Don't Assume

Since blogger is free I feel I can not throw a fit when it will not let me post a picture some mornings.

Don’t assume that because you’ve never seen me drunk, that I’m not totally capable of destroying an establishment and embarrassing you beyond belief.


Don’t assume that because I’m blonde I’m dumb.

Don’t assume that because I am female, I’m passive.

Don’t assume that because I’m over 50, I don’t “get it”.

Don’t assume that because I don’t jump out of my chair and choke you when you speak, that I in any way agree with what you are saying.

Don’t assume that because I’m sober, I’m well.

Don’t assume that because I live in a nice house, that I don’t know what it’s like to live on the street.

Don’t assume that because I don’t expose my political beliefs that I agree with yours.

Don’t assume that I believe you just because you “swear” it’s true.

Don’t assume that I’ve worked thru all my prejudices just because you say you have.

Don’t assume that I believe you about that either.

I know what ass-uming is. I don't ass-u-me much anymore.

Don't assume any of those things about me either. I love this post. Great points to ponder.

Well, I assume you'll have a pretty good day.
Unless you choose not to.

You're blond? You're over 50?

I would never have assumed you carry a Big Book with hand written notes in every square inch of blank page..but you do.

Assumptions are deadly for me, and yet I continue to assume stuff without even realizing it.

I'm so glad I am held in the program through ya'll and your powerful and graceful demonstrations and experience!

:) Love ya!
