"My dear Miss Elizabeth, I have the highest opinion in the world of your excellent judgment in all matters within the scope of your understanding." Dear reader feels slightly different. Dear readers, a host of Mr./Mrs. Collinses! (Hostess, acually; as proper ladies I'm sure they would insist on the gendered form.) Here is a sample:
"I hope she forgives me my judgment. It comes from a place of love.”
I think I'm going to adopt that as my new meme. Even though it has this slight hint of the off-color; like that time we heard, from a nearby campfire, someone singing "Jesus, come unto me."
(Judgmental--but only because she comes from a place of love--lady to the left. On edit, this isn't really fair to Emily, over there. She isn't cruel, she's just a bit inept.)
Of course I have my own bizarre list of reasons to look down on others. Groups I feel free to mock: those that wear polo shirts unironically, those that listen to Herbie Hancock (sorry, George); those unenlightened souls that don't realize the color orange is a neutral; heretics--heretics, I say--that use salted butter. The list could go on. But my mockery should be forgiven, as it comes from a place of love, the place might even be a McMansion, even.
