Dear Commenter

Dear Commenter,

I really appreciate you taking the time to comment on my tutorial on YouTube.  I’m so glad you liked it.  I really wanted to be able to show people that things like that aren’t as hard as they seem.

I’m afraid I must apologize, however; I had no idea that my video would so offend your delicate sensibilities.  It honestly never occurred to me that my being willing to show others how to do something that seems overwhelming would have such a negative effect.  I’m sorry if my show of independence and feminine strength emasculated you.  I can think of no other reason why you would say what you did.

did take all proper precautions.  I used low-VOC paint, I was outside (it doesn’t get more well-ventilated than that) and I did wear a mask… though as you point out, apparently I didn’t wear the right mask.  Next time I promise not to spray the paint directly into my nose.  I also won’t hang my head over a pot of boiling paint and use it like I would a make-shift humidifier.  I think I’ll ask Santa for some common sense for Christmas.

It also never occurred to me that I was pregnant.  I’m so glad that you pointed that out.  As this is my fifth child, I really should know by now that pregnant women can’t at all be expected to take on projects bigger than baking cookies (how could we?  After all, we aren’t even supposed to be putting shoes on let alone leaving the kitchen).  Would it help if I assured you that the well-ventilated area I used to paint the co-sleeping bed was directly off of the kitchen?  It could be argued that I didn’t actually leave my domain at all (though I wasn’t barefoot, so I’ll give you that one).  In case you were wondering, a co-sleeping bed is something that is for the baby that I apparently put in mortal danger during this project.  I can’t believe that I didn’t once think of the baby while I was constructing a bed… for HIM.

I must take issue with your phraseology.  While most people called me “amazing”, “awesome” and “beautiful” (thank you Kristina), in comparison the term “tard” leaves a little something to be desired.

I wondered what kind of person would want to say such things, so I took a look at your profile.  I couldn’t help but notice that you have a very… interesting (and classy I might add) taste in videos.  I also couldn’t help but notice that, unless I am missing something, you haven’t bothered to contribute anything to your own account.  I’m sure you can’t what with all of the time and effort it takes to spread such eloquence around the internet. Commenting as you do is so much harder than coming up with original content.

Next time I think about helping other DIY women and moms out there, I will make sure to consult with you first.  I would hate to make you feel like less of a man by making you compare yourself to independent, creative, and confident women.  I’ll also make sure to keep any further nesting impulses to myself.  Oh, and lastly I promise to spread the word —  I wouldn’t want the millions of other strong women out there to inadvertently offend those such as yourself.

No hard feelings, right?

Hugs and Kisses!

Courtney

  7. LOL! You tell him Courtney! My favorite part, “As this is my fifth child, I really should know by now that pregnant women can’t at all be expected to take on projects bigger than baking cookies (how could we? After all, we aren’t even supposed to be putting shoes on let alone leaving the kitchen). ” You know the reason women are the only sex that can get pregnant. Because we’re the ones who can handle the pain! Rock on power woman!!!
