The Morning After

25 May

It’s always kind of awkward the day after a Freshly Pressed post.  It’s like a one-night stand.  Should we acknowledge this happened and it was awesome but then recognize that we can’t keep going on like this?  Should we just ignore it and act casual?

…Should we cuddle?

I’ve always gone the casual route.   With Freshly Pressed, I mean – not with one-night stands.  I’ve actually never had one of those.  But since I’m going to keep plowing forward with this analogy I’ve worked up for us here, I guess that acting casual and ignoring our connection yesterday makes me kind of a player.  I like to consider myself an old-fashioned lady, so allow me to take a moment and send a big, fat, genuine bag of thanks to all you who are browsing my pages, commenting and liking the sweet bejeezus out of my blog, and considering starting Lollipop Tuesday streaks of your own (which I absolutely support).  I really appreciate you stopping by, and I will get back to the comments you leave.  Eventually.  I’d do it all at once, but I’m kind of doing this postaday2011 thing and it’s pretty time-consuming. I hope you can understand.

This came at a great time.  Although I was gearing up for my half-year anniversary of blogging every day, it’s pretty darn hard.  And this was a lovely pick-me-up.

Not to mention a great, unexpected karmic reward for trying something truly atrocious.

      Thanks, Lian! What a huge compliment to be your first subscription. I so appreciate you keeping up with me. In a sea of comments from random folks, it’s so comforting to see the names I’ve become used to 🙂

    I believe the etiquette is to send flowers the next morning. Maybe your florist will give you a volume discount?

      all right – but you’re going to have to go public with your address. 😛
