If Z had a hammer

Oh dear, oh dear - now my Latin wannabe says I have dealt her a sledge-hammer blow. I think she's taking this too much to heart and have told her so. She says she hopes I feel uncomfortable, but I said I don't, although I'm sincerely sorry for disappointing her.

I think she's a little odd. Thank goodness she will never want to talk to me again.

I'll be back later, I'm just off to a funeral. The second this week - doesn't it always happen like that?

If she persist, you have permission to use either of the phrases I placed in your comment column yesterday.

Honestly, arse - stick - up, etc. At least that's what I thought yesterday. Now I think she might be deranged.

Z said...

Thank you Dave. I think it could make matters worse, but it's quite tempting.

I don't get her at all, Arabella. It's just too trivial.

Sorry about the funeral, not the same one twice I assume.

Z said...

Thank you Brom and, er, no. Though one day I'll describe my mother's funeral, which seemed to go on all day - it took hours.

Ok, here's how it is. This poor woman has obviously spent her whole life feeling as if people don't like her. Now, because she feels like this, when she invites people to do things, a) it is very important to her, and b) her expectation pre-empts the way she asks people. Then of course they say no, which for a normal person wouldn't be the end of the world, but of course, for her it is really major, and she can't understand why people are so horrible. I feel sad for this lady.

But I wouldn't want to do Latin with her either...

Darling, you are exactly right and the same thought came upon me worryingly this afternoon. I was afraid to say it because it sounds horribly egotistical, but I suspect that she liked me and now feels doubly rejected because she perceives me as popular (which is a shock to me, to realise that's how I'm seen, but I'll be brave and admit it, with the 'of course' that I don't deserve it and it's all a front) and wanted to be responsible for something I'd be happy to be involved in.

But for one thing I've burned my boats with her (thank heaven) and for another, I don't want to bloody do Latin lessons right now. If I did, I wouldn't want to do them her way.

I've just this minute finished watching Horizon, because I was out on Tuesday. Not half enough of you in it, but you were so polite. You're lovely, you know that?

How is your Latin lover different than your friend in the chair? How is she the same? I don't know. I was just wondering if the answers would be helpful to you.
