Blargh! All my abilities with sarcasm cease in the face of a person that I need sarcasm to defend myself from! What am I to do?
Honestly though, it’s true. My abilities with sarcasm have vaporized since third year university when I made one of my roommates cry. No, it wasn’t intentional. I maintain that she was just a little oversensitive. But as of that point, I decided that maybe sarcasm wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. It seems to me that’s also the point at which I lost most of my guy friends. Coincidence? I think not. Anyways, now I could really use that biting sarcasm that used to get me through the day. If I could harness and control it’s power, I could obliterate my adversary with rhetoric.
This person practically accused me of being a cat lady, in a very mocking sort of way, and I had nothing. I couldn’t come up with any form of decent comeback. What has happened to me? I bemoan the day I swore off sarcasm completely. I need it to survive. There are two people in my office who are beyond sarcastic and when they dish it out, I can’t fling it back.
Note: The only time my sarcasm still works is with my father. I’m still trying to figure that one out.
