Well, I didn't know what to post about this morning. All the while walking to work - cold no ass of course - I was racking meh brain trying to think of a topic. And I had one you know. But that got thrown out the window when I opened my inbox and saw what appeared to be a letter from Sampson Nanton. Apparently out of ALL the people who watch the pictures, forwarded them, blogged about them, and commented on them, he felt the need to respond to me. I'm posting the letter below, together with my response, and since I promised an apology for calling him a womaniser, I include that also. I apologise for calling you a womaniser. That comment was made based on the experiences of people I know and not my own, personal experiences with Mr. Nanton. I'm not usually in the habit of speaking about things I haven't experienced first hand so I take the comment back. Everything else I stand by because they are MY opinions and based on MY experiences. Everybody morning btw...
Hi Miss Hotie Hotie,
I've taken time to read your very interesting comments on the Manicou Report. I must say first of all I find them extremly humourous and delightfully thrilling. Your adamancy and persistence in your own views is actually commendable and I can only conclude that you are someone who would stand up for your belief if at the end of the day your belief results in the end of the world and leaves you alone standing. So funny.
I'm replying only to say that you are forever entitled to your views. I do not necessarily agree with anything you say and I see some other "bloggers" certainly disagree as well. But that's ok, my dear, your view is yours and you're entitlted to it.
Interestingly you said that I was in some way related to one of your friends, past or present. I need not ask who on earth that is, as it has been clear for a long time to me that many people jump on the bandwagon....I mean, look at you, I can't say I ever met you but you speak as though you're my neighbour. It's something I'm used to so I'm by no means offended and definitely understand your purpose. (Hottie insert: Samson doh remember meeting me?! But like - YAWN, stretch, scratch - but like ah losing meh touch!)
The picture of you playing mas is good and I certainly do not agree with the comments that you look anything like a man. That was wrong for someone to say. You're quite beautiful actually.
If in any of this you read, it appears that in any way I am showing any attraction in you, please forgive me. I'll forgive you for flattering yourself into thinking that you actually got me to respond, because you did, so be flattered. I'm sure you are someone whose spirit can never be broken by someone's words or poisonous beliefs. I can tell that because I am the same way, so as they say, great minds think alike. Or shall we say fools seldom differ, given the fact that you are adamant that I am a fool, a whole fool, and nothing but a fool?
The Modest Goddess, Miss Hotie Hotie, there's one thing I have learnt all my life about women who call my womanisers. Usually, they either not getting any attention at all, or not getting attention from the very person who they consider a womaniser. But as tempting as it seems my dear, you are just not my type. Wouldn't you of course say that's a good thing? Clearly I'm not your type either. So there we go again, fools seldom differ.
I hope this email meets you in good health, as good as I am, and in high spirits, as high as mine is, and most of all, I hope your love life blossoms, as mine does, and the sex, hope yours is as good as mine, because you bet, there's nothing better. But then again, why should I be hoping? After all, you're Ms Hotie. Thanks for the thrill, but it is here I am sure we break the commonality. While I can read your comments and laugh, I am sure you're not feeling the same exhuberance reading this. I guess we can't share everything, but as they say, fools SELDOM differ!
Well hello Sampson,
How are you this morning? Well, I must say I was surprised to see an email from you in my inbox. I don't feel any sort of special 'thrill' about it though, so there's no need to worry about me taking any 'props' from it. The first thing that comes to mind is whether or not you're making the rounds of ALL the websites and ALL the bloggers and, for that matter, emailing all the commentors who have written about your incident. I'm not going to address everyting that you've written here, but I have the following to say. In all that I've written about the incident, I've never condemned your sex life, your girlfriends or your activities. I simply stated that the workplace was not the place for them. I never said you were related to one of my friends - perhaps you are getting your blogs mixed up? It certainly seems to be the case since I don't recall anyone calling me - or even saying that I look like a man. By the way, thanks for saying I'm beautiful. I think it is quite possible to say someone is beautiful without it meaning that you want them to have your love child. In conclusion to this email that I'm sending before having my morning coffee, so please excuse the typos, I'd like to leave you with a quote from one of the comments I left on Mani's blog. I hope everything works out for you and all the best.
"Mani, boy, that person is a real beast. Nobody eh deserve having that thing done to them. I mean, it have people I doh see eye to eye with and it have people I just doh have nuttin to do with but I doh hate nobody and yuh have to really hate somebody to do them something like that yes. That is pure bad mind. "
P.S. I've heard rumours that you've lost your job because of this? I hope not. Contrary to what you may believe I do not wish you ill and, even though I still believe that you were in the wrong for bringing your private life into the office, I certainly don't think you deserve to lose your job over this. I wish you all the best and feel free to write again if you wish.
P.S.S. I never said you were a fool. But I will apologise about the womaniser thing. You could check my blog for it later.
Hottie Hottie (NOTE the spelling)
Right. Now allyuh, dais de end of this as far as I am concerned. I fed up. So long I drop this topic and people still bringing it back up. Allyuh, de horse dead. IT DEAD! Remember the Trini rule - 15 minutes of non stop lacaray and then on to the next subject. I mean, really, all this drama over such a small thing.
