F is For...

This month I'm participating in the A-Z Challenge. (For more information, click here.) My theme is Anger MISmanagement. I'll be posting almost every day in April, skipping only Sundays. Let's see how I do!


 Today's letter is F.

Ohhh, I'm so tempted to... Never mind.

I wanted to think of something a little different, so I'm going with FLAME.

Flame, as I'm sure you know, is a slang term meaning a really angry email, blog comment, blog post, etc. (And it's often written in all upper case letters – LIKE THIS – which, as you also know, is the internet's version of yelling.) Why a flame? All bouts of anger are not resolved with physical violence, thankfully. Some are best handled – well, maybe not best handled, but handledwith words.

Thanks for your time.

  1. Shouldn't that flame be coming out of his mouth? lol....or maybe off his typing fingers? :)

  5. I say you should have gone for it. Although that may make me the devil on your shoulder this time. Also I was told long ago on the internet, caps lock is cruise control for cool.

  8. WHAT THE HECK? I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PEOPLE WHO FLAME OTHERS!

    I also can't believe I'm the ONLY person who hit the cap lock. I'm disappointed in your other readers. I hope you are, too. :)
