She pinged me.
That's how our conversation usually begins. She finds me..when I am looking around, waiting to be found, and not quite knowing it.
I tell her I have started a blog.. and don't quite know what to do with it now. She checks out the link, and says, "Your blog is certainly different."
I am pleased that it is, without having made any special efforts in that direction. I am wondering if she means the template.
"Most people don't quote Will Durant or recent articles they have read", she continues.
I explain that I haven't followed too many blogs before presuming to begin one myself, so perhaps I am not in on what possibilities exist in the quoting business. I just wrote what was top of my mind at midnight, I further explain.
"Most people write about general stuff that happens in their life..", she says.
I am most uncomfortable and sheepish at this point. In my defense, I point out that it is a bold enough thing for me to begin a blog in the first place, considering it's so completely uncharacteristic of me.
She doesn't think so. "In fact I think it's quite logical for you to do so. You like sharing such things with people, as much as you resist having to reach out... It's not like you don't want to..."
She knows. She knows.
"It's mainly that you are incredibly lazy!"
