Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

How to ruin a compliment

I guess this could be sort of a mini-Correspondence Hall of Shame; it’s just one entry. It started out nice, though. Last week on Curious Cat, an anonymous poster, instead of posing a question as per usual, wrote a comment to me along the lines of how I talk about my age a lot, but I look great. That they watched Naughty Secretaries 2 — I was hot then, and hot now. (That was shot twenty years ago, BTW.) I was pleased with this and thanked them sincerely.

Until another anonymous person chimed in with this:

Erica’s bottom is tempting, in spite of her age.

Really? Really?? 😛

This could have been nice too. They could have changed “in spite of” to “no matter what,” and I would have thanked them sincerely as well.

Or they could have simply posted the first four words and left the rest off. But nooooo.

Therefore, instead of a thank you, that poster gets this:

tonytiger

Yeah, you tell ’em, Tony. Many thanks to my dear buddy Dave Wolfe  for sending me this picture, along with a note about how I “might find it handy.” How well he knows me.

I feel like I should say something here, since some people are asking me. Regarding all the fires burning in California right now, both Northern and Southern, I am safe. I do not live in a fire area, for which I am grateful every minute. The air quality is crappy and the sky is hazy-ish, but I am not in any danger. John, however, does live in a fire-prone canyon area. And with a freaking fire erupting every damn day, I am terrified his area will be next. Talk about feeling powerless.

And it’s exceptionally maddening, knowing that if my state were to completely burn to ashes and fall off the map, the only thing the Day-Glo orange dumbass dotard in chief would say about it is, “Too bad! They should have raked their forests more!” I’d like to rake his forest.

So, between bouts of anxiety and bouts of tears, it has not been a good week. I’m so tired.

Tired of bad news all the fucking time with no end in sight.

Tired of let-downs and disappointments.

Tired of crying.

Despite my desire to stay holed up in my apartment, I am going to pack up my things and head for John’s as per usual, in hopes of a relaxing and distracting weekend. I’d say we’re both due for a weekend where things go smoothly, after last weekend. Because if one more unexpected bad thing happens, I think I’m going to go stark raving slobbering mad.

But hey, I’m still grateful for my apartment. And grateful for work. I’ll end on that.

Have a good weekend, y’all. Don’t forget to set your clocks back if it applies to you.

  2. O Tempting Bottom, greetings, and I’m glad Tony T.T. was there to speak up for you! 😀

  3. Erica, I have been wondering if you and John were safe. But you don’t need to rake. The firefighters have a much more effective way to get rid of the undergrowth – goats!

  4. I really do hope that you and John are having a peaceful and relaxing weekend. I’m sorry you are having such a rough time lately. Wish there was something I could do to help take your mind off stuff. This distance thing sucks. ❤️

  5. I hear you, Erica. Guys at work tell me that I look young. What I hear is “Not bad for a little old lady senior citizen grandmother.” I know they mean it as a compliment, but it doesn’t feel that way. If they just said I looked nice, I would smile and thank them.

    Never mind that our male peers are not routinely judged based upon their appearance. That’s a different gripe for another venue.

    Hope you and J had a peaceful weekend!

    Hugs,

    • Jay — well, fortunately, the weekend was without incident, so we were both able to relax. It took him about six days to get over his extreme reaction to that shot. Blech.

      Bonnie — thank you! Yeah, people just don’t get it. Did you see my latest on Curious Cat? Someone was trying to pay a compliment — said my butt/legs were right up there with [a long list of current and very attractive models]. But then they just had to add, “… and none of them are anywhere near your age.” Really?? @#$%!

  6. Erica; Your bottom is irresistible.
    Now, I have a question. Why do you care what some anonymous guy on the internet says?
    The reason I ask is because there have only been a handful of people who’s opinion mattered to me. Everybody else can fuck right off.

    • Bob — in principle, I don’t really care. But I do get frustrated sometimes, hearing the same idiotic comments over and over. I mean, how do people function in life, saying such stupid crap??

      • I think I can follow your frustration Erica. I suspect that one of the things that play into it, is that not everyone is equally eloquent and clever, and that is something I kind of suspect that you need people to be, in order for you to connect with them on any level. I might be wrong, but to me at least, you seem to be both, and hence seeing the same inane comments time and again get to be boring and/or bothersome.

        As for a dumb sentence ruining a perfectly good compliment, there’s not all that much to say about it, is there, except that what the message we send out, isn’t necessarily the same message that is received by the listener/reader.

        I’ll try and end this on a compliment, and hope that I don’t ruin it 😉 But though you are an attractive woman, with an attractive ass and a very lovely set of legs to go with it, what I find more attractive about you, is the look in your eyes when you smile in the photos, and the keen wit your writing suggest you have.

    • Gary — I appreciate that you’re trying to compliment me, but maligning one age group in order to compliment another isn’t the way to go. I know a lot of women in this industry who are in their 20s and 30s. They are real, genuine, and hard-working.

    Just for the record, I’d like to add to the compliments posted earlier that I think you are a stunningly beautiful woman. When you’re happy, your eyes sparkle. When you’re feeling low, they reveal the depth of your sadness. I wish you happy eyes now and forever.
