Do People Take Everything I Say Seriously?
Today a certain "Benjamin Tang" informed me of the existence of people who apparently do take a lot of the things I say at face value. Since I have nothing else to do with my time right now, I might as well clear a few things up.
- Half the time, I open my mouth first and think later. I just operate on auto-pilot and say the first thing that comes into my head. If you spend a bit of time around me, you'll notice I have several canned comments I reuse when talking with people. This is because I'm lazy to come up with a unique riposte for each and every statement addressed to me.
- Half the time, I'm extremely sarcastic. I've developed this from my experience in Internet communities, where the best defense is a good sense of humour and a heavy dose of sarcasm. You can't take what I say at face value here.
- Often, I'm just fooling around. I've always been a joker of sorts, and a good deal of my declarations are often nothing more than cheap filler for eliciting laughs. You certainly cannot take my free, self-deprecating entertainment seriously.
Having said that, when I'm serious I'm serious. But it's still annoying to think that someone out there may just believe I'm a homosexual due to certain of my impromptu jokes/skits. I'm just kidding around. I'm not gay. I don't think I'm that much of a horny bastard, either.
