Day 5 – National Blog Posting Month.
It’s been on and off for a few weeks now, this sharp, stabbing pain in my left chest. I know what it is and why it is and as much as I try to control it, I just can’t. It’s work related and I can’t talk about it.
Wow, I think I just “vagueblogged”. And yes, I just made that up.
I hate when people “vaguebook” – you know, someone posts a very vague message on Facebook which then prompts friends and followers to ask, “Are you okay?” or “Thinking of you!” “Hope you are okay.” Suddenly whatever they are actually posting about really isn’t as important as how many friends actually noticed and are asking about it. That is what is really wanted by the original message. Someone is feeling upset and alone and vulnerable – reaching out to social media is the way they can feel important again.
Which reminds me of a comedian my husband introduced me to recently. He’s so funny and so NOT politically correct, it was actually quite refreshing to watch. His name is Anthony Jeselnik. One particular “bit” really struck home with me.
So today, I ask my blogging friends and readers not to forget about me.
