Pot. Kettle. Black.

To one of the friends on my blogroll (you know who you are), I thought I would provide the following word definition given your reaction to our conversation last night.  From the Merriam-Webster on-line dictionary is the word I believe applies to our conversation, the second definition being the more relevant and what I think of your opinion and attitude last night.

I will speak with you directly about why I’m applying this word to you if you wish, but you need to remember you’re not quite the virtuous individual you made yourself out to be.  We all have faults.

That is all.

  1. I’m not on your blogroll. Let me add: Confucius say, “those who live in glass house should not throw stones”.
