Don’t You Read My Blog, Oh Husband Of Mine?

Out at Barnes and Noble…

Me: I’m thinking of dyeing my hair red and green for Christmas.

Scott: Oh yeah, let’s get some Manic Panic.

Me: This blue isn’t Manic Panic.  It’s Special Effects.  You don’t read my blog.

Scott: I read your blog a LOT.

Me: Whatever.

I huff off and spend 10 minutes of being followed by Scott around Barnes and Noble. I want to continue to pout for another 10, but my jaw has fallen to the floor at the new Teen Paranormal Relationship section. (seriously B&N? I’m uncomfortable.)

Scott: Alex?

Me: Yeah?

Scott: I read your blog enough to know this.

Scott makes a face and quickly walks away — zigzagging in and out of aisles.

Me: Wait, wha… OMG you farted and fled the scene! Aw, you used a Late Enough technique. You really DO read my blog.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Well played, Scott. Well played. Christian makes me all self conscious by reading a post, saying “hmph,” and walking away. But then he’ll randomly mention how he thinks i’m a great writer. They’re so conflicted!

  2. He got ya, Alex. Funny.

    How do you motivate your husband to read your blog. My husband had not read mine. I fear that if my own husband doesn’t think it is entertaining then I am in trouble.

  3. OMG! We live parallel lives. I swear I have had EXACTLY the same conversation with my husband. Complete with “you don’t read my blog” and farts. Do they have secret meetings about us? Hmmm…

    1. Actually, we got this all figured out on Facebook but yes, I meant upwind. It really doesn’t matter. The direction of the wind has no effect on my noxious emissions! All within 50 feet are doomed. 🙂
