Defending my sense of humor

In 10 years I think I have only had one or two negative emails or comments about what I'm trying to do with Minnie Pauz, so I was kind of blown away when I read connie f's post on my March 5 blog post. You can read my response there too, but I don't feel like I said all that I wanted to say, so I was going to say more right now....but....

When I read my title, I realized that I don't have to defend myself except in a court of law, and since no one has sued me for laughing at myself (yet) or for causing them to wet their pants while reading my cartoons, I will hold off on hiring a defense attorney and just keep doing what I've been doing for 10 years...providing Humor Replacement Therapy!!

It's amazing though, how quickly we want to explain our point of view when even one person out of millions (yes, I've had millions of visitors to the website in the last 10 years) complains. We just don't want anyone to not like us or be mad at us. Is that just being a woman or is that from being co-dependant? I'm sure there are many of you that are NOT co-dependant, but how did you get that way? PLEASE tell me how!! I'm reading "Co-dependant No More" by Melody Beattie, so at least I'm aware of the problem, but this issue has brought up a lot of the insecurities I deal with on a daily basis and I want to concentrate on how to overcome the flaws that are holding me back from being all I know I can be! Sounds like I'm wanting to join the Army, doesn't it?

I have had enough positive feedback over the years that should confirm that I'm doing a good thing. You can read lots of it here. That's why I can't understand why one negative post can make me question the value of what I'm doing. (that is connie f's post, btw) that I've talked myself out of defending my sense of humor, what will today's post be about? How about this crazy daylight savings time thing? :)


  1. Hi Dee,

    Didn't realize you had a blog--I'm glad I found it via the message board.

    One question--why would you want to live in southeast Colorado when southwest Colorado is really much nicer?

    Don't question the value of HRT. Your humor is greatly appreciated.


  2. Judy....glad you found me. It's been hard for me to be more "me" here, so I wasn't broadcasting about the blog. I didn't want it to be exactly like the message board, but after 10 years, it was hard to separate myself from the MP persona. :) I'm still not totally comfortable here for some reason. It's like I have two different voices.

    One thing doesn't change though...I'm STILL menopausal. Can't believe I said southeast CO when the only place I want to be in is Durango! The 4 corners! Definitely south WEST! hahahah....

    Thanks for your comments and all the help on the message board! I hope you're busy and happy too!
