Did you ever have someone describe a relationship that you were in with them as "love-hate?"
Hmmm. Should one be insulted or pleased?
Of course, they are probably right. And it does imply a certain lack of being-asleep-at-the-wheel. Hate's a fairly loud and/or painful condition. Not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, it doesn't last terribly long.
Love you too. Fuck off.
