Normally, I take pride in being an independent, confident, positive person who is unaffected by the negative and sometimes spiteful responses from others.

Yet, no matter how much I argue that other people’s opinions, behavior and comments don’t bother me, I have to confess.  Sometimes they do.

And when that happens, it takes a while to get over it and move forward.

Wish I could be more like the honey badger.

According to Wikipoedia (and who can doubt the authenticity of that resource),

Honey badgers are notoriously fearless and tough animals, having been known to savagely attack their enemies when escape is impossible.  Due to their  thick skin and ferocious defensive abilities, there are few natural predators that challenge them.

Honey badger just don’t care.

I think I’ll have to put that on a t-shirt.

If you don’t mind a bit of profanity, please click on the following link and follow the honey badger’s adventures narrated by Randal. (PG-R-rated). I hope you find it as amusing as I do.
