It's been a long time since something I've written, typed, emailed, or posted has been misconstrued or found offensive. So long, I guess, that I've become a little bit sloppy when it comes to making sure a "joke," however lame or possibly tasteless, is obviously a joke.
I'm reminded, right now, just how badly it makes me feel to think I've annoyed, insulted, or otherwise come-across-other-than-as-intended to anyone. That is never my intent. But I take full responsibility for any discomfiture that may have arisen from my failure to communicate clearly or appropriately.
