In the past, when I have had red eye (which I am prone to developing because I’m on anti-coagulant medication for the rest of my life), I have asked people to please pardon my appearance.
I assumed that
- people were bothered by my appearance and
- I needed pardoning.
No more! From now on, whenever I get red eye, I shall ask for no pardons. Why should I? After all,
- I am appearing as best as I can,
- I love the color red, and
- nobody’s appearance needs pardoning.
I am also not going to ask you to please pardon the appearance of my latest photos.
I’m also not going to ask you to pardon the appearance of last night’s special at the Birch Street Bistro in Roslindale, Massachusetts, which was delicious.
Personally, I find it very freeing to stop asking for pardons about appearances. Does anybody want to join me in that?
Here‘s “Guide for the Perplexed” from PARDON OUR APPEARANCE by The XVIII Century Greats.
I like the appearance of that dog and I look forward to your appearance in the comments section, below.
Please accept the appearance of my gratitude, here and now.
