You know what I find irritating? When bloggers write something like, “I’m working on a big project right now that will change my entire life and possibly make me a multi-bajillionaire, but I’m not ready to share it with the world yet, so you’ll just have to wait until I have all the facts in order, my hair is in the right place, my lipstick isn’t smudged, and my stars are all aligned, before all is revealed.”
Or something to that effect.
If it’s such a big secret, do us a favor and don’t tell us about it until you’re ready. And telling us that you’re not going to tell us counts as telling us. Copy that? You’re not Master of the Universe, the center of all that is good and holy. Please don’t act as if we’ve nothing better to do than to wait breathlessly for the next installment of Your Life. So spare us the suspense and just share the news when you’re ready to do so.
Hmm. If I sound a little grouchy, I’m probably just coming off a quick M&M-induced sugar high. And I’m doing this work in the lobby of the local hospital while I wait for B. to get off work. The custodian emptying the trash keeps wanting to chat with me, which I don’t mind except I’m working. And he keeps calling me “Sweetie.” **slow burn**
