“Hey, relax. I’m just kidding.”
Simple enough. right? What, can’t take a joke? You shouldn’t have to. And horsing around isn’t a sport.
In truth, it’s worse than a sport.
As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
Look it up in your Bible. Maybe yours reads like this: “…and says, ‘I was only joking.'”
Throwing around barbs as a so-called term of endearment isn’t friendly. In fact, it’s the opposite.
Punk’d isn’t pleasant. Horsing around isn’t a sport.
