>Well, I think you are a very sensitive kind of guy or think too much. Be
honest with you. If I have AIDS or STD'S or Ebola viruses, I would not be
here talking to you. Maybe I talked too much or my wording somehow misled
you. Remember I told you that I always confuse people, or they get lost
because of something I said. Well, I guess I have done it again. It is a
good trademark of mine, and it is hard to get rid off. The reason I talk
much about STD's is that they are a very common nature nowadays, but what
has gone wrong? And I really hate people who are fooling around and passing
the viruses to other people who do not deserve to get them. And it is scary
not to know the people around me who has AIDS, STD's or what have you,
which are highly contagious.
The other thing I shoud clarify as well. When I said "I know you do not
care a damn," I meant it in the good way like you did. I do not know
about you, but it is like when I talk to a person, I always observe how
he speaks. Then I fit in with the same type of language he is using to
make him feel as comfortable as possible, not like you are speaking
English and I am speaking Spanish. You know?
Hope you will get through this weekend fine. Like I said, after I
organize my thoughts a little bit, I will talk to you more about the
P.S. I suspect you are from UMass. Am I right?
