"Gosh, Monte, why do you always have to needle Shorty?" "Needling folks is what I do!"
Monte Walsh and Shorty were good friends even though they ended up on the opposite sides of a gun fight. Monte Walsh is a great movie because it shows a lot about human nature and the frailty of man. There are no bad people in the movie, only good people gone astray.
I enjoy lively banter. I enjoy needling folks, especially folks that don't have a sense of humor. My needling is always intended to be good natured. However, I have concluded that my banter and needling has caused harm and ill-will. I get myself into more trouble than I should. My opinionated sob nature shows through unfortunately. I don't mean to be that way, I just am.
Trying to do better. I have deactivated my face-book account. Maybe that will help.
