Yesterday, someone I consider a friend used the phrase “constant barrage of daily shit” in relation to the number of emails with which I have been showering their inbox. In truth, they are correct. I was, and can be, overwhelming when it comes to interacting with someone I like. Believe you me, I can be almost as underwhelming especially when determined to be so. But I am always charming (Hey you! Remember that!).
The light bulb moment for “Your Daily Barrage of Sh!t” came to me in the middle of the night (Wait does your mind work/write in the middle of the night, too?) as a way to quell my desire to bombard this particular friend with my continual over-sharing, and possibly turn it into the “absence makes the heart grow fonder” variety because I don’t not want to be friends.
Listen, I send this person all kinds of fun shit from book reviews, pictures, interesting articles (mostly about literature, sometimes about sex), sassy fictional pieces, descriptions of how I am dressed, and other things ranging from mild-mannered to the major enticement type. But I have a problem, and my friend has an issue, with the quantity, but hopefully not the quality, of my attempts to distract.
I get it. I do. Hence, the birth of “Your Daily Barrage of Sh!t”, and now you will be the recipients of my bountiful and overflowing cup of creative juices!
So let’s turn the proverbial lemons into lemonade, shall we?
I’m going to barrage this blog on a daily basis with the stuff I’d typically send to that inbox. Switch flipped! Watch out!
Some days it may merely be a word or a phrase or a thought. Other days I may tell you a story. Occasionally I’ve been known to rant, so there surely will be some of that. There could be pictures. Articles. Ponderings. Who knows?
This is where YOU, my future readers and friends, come into play because “Your Daily Barrage of Sh!t” is for all of us!
Want to tell me something? I will listen and comment.
Rant? I’ll commiserate and comment
Tell me a story? After gushing all over you, I will comment.
Just want to comment? I worship them, and I’ll comment back.
I’ve got this! Can you feel it too? Now let’s start having some fun.
[Blogger’s note: I hope I can find my way back here from the laptop since I began this exciting adventure on my phone!]
