So I’m sitting on my friend’s deck and having a few drinks, as I find myself doing more often that I care to admit, and we’re discussing my blog. Yes, this very blog right here.
She asks me: “What’s your first post going to be about?”
I’d been asking myself this question too. One of the reasons I started this blog was that recently, my mother committed suicide. It’s been hard to deal with, and I thought that occasionally writing about it could be therapeutic. But I also just really like telling funny stories, so I thought I might also talk about that time I duct-taped paper towel into my shoes in an attempt to build arch support into them. I told her as such.
She immediately burst out laughing. “So… your first post is either going to be about your mother’s suicide or about the importance of good footwear?!”
