'apparently i have been laboring under a misapprehension'

when i first started this thing i told hardly anyone about it fearing the exposure of my feelings and thoughts would be far too much for my loved ones to bear. i wanted a secret place to show the world how witty and fabulous i am (because it obviously doesn't already know) and i wanted no one i know to know about it so that i could write about them and they could not argue and prove me wrong. i also started it to make my sister laugh.

so i wrote and pontificated and cussed and yelled at people who can't drive and it was good. then as time went on i told a handful of people about it and even passed out the address. those few read faithfully and commented and it was good.

after watching (with horror) the form it was taking i even told a few more of my friends about it and they would say 'oh, cool - i'll have to check it out' and then they never did. it seemed to be that no matter how many i told - it was only those few from the beginning that seemed to care. even my non-work, real boyfriend doesn't even read this which is all sorts of backwards and wrong. i don't even think my sister reads it anymore.

so, i guess i had nothing to fear to begin with - that's about right. so, what was i hiding. it seems so silly now. i don't see me telling my grandfather about it due to the cussing but i am not sure why it mattered so much in the beginning. apparently my life is not nearly as exciting or mysterious as i once believed - that's about right.

  • i beg to differ about the whole thing. I only stopped reading 2 weeks ago when you blogged once about the girls gone wild and then once again, nothing. now i come to just check it out and holy moly. and by the way, you never read my blog, so why are you giving everyone a hard time about not reading yours?

  • i check yours everyday smarty pants

  • that, of course, is my point. how do you know that people arent reading it? just bc we dont comment, doesnt mean we dont come back for more. its just like sex in a strange way.

  • ha! you crack me up. i wasn't referring to you. i know you read it. i was referring to people i have told after you. i know they don't.

  • i have to leave a comment after sex?

  • i think she means you don't have to comment on sex in order to come back for more. i don't think you, necessarily, have to 'leave' a comment.
