The place: Parental bedroom
The participants: Roo-girl and her Evil Mother.
The scene: Really pleasant snuggly evening with EM being the Roo's very very best friend in the world.
The Roo-girl: You need to have a blog, Mom.
Evil Mother: Uh ... well, um, why do you think I need one?
TRG: Cuz you DO!
EM: What would I do with a blog?
TRG: We're really funny, ya know. You could write about the funny stuff we do.
EM: Oh, Roo, you can't stand it if I tell my friends your funny stuff. What would you say if it was posted on the internet?
TRG: Oh, pooh, Mom, no one would know who I am! Come on ... you need a blog!
TRG: Come on, we'll set one up right now! I'll help you!
EM: I don't think that's something we need to do right now. Look! Something shiny!!
OK, bloggy friends, here's the deal. Obviously, I already have a blog. Also obviously, the Roo-girl knows nothing about it. In fact, no one in real life knows anything about it except the Wonderhubby (who reads it if I send him a link to a particular post, but not otherwise). Not even my BFF knows.
Roo already has seen the From the Planet of Janet linky love on Melodyann's blog. She thought the name was funny but didn't seem to make the connection.
Not telling her has involved some interesting maneuverings on my laptop when she bursts unannounced into my room. Especially when my mailbox clearly states email subject lines like this: [from the planet of janet] New comment on Post-birthday stress disorder.
But there is no force on this earth like the Roo on a mission. She will bug me until the end of time.
So now I'm all conflicted. Do I tell? Or do I continue to write freely in my anonymity?
At the risk of damaging my fragile ego by having no one respond, I am going out on a limb to ask your opinion. I have created (clever me) a poll.
If you know and love me (or even just tolerate me a little), vote!
If you are a lurker, please delurk long enough to give me your input.
And the people who got here by googling "dog poop floor diarrhea" or "how to make your WeeMee like Hannah Montana"? You should vote as well.
I await your decision.
