a brief thought...

Upon saying something insulting, accidentally or on purpose (to be funny), I find that the quickest and most painless way to smooth things over is to follow up the remark with:

"That's a Beatles song, it's a compliment."

you'll justify anything if you can get away with it, won't you?

I say, "just kidding" because, you know, everyone feels better after you say that.

melody- i like how you took my peacemaking contribution to the world and turned it against me in the form of a sharp knife. i may not be bleeding on the outside, but it's the heart that counts.

If only Melody had inserted something about the Beatles, your feelings would be in tact, I'm sure.

Wouldn't a true peacemaking contribution be to not say the insult in the first place, rather than using some veiled pop-culture reference to try and evade responsibility for the pain said insult causes?
