i chose shadow's answer as the best answer because it leaned the way i was leaning with my thoughts. but it wasn't just about me. the guy called me sandra. maybe i look like a sandra to him, and that's ok. but my name is clearly not sandra, therefore, the gentleman and i would both look like fools if i approved it...in my opinion. so, i have chosen to delete it (then it popped up with a choice of "approve" or "delete forever" so i chose "delete forever" and then the next choice that popped up said "undelete"...WTFrenchfries?? lol).
anyway, i have a few blogs about smoking/quitting smoking. i even made a video about it. the gentleman said he was "battling the evil weed, too" and i think that maybe he read some of those hubs, enjoyed them, and wanted to pay me a compliment, and i appreciate it very much; however, like i said, i'm not sandra, so i will spare both he and i the embarrassment of looking like fools...lol.
however, if he happens across all of this, realizes it was him, and leaves me a new fan mail addressed appropriately, i will approve it and no one will be the wiser...or that's the plan anyway. we all make mistakes because we are human, and it's part of our nature. and that's ok.
thank you all for participating...blessings all!
