The Things We Do for Our Blogs
I was going through all the photos on my hard drive and I came across this one. It's a chocolate graham cracker pie crust that I accidentally knocked onto the floor while frantically prepping food for Croptoberfest.
The really sad thing is that this particular picture is staged for my blog. No, no, the accident really happened, it's just that I cleaned it up right away and then I realized that I could blog about this, so I threw it back down on the floor and artfully arranged the mess so I could take the picture.
Gasp. Can you believe that?
Raise your hand if you've ever said or thought that phrase--"I could blog about this . . ."
It happens on a regular basis around here. In fact, it's so bad that my family has started responding to that look I get with "Oh no, you're not going to put this on your blog are you?"
To which I have to reply, "Why yes. Not only are you my peeps, you are my material."
Honestly, myself, my family and my friends are my best source of material. Why? Because people are funny. And people create the comedy that is our lives. If we can't laugh at ourselves (Pickle), then we aren't having fun.
When I'm 96 and sitting in my rocking chair in the nursing home, I'm going to have my blog book to read and remind me about all the people I have known and loved. Then I'll probably fall out of my rocking chair and break a hip because I'm laughing so hard.
