Dear everyone in particular,
Perhaps I haven't made myself clear. Under no circumstances will I abide by rules designed to make me a hostage to mankind, the greater good or, the damned word, society, in every sense, leaving me at the mercy of everyone but the most important person in my life: me. Practical selfishness is a virtue.
I don't care if you find me abrasive.
If you find me abrasive, you don't care enough to know me.
One can learn a lot from squirrels.
With sincere love,
P.S. - No, this is not directed towards you. (You, either.)
