Thank you, I think
I have resisted the computer age as much as any man alive. When Elaine bought our first home computer, I was bewildered as to why we need that thing. I already owned a typewriter, fax machine, calculator and a deck of cards. I guess it was nice to combine those items into one machine, but it seemed like a waste of money to me.
Now we have websites, social networking and blogs and none of which I knew what they were until a few years ago.
When we were opening the store it was suggested that we get a website. I guess that made sense, since everyone had them or were getting them. Then they suggested we start a blog.
I had never read a blog and wasn't even sure what they were. Elaine and Ivy didn't have time (so they say) to write. They asked me to write something.
Ivy: Just write something about the store. Me: I don't know anything about the store. (I actually know everything about the store; I just thought this blog thing would cut into nap time) Ivy: There's a movie about a lady who read Julia Child's recipes, then prepared a different recipe every night and wrote about it. We should watch the movie and then you will know what we are talking about.
Elaine, Ivy and I watched the movie. By the time it was over I realized what they wanted me to do. They wanted me to cook dinner for them.
Me: So you want me now to cook dinner every night? Elaine: Is that what you think? Me: I know what you're up to, and I'm not falling for it. I already do most of the wor…… (Interrupting) Elaine: You better stop and think about what you're saying. Me: Sometimes the truth hurts. Elaine: At times I wonder why I married you!
Ivy suggested I read a couple of other blogs.
