    Don't Mean To Be

    I speak my mind.  Try as I do to be tactful, it just doesn't always happen.  And frankly, there are some situations that it's nearly impossible to be both honest and tactful at once.Given the choice, I go with honest.But that does mean I've got a bit of an edge to me.

    Wow.

    Reading through my stories and opinions, I seem like a real *****. I say things that are controversial and that might hurt people's feelings. I almost care.
