Since my last post went over like a lead balloon...
...I will post again.
Just for me.
No longer for comments.
Those days are gone.
I am taking this week off of work (of which I do not reveal what I do for anonymity reasons...yeah, yeah, I'm a very important person in the witness protection program and can't have my identity revealed).
While lazing around the house yesterday with a cold and cough, and quite frankly enjoying doing absolutely nothing, I tuned into the Ellen Degeneres show.
She begins the show with a monologue, and then breaks into dance.
Wow, how great is that?
I turned to my husband (who is also on holiday from his highly confidential job, and sat very patiently with me while I hackingly coughed my way through the day) and said...
"What could be better, I mean really, than to have your own talk show, where you can get up and dance each and every day, with an audience cheering you on, and your own D.J.?"
Of course my husband turned back toward me and said, "why don't you blog about it?"
Isn't that cute? How sweet,huh?
And in that moment it hit me...
this guy has figured out how to get me off his back!
Now that I think about it, this isn't the first time he has gently suggested I go blog about some inane topic.
And all this time I thought he was supporting me in this endeavor, while praising my great writing talents (coincidentally, especially when they are posts about him).
So there you go. After two years of digging into the depths of my brain, cranking out stories from my past and present, the truth is revealed...
Turns out, blogging has saved my marriage. When my husband was frustrated with me, he told me to blog.
When he could no longer listen to my words (I know, hard to imagine), he told me to blog.
When I couldn't stop talking about the same thing over and over, he told me to blog.
Turns out...the act of blogging is more than just a place to express oneself...
Blogging is a marital aide. (you should pardon my expression).
Who needs Dr. Phil when you've got blogging...
