Did I Say That?
I never thought these words would come out of my mouth.
I grew up in the early 60’s and 70’s and felt the comfort of home and friends. I knew my boundaries, respected my elders and always remained respectful.
Today was an eye-opener for me. Husband stayed home today from work, a minor medical procedure needed to be done and he didn’t feel like driving in the other direction for an hour and coming home early to drive in the OTHER direction for 45 minutes.
We’d planned a few stops on the way to said procedure. About the time we were to leave I was on the computer reading the blogs I frequent on a daily basis.
“Are you ready to go?”
“No. Wait a minute.”
“Well there is this wonderful woman in Africa I have to respond too. I have a solution to her problem.” http://reluctantmemsahib.wordpress.com/
His eyes rolled up in the back of his head.
I was wondering if I actually just said that entire sentence out loud.
“Then I have to respond to that beautifully witty woman in Great Britan.”http://innerminx.blogspot.com/
Now his eyes widened. Need I reiterate he was having a medical procedure?
“Then I have to write my friends in Canada, Chicago, Maryland and New York. http://anna-pendragon.blogspot.com/ -http://cappuccinoheights.blogspot.com/- http://hudson-chronicles.blogspot.com/ It’ll just take a second. After I check on my friend in Indonesia -http://unguarded--utterance.blogspot.com/ and make sure that my Muslem friend in England http://www.write-now.co.uk/ is still posting.”
Then there is an old friend of mine that I check on frequently: http://web.mac.com/dorlando/iWeb/dominicorlando.com/Blog/Blog.html
He went out to the front porch to think about it.
I was thinking too.
“Did I, a woman who lives in Appalachia – USA, just say I had to give advice to a woman in Africa?”
This internet is truly an amazing thing.
