I think weird is normal too, but these people obviously haven't got the memo. It's like they're standing behind cut-outs of themselves. But there's a chess club and those people are pretty cool. It's just the choir where all of them are so... fake. If there was a reunion, I probably wouldn't go. It'd be an annoying party where everyone doesn't remember me or thinks I'm someone else.

Exactly! How did you find the words to put it so clearly?

Hmm...how did I eloquently phrase that? I always wondered if someone would ask me that and what would I offer as a potential response. Honestly, it's a fusion of SOOOOOOO many reasons! Not to Letterman it, but the very top reason would be that it happens so much...I'd probably go flatline if I were to receive the Kelly Ripa/Michael Strahan appreciation for doing what I was supposed to do in the first place.

Honestly, the part about buttmunchers made me bust up. And then everything else you said was spot on too.

Oh, well....I guess I swung and missed there. Thanks for the compliment! :D My ego just got pumped up a couple of notches. To be honest, to call someone a jerk seems more like an understatement to me. So, I take the Beavis & Butthead approach. Especially when I'm at a red light and someone stops WAY TOO CLOSE behind me. I'm like "Hurry up! I got to get away from this buttmunch behind me!" This is starting to sound like the dialog between Edward Furlong and Arnold Schwarzeneggar.... :|

There aren't enough clean insults to use, unless you're creative. Stupid, Idiot, Jerk, and Moron are all a little overused and old. I think buttmuncher is now on the top of my insult list. Tailgaters are so rude. Literally, though, I guess their car really is butt-munching your car's backside. :lol:

I am new to this site, this writing world but I did like your poem. I hope you dont mind that i added a small ending to it. I dont know if thats allowed so forgive e if it isnt. I know its your poem and when i read it the second time this line came to mind. Just a thought."anything to get that chance" Please remember I am very new to this site so please dont be mad at me for that, I am on here to make friends and your poem was the first I read. Good luck with your work, as soon as I find out how to add some of my poems on here, I invite any/all comments. Thanks Darlene

Welcome, Darlene! I'm not mad. This is a site where you make suggestions to help each other. If we didn't help each other on a writing forum, where would we be? Of course, it's up to the writer to accept any suggestions, but you're good. Nice to meet you!
