It’s Saturday, I have to work later, but boy do I have some things on my fricking mind.
I have a thing against mommy bloggers in general, mainly because they get HUGE AUDIENCES without having any talent…however…
Some of them get HUGE audiences in spite of their ability to write, and that ticks me off.
I bust my butt in order to post everyday, and for the most part, my shit is pretty funny. Okay, not always, but at least, it is for the most part, entertaining.
AND, everyone who reads me, I find funny, and for the most part quite intelligent…More often than not, I find your comments funnier than the post.
That is why I read you…but yeah, I have some jealousy. I have a streak of vanity that once in awhile raises its cobra-like head.
As much as I am a run of the mill kinda guy, I make no bones about me wanting to make some money off of all of this, and ya know…
I just don’t get it.
I see others with sites who have nearly 1,500 followers, (which I don't do) and are “nominated” for Humor Blog of the Year and I want to throw up.
There’s one chick in particular that I happen by and I think…WTF? And yet, she’s relatively large.
I hate those kinds of things.
I would never ask you guys to be my “followers” nor would I beg you guys to vote for me for some stupid award, and yet, I hate the petty feelings of jealousy that I somtimes get, but..
I do get a bit of pissiness in me once in awhile about this. I bet some of you others do too…
Maybe you guys don’t feel the same way, but dammit, I’m pretty funny and many of you are too, and we should get credit for it. Whatever that means…
But damn, why can’t we all make people just figure out how fucking "magnificent" we are without effort?
Lastly, I need to tell you all something quite painful…
If you followed me on Wednesday, I told you that Ryno’s tiny, private school is going to field a baseball team this year. They play in a major Ohio conference.
Well, anyhow…13 players signed up. I asked Ryno the following:
"Hey Ryno? How many have played in the last 2 years or so?" He replied, “Two.”
I further pondered...“Um..Sweetie? When is your first practice?”
He answered, “Tonight Dad.”
I asked…”What are you going to be working on during your first practice?”
He replied, “Catching and Throwing.”
I thought to myself, “Well…ya gotta cover the fundamentals“…Oh Dear God, pray for Ryno and his team.
Correction and Apology: This post orginally had Amid Life's Crises as one of the labels. It was supposed to be labeled "Life". Dana's site of the aforementioned title always comes up first in my label list and I inadvertantly hit that one.
This post had nothing to do with Dana or her site. I apologize for the mistake.
