annual reminder that i don’t do GISHWHES so please don’t ask

Yes, I know, I’m the person in Ireland many of you know, so it ticks that item off the list if you can get me to do it.

Yes, I know, you’re having a wonderful silly time participating and want other people to join in and have fun too.

Yes, I know, it’s just this one thing.

Yes, I know, it’s for a good cause.

The answer is still no.

I am *glad* you’re all having fun with it. It looks like fun! It sounds like fun! I enjoy reading peoples’ adventures with it! And yet I do not want to participate.

Furthermore, the prospect of participating is stressful to me. It is a thing that if I said I would do it, I would be lying. I would mean to. I would want to. And I would feel really guilty about not doing it, but I still wouldn’t do it.

If there is ever a year when I feel up to participating, I’ll tell people. But until then, the answer is no, so please don’t ask.

  1. I had to google this. Sounds fun, and stressful, in just the way you describe.
