Behind the Curtain

"Forgive me Father. It's been too long since my last confession."

"What brings you here today?"

"I caught myself wanting to shoplift just this morning."

"What did you intend to steal?"

"I saw this little ditty on a friend's Facebook page, and well, it was early and I hadn't even finished eating breakfast, and I thought it would be a fast way to blog."

"Tell me, my child. Is that any way to treat your readers? To stolen merchandise?"

"Oh, I was going to change all the answers to my answers, just use the questions."

"And does that make it right?"

"Maybe not. But it does make it fast and easy."

"And do you want to be known to your readers as a fast and easy girl?"

"Well, no, sir."

"So do you repent and promise to return to the fold of originality?"

"Yes, sir."

"Good. Then write with conviction, stay off Facebook, and go out and experience life so that you'll have your own thoughts and experiences to blog about."

"Thank you, sir. So am I forgiven?"

"Don't ask me. Ask your readers."


  1. "What has been is what will be,
    and what has been done is what will be done;
    there is nothing new under the sun."

    Obligatory Ecclesiastes quote

  2. You are forgiven grasshopper, go forth and blog with absolution! :-)
