ones.
She: And why you jumped to the conclusion that my priority list is of the heavy guns?
He: We start with the simple ones and surreptitiously you gradually move the hardest to the forefront. I like to leave the hard issues to my next life. Or when age give me an excellent excuse to retire from life difficulties.
She: You certainly love your comfort and won’t take any risks to confront this nasty living of yours.
He: My comfort is to leave me with enough energy to tackles your issues.
She: You jumped to the conclusion that mine are harder than yours.
He: Just untangling your white lies from the darker ones is a full-time job. I’m Not trained for such investigative job of sorting out your ambiguous talks.
She: Not trained? And what you guys have always been doing? Legifering in our name?…
