Scott Lee said the best thing to me last night. We (well, I) frequently hold up the imaginary mirror and give the person a glimpse of how they are seen. I asked Scott his opinion about something that had recently happened and it opened up a broader discussion of how people see me.

He said I'm polarizing.

What a GREAT freaking word to describe me!! I love it! It is SO totally true. He expounded to say that people are either repulsed by me or attracted to me, and sometimes even at the same time. He used other opposing statements like this, but they elude me now. I thought this was great. So true. He also said that I often seem to deliberately try to get a specific reaction and he sees it happening and never knows how it's going to go. Loyal Readers may know this reaction as the Full Heather Jacket.

It's true. I do feel myself putting on the show, and as recent drunk videotape has proven -- it ain't pretty. But, I know I'm going to keep on doing it. I can't help it.

Polarizing. Just so awesome. I am sure my opinion is biased because of who said it, but I may literally be my favorite thing that anyone has ever said about me. Seriously. It completely encapsulates my facebook tag "I'm not for everyone." Tina and I have both said about our husbands that they are not for everyone, but they are the only ones for us. It's true. Maybe they are polarizing too?

And really, on a skew tangent -- who has time to have these kinds of discussions? Our lack of children gives us this regular opportunity for self-indulgent naval gazing (as though there are other kinds) and we don't even use our powers for good.

As my first entry says, I don't want to talk about it -- but I guess you should know it's there. My other blog,
