Sunday Scribblings: My two cents

I'm happy to get to this Sunday scribbling on Friday, since this weekend will be a busy one, with a friend in town from the West coast, an all day folk concert to hit tomorrow, and a friend's baby shower on Sunday. So, here goes.

Just My Two Cents
I say it when I'm not confident in whatever will precede or follow.
I say it to mask the fact that whatever I said is important to me.
I say it to mask the fact that whatever I said should be important to you.
I say it to blunt criticism you need to hear.
I say it when I don't want to seem pushy, even though that's exactly what I want to be.
I say it too often. Best Blogger Tips

Hahahaha! I read this RIGHT after reading your comment on my poem post, where you used "my two cents."

Now, I know the secrets behind your words!!! :)

Wow - I like the way you talked about "the mask" aspect of it. I never thought about it that way, but you're right; I do the same.

Wow! Eye-opener indeed.

A unique twist on the prompt. Interesting concept about saying "my two cents' worth" to mask or lesson the blow of some hard truths Well done.

Beautiful. I like the masks best of all, although my masks are different.

I don't say it often at all, but I do say it for the same reasons. Thank you for writing this. :-)

This is like the other side of the coin (sorry, couldn't resist!) from my blog on the prompt.

I really liked seeing this from another angle. Really interesting take on the prompt...thanks!

I had to chuckle at your post because your thoughts perfectly describe my motivation for my "2 cents" topic that I picked! Something I wanted to talk with a friend about, but didn't have the courage to do so!

love your take on the prompt here. I didn't even think if it that way, especially your comments about it being a mask!

The mask reference is amazing - very stong and so very true.
What a great post!
