This isn't one of my most interesting posts (at least, it's not of the caliber of the posts I really keep this blog for) but I had to record a certain conversation which may shed light on the characteristic character of a couple characters.Understand that this is a shortened paraphrase of what took place, but Snap can testify to its overall veracity. I wish I could remember it as it happened, it would be more interesting that way, but I can't.
tq: Oh! Ow. My foot really hurts!
snap: I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to crush your foot with the seat.
tq: I know that, and I already told you that I forgive you.
A few minutes later, tq moves her foot to the brake and groans again.
snap: I'm soo sorry, TQ!
tq: It's ok. I told you I forgive you. Stop saying you are sorry.
snap: I'm sorry.
tq: No, no, no. Don't be sorry for being sorry. I just want to groan without you saying you are sorry again.
tq: Stop saying sorry! I forgave you and I'm really, truly not mad at you. But if you keep saying sorry I'm might get upset.
tq: When you say, "sorry," I feel guilty for making you sorry and then I feel sorry. Please, please, stop saying you are sorry.
