Don’t Get Me Wrong…

Don’t get me wrong… We commonly encounter that phrase (or sentence) when reading blog posts on the web.

For example, “Cats are fabulous pets. Don’t get me wrong… dogs are adorable.”

I’ll admit I even used “Don’t get me wrong…” in my writing. But what does it exactly mean?

It could mean, “Please don’t misinterpret what I have to say…”

or maybe:

“What I’m about to tell you will most likely piss you off, but I don’t want
you to hate me for it that’s why I’m putting on a disclaimer: Don’t get me wrong.”

Not Just a Quote #1

I once thought of a clever way to send someone two quotes in one text message. Here’s how:

Hey ‘Random Textmate’, I never sent you a quote before. Here’s a single quote -> ‘ and here’s a double quote -> ” . See, I sent you two quotes in one message!

Even with the rather long name ‘Random Textmate,’ the message is less than 160 characters. You can try sending it to your friends, but don’t be surprised if you receive a rather unfavorable response, such as, ‘Corny.’

Oh well, each person has a different sense of humor. Humor is subjective, remember that.
