I get hate mail. Not a ton, but I do get some.
I read it and usually delete it immediately.
I'm always amazed that, upon seeing something they think sucks, a person would take the time to write an e-mail.
There's a lot of shit out there. Why take the time the time to insult all of it? It seems like a colossal waste of time.
Perhaps you feel like I need to be knocked down a notch or two?
I'm floating too high and deserve a barrage of typed-out sticks and stones?
Fair enough, but instead of knocking me down, why not come up and join me?
'Cause, I'll tell you what… I'm collecting the sticks and I'm assembling the stones.
And I'm building a fort so strong you bust your head open trying to hurl your insults at me.
And I hope you're head does get bust open. Figuratively, of course. Because whatever anger you're feeling towards me only exists in *your* head. You are angry at something you see in me.
Good luck "busting your head open" and figuring out what it is.
Yours was the most angry email I've had in a long time. Whatever I brought out in you, I'm sorry.
