I’ve had a lot of fun this week (ambulance drama notwithstanding) at Vacation Bible School. Not just because I got to hang out with a boatload of first graders, but mainly because I got to see a lot of blogging buddies IRL.
The one I was embarrased to use Moses to snap a pic with since she’s a fantastic photographer?
And her adorable daughter that makes me want to toss my birth control pills and go for the girl get all crazy smoochy lady when I see her.
Is that not the most squishalicious baby you’ve ever seen?
I could eat her with a spoon.
And Heather doesn’t mind that I’m psycho in a stalkerish sort of way is great about just letting me hug and kiss on L3 and fill my baby love bucket whenever we run into each other at church.
Makes my day.
Besides getting to indulge in all things baby in the past few days, I’ve had the chance to meet no less than four people who poked their head into my classroom to say “Hey! I read your blog and just wanted to come by and see you in person.” And when I asked, “Have you left a comment?” they all said “No, because I never know what to say.”
People, people, people.
I never know what to say either, and I WRITE this thing.
So today, Dear Reader, we’re going to play Meet the Lurker.
If you lurk on my blog, you will be required to leave a comment today.
If you don’t lurk and are a regular commenter, feel free to leave a comment as well so that the lurkers don’t feel like their comment will be out there all alone for everyone else to see.
I believe in safety in numbers.
Need ideas for what to say?
You can tell me how you know me, or that you don’t know me at all.
You can tell me what you bought at the grocery store this week.
You can talk about your hair (because Lord knows, I talk about mine all the time).
You can tell me where YOU ate the last time you went to New Orleans (or tell me where to eat in Myrtle Beach – that’s coming up).
Or if all else fails, you can just say what my blogging buddy June told me when I whined about not having something quippy to leave in her comments. She said to write “That was a lovely post. Have a nice day.”
So, lurkers, time to come out of the woodwork.
I (sorta’) promise never to bug you about it again and don’t expect you ever to leave another comment so long as we both shall live.
Unless I have another day where I don’t know what to blog about.
Have a …well, you know.
