This is how one woman's blog addiction was exposed. The names have been changed to protect the innocent; however, I do have her permission to tell this story. Although she doesn't have a blog of her own, she reads them and knows what's blogworthy. Even she admits this is oh so good. Let us commence, shall we:
Me: Last Wednesday, I write my post about blogging addiction.
Friend in real life otherwise known as Mrs. Friend IRL: Leaves a comment at 10:38 a.m.
Me: I pickup The Princess at school on that afternoon and notice her teacher isn't there at the door to release the class as she usually does.
Me to The Princess: "Did you have a substitute today?"
The Princess: "Yes, Mrs. Friend IRL subbed today."
Me to The Princess: "Oh, was she there for just the afternoon?" knowing in the back of my head that she'd left a comment that very morning.
The Princess replies: "No, she was there all day."
Me: In my head...doing the math...comment at 10:30ish...oh you know where I'm headed with this one...
Me to The Princess: "What did you have for specials this morning?"
The Princess: "PE at 10:30."
Me in my head: Ohmygosh, ohmygosh Mrs. Friend IRL got a blogging fix during a break at school. Bahhahahhaaha. That.is.hilarious.
Me to Mrs. Friend IRL via email: What were you doing reading my blog while you were supposed to be edumakating The Princess? BAHAHAHAHHA BAHHAHHAHAHHAHA. I wouldn't have known otherwise if you hadn't left the comment when you did. BAHAHAHAHA
Phone rings at my house.
Mrs. Friend IRL: "I can't believe you busted me."
Oh yes I did, and the irony of it happening on a post about bloggers addiction was brilliant.
I'm still laughing, and so is she. I think.
