I'm a flippant person in general. Now, more so than ever. Making a joke out of everything and laughing about it is my coping strategy. I laugh most when it hurts hardest. Simply because the alternate is so much worse. What I forget is that most people correlate laughter with happiness and flippancy with absence of caring. It's not true. I'm most careless with those I love. I hurt them, always unintentionally, because they take me more seriously than I take myself. And I forget sometimes that when people care about me they give me the power to hurt them. But because I care about you, when you hurt, so do I.
So I'm very, very sorry. What I said was only meant to be a slightly annoying, but a funny come-back to what you said. If the shoe was on the other foot, and you had said what I said to you, I'd probably be as unamused as you seem to be.
