A Look at my Character

Over brunch yesterday, BigB & I were talking about character, in particular, my character. Now, it wasn't a bad conversation; we were having fun and laughing about it the whole time...jokingly discussion truths, I suppose.

So, my character, according to BigB is an (and I use a made-up word) uncontentable, treehugging, hypocritical vigal ante. Now, let me disect these for you because there is so much to what was said than meets the eye. I am uncontentable because I long to live on a farm just raising my children and caring for the farm in general however, having said that if I were on a farm, I would be fretting because I wasn't working and therefore, not contributing to the family. I am treehugging because more often than not I have more compassion for animals (and the environment) than people; my reasoning behind that, people can "chose" their own destiny-animals and the environment are at the destiny of peoples choices. I am a hypocrit because while I feel this way about the environment I would love to spend the afternoon 4x4ing through the mud in a huge gas guzzling truck and then go home to relax in my log house. (Heh, if you replenish the resources you use...). I am a vigil ante (spelling) because I am overly protective of my family and friends.

There you have it, my character, in a nutshell, according to BigB. I may add to this post but I am on my way to work and need to finish it now. Goodbye and have a great day.

Sincerely
The uncontentable, treehugging, hypocritical, vigal ante....

Too funny. Aren't we all a bundle of contradictions? I hate trying to classify myself any one way because beyond changing and evolving, I simply feel opposing feelings from one day to the next. I feel as though it's legitimate, but I can see how someone else might classify it as hypocritical. I love the way your husband classified you though. Very funny.

You got the spelling right, it's just that it's one word: "vigilante".

Thanks Marc. I am SO glad that you told me because that was really ticking me off...it just didn't look right and I didn't have the time to look it up...
So, thank you very, very much.
