Another brainchild

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"

Oh no.

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 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....

Nope, I think you are perfectly able to judge currently. :)

I'm totally on board with this one. There are a lot of things that are great with lime. Have you tried lime on cantaloupe?

Clearly, he's lived in Mexico. They put lime on EVERYTHING here. And usually it tastes much better. I'll read his blog!

I'm with MrsEm on this one lime on cantaloupe is really good.

i belonged to a message board years ago and one friday afternoon, someone started a thread called "Lime KAPOW" about how everything was better with lime. In the space of about an hour that thread was seriously 15 pages long. People had ALOT to say about limes so who knows, perhaps there really is a market for such a blog. (we even ended up making t-shirts with a lime on the front. Nerd alert)
