I never find silver linings behind my dark clouds.
Only silver-plated controversies.
Think I’m kidding?
And mind you, although there are skads of writing gurus on the internet who recommend “inserting a controversial topic” into articles to increase readership and engagement, I’m not a subscriber of this practice.
But some of you now think I am.
I understand your reasoning.
But it’s wrong.
With the hope of deftly tying both articles together in some kind of coherent conclusion for you (a big reach for me), I made the whopper of all mistakes by writing this exact sentence —
“I’m no fool.”
What I believed to be a mere safe statement of fact… I discovered otherwise.
Some of you now want to debate the point!
I guess controversy is like beauty; an “… in the eye of the beholder” kind of thing.
Trust me, I’m not strategic enough… or even well-organized enough… to insert a contrived controversy into the Encourager.
Maybe some day.
For now, all I can do is call my attorney and request that she inform certain individuals that we will be aggressive in protecting my reputation.
And once she stops refusing my calls – and only texting me about some bill still owed from 2010 – I’m sure notices will go out and this matter will be resolved quickly.
So let’s not let it ruin our weekend plans.
Hope you enjoy yours!
