I’m opinionated

I recently poked fun at myself during an online meeting, genuinely surprised at my willingness to be the subject of humour.

This may be a sign of desperation for a laugh, in doom and gloom times.

A male colleague remarked that I seemed to have an opinion regarding the subject matter that we were discussing, so perhaps I should be involved.

I laughed and remarked lightly, that’s never been said about me before.

My opinion was rooted in hard-earned professional experience and through the practical application of trial and error.

I flipped that dismissive noun, with a little self-deprecating humour, into a fine descriptor of future expectations.

Well, that’s my opinion, and you’ve been advised.

Man up – don’t take it personally!
