Me, a level-headed radical?


Today, I was described as "a level-headed member of the radical group". It wasn't meant to be insulting, and I didn't take it as such. It did, however, take me by surprise. I have never considered myself to be "radical" in any way - overly rational but never radical. Interesting.

When I reacted by surprise to "radical", someone else said I was "outspoken" - which I've also not considered myself to be in most cases, unless I felt something was wrong or unfair in some way - or maybe she meant "outspoken" group...?

Yes, very interesting.


Well, you have a public blog. That's pretty radical.

You raised a well-adjusted son, I think. How many parents do that?

You certainly don't follow any trends - you do your own thing. Being independent is radical.

You support legalizing some drugs and prostitution, or you're at least willing to see it tried, right? That's radical!

You have more potted plants at your house than Saudi Arabia has oil. Radical, indeed...

Hmmm, with the increasing number of people with one (or more!) public blogs, I'm not so sure that's considered radical anymore!

But you're right on the other points! especially the potted plants.
