He doesn’t get it

This conversation happened the other day between Lee and myself:

Me: So, I was talking to a blog friend of mine who lives {not too far away from us}, and I was thinking of driving down with Cooper to meet her.  You know, she’s the one who made Cooper’s birthday invitations?  And she has a little boy Cooper’s age.  And he’s so cute and funny!  And he really likes to wear fedoras!

Lee: [looking at me like I have 3 heads] Huh?  Are you going to her HOUSE?!

Me:  [really confused about why he isn’t excited about this like I am] Well….yeah….She’s really nice and we talk all the time about how the boys would have so much fun together, and it would be so fun!

Lee: How do you know she’s not psycho?

Me: Umm, I read her blog.  And she’s on twitter. [frantically finding her on twitter] Oh, here’s a picture of her and her kids!  See, she’s so nice!

Lee: People can look nice and still be psycho.

Me: But! I have friends who are friends with her!

Lee: What friends?

Me: Er…..other friends….that I met through blogging and twitter

Lee: omg

Me:  No!  I promise she is normal and so nice and fun!

Lee: Okay, if you think it’s a good idea…..

 

If you don’t blog, you don’t get it.  And I know that.  But I often forget.

Oh my word, I am DYING here!! I'm (obviously) SUPER behind on reading blogs and working through my reader tonight. I'm glad Lee let you come meet me, and I bet he's glad I wasn't really an ax murderer...haha!! :) Patrick's the same way. :)
