Saturday morning the ear doctor sat bolt upright in bed. His first words to me were not the usual, "good morning my sweet love. I am the luckiest man in the world to wake up to such a beautiful, creative, smart, funny girl"
This morning he said, "I have the best idea for a blog!"
Blinking off the heavy sleep weighing down my lids I thought I'd lost my mind. This is my husband, right? The one who sort of teases me about writing a blog? The one who himself promised to answer my reader's questions on my blog only to sweep the offer under the rug? He's now having dreams about starting a blog and already has a well-defined, cohesive topic the likes of which my blog will probably never be able to attain? As the world SPUN OFF IT'S AXIS?!?!?!
So I replied, "oh, yeah? What is it?"
With a look of pride in his eyes, he responds, "It's called Limey Lubbers....you know, like pirate-speak for lime lovers? It'll be a whole blog about things that are good with limes!" (pause, during which I scratch my head) He continues, "And I already have the first post! DIET COKE!"
To which I reply, "Oh, really? What are you going to write about diet coke and limes, my sweet?. . . oh, wait, you mean the whole post will just be 'Diet Coke' with no other explanation"
"Yeah, it'll just be a list of things that are good with limes."
Something tells me that the ear doctor may not quite have a grasp of what is required to have a successful blog? Although, until I'm in the position to have a million readers chomping at the bit for every pearl of wisdom doled out from my fingertips, maybe I'm not the right person to judge....
