Heady Drama

There are always pros and cons to everything in life. I myself enjoy balance and justice and the thought that the pros and cons will reach a moment of synchronization and everything will be equal. Alas that NEVER happens.

I recently posted about a “dramatic” episode in my life. And as many people interpret drama in different ways I would like to define what drama means in this situation. This is NOT the drama of a failed relationship that lasted a total of one whole week (girls you will remember this from junior high). It is NOT the drama of wearing brown shoes with black pants (this is a fashion faux paux). It is NOT the drama of a highly exaggerated story with tidbits of extraneous information thrown in for drama’s sake.

No this drama is true drama, the drama of great Greek literature where the future stands on the precipice of one action. Where actions have consequences that are far reaching and final. The drama that can define a person’s life and their future. This is the drama that rises above pettiness and spite and is internal and external, harsh and yet clear, drama that reaches into who you are and calls you to stand up and speak for your integrity.

This is the drama I speak of. This is the drama I currently fine myself intertwined in. This is the drama that I can speak of in general terms but must not give specifics.

This is the drama that causes my equal balance of pros and cons to be skewed. One great pro of my blog is that I can write what I want and what I think. On big con (a good con no less) is that this blog is open to the world.

So I will keep my drama to myself and you can just know that Katie is in a world of drama right now and hopefully resolution and dénouement will come quickly.

you are in THIS kind of drama? KT, you're such a tease! how can you tell us that much and give us no more?

WE ARE NOSY, KT. please appease us.

i speak in plural because i figure that SOMEONE besides me will want to know. if not, i'm loud enough to be counted as at least two, so i can be plural if i want to be.

I will refer to BP fundamental #8 and refrain from making any specific comments.

You can email us! You have our emails! WE ARE NOISY... and NOSY! Fill us in on this Drama!

Is this a comedy like: a funny thing happened on the way to the forum... or a tradgedy, like Shakespeare's Hamelet or Romeo and Juliet... or Homer's the Oddessy?
It sounds like an ominous type of drama...

A Tale of Two Cities drama

And yes I may email you after the drama has subsided and I can present the total story . . . . .

I know exactly what you are talking about (not your particular precipice, but the situational quandry.) It's so stressful when your entire life is going to hang on one thing and you can't make any long-term decisions until it's resolved. Hang in there. Stick to who you are and it will work itself out.

On the bright side, if your drama is something that people find interesting, you could always write a book about it. Making money off your problems is nice way of saying "Screw you!" to kharma.

Regardless of the drama, you have some moments of truly sublime writing.

E-mail works for me!

Ahhh I just feel like I'm wrapped in a warm comfy embrace of camaraderie. It really isn’t as bad as everyone may think but it is bad enough to warrant some frustration, anger, maybe a few tears, and some exit strategies from my current situation. But in the words of Gloria Gaynor, “I will survive.”

Thanks EM for the compliment. From you that is very appreciated.

Did you make this word up? Or search for it in the thesaurus? Because I have never seen this before in my LIFE.

KT, have we talked about this drama before? Is it what I think it is?

Hello! You can't hold out on me like this!

Jes, did you not have to study that in Sr. English class in H.S? Katie you gave me a blast from the past on that one.

Jes, it's pronounced dey-new-mah.

Jes take a hint from my comment back to your first for a clue as to what the drama pertains.

Also the dénouement is a real word meaning resolution and is used in literature (it comes after the climax of the story). It was also the name of the Hangar band (back in the day of Saab, Wilson, and George) for a split second until everyone pronounced it den-u-ment with a Texas twang.

no, i was in AP English. That basically meant that we didn't learn anything, because were so "advanced". We just read lots of good books.

Actually, we read books and gave reports so that the other people in the class would know what the book was about without having to actually read it.

This is what they do in Terrell. Now you know why I am the way I am.

KT: you're making me research this? i mean, i don't have the BP Fundamentals memorized, like you.

I'll GO, FIND IT, READ IT,, again, and then come ALL THE WAY BACK TO YOUR SITE to leave ANOTHER comment.

uh oh. KT!

i thought they liked your blog.

must have details. now.

Jes I think you are misunderstanding. My drama has nothing to do with my blog. I have received no complaints on my blog. To ensure that I do not receive complaints I choose not to speak of certain topics on my blog. If I were to speak of the drama inducing situation I would be forced to break my rule of not speaking of certain items in an open forum such as the World Wide Web. I want to be discreet and keep my integrity and protect those things I hold in high regard from libel or slander so I choose to only vaguely speak of an item without actually speaking of the item.

well, if it's not about your blog, then what? you cited #8 of the fundamentals. #8, which was about a particular person who was fired from her job for her blog, and is now famous for it.

if not that, what?

KT. you know this kills me. i will try to be patient.

You have got to be kidding me!

KT is not talking about the situation at work on her blog so that someone doesn't accidently find it and fire her for Libel or Slander.

That is rule #8 and how it applies to this dilemma in which she finds herself.

Get it?

oh. well, now that you laid it out for me nice-and-clean-like, it makes sense.

of course, how do i know that YOU know why she's not saying anything?

nonetheless, i'll be patient and wait til KT is ready to talk.

that, or i'll drive up to Denton and pound her door down with my bare fists, demanding that she tell me and howling like a hyena.
