Not to mention the lovely advertising of my husband and son in the previous header. It was screaming, "See! See what they look like!"
I'm a little paranoid. I have this active meter thingy that shows me not just how many people are reading my blog, but where they are from. Yes. I know all of you from way over in Eastern Canada and the USA come here a lot, and I think it's great! Makes me want to visit your area! I am totally fascinated with who is reading my blog and where they are from. It is, by far, one of the coolest parts of having a blog (besides when you all leave comments, which I love even more).
So I have blogged merrily away until I noticed that someone from my very town is reading my blog. Which wouldn't matter if I lived somewhere
"My Mom has this thing called a blog where she writes, and it's called "Notes From the Cookie Jar", and if you're mean she'll blog you." Well, not really. Only if it's sorta funny. Or if I'm really irritated. And even then I'll change a lot of it. But....do I want his friends finding it, or his friend's parents? I'm not sure. I don't really know. Probably not. I don't want to give people any more fodder to tease him with.
So in the interest of keeping who we are a little less obvious, I changed things a little. Just so that, you know, I won't have some cashier at the grocery store asking about the shirt, or my neighbor discovering that I think she's nosey, or even my Mom phoning me up for a good scolding. Just in case. I even changed our names.
Because being anonymous can be a good thing too, you know.
(So mysterious reader, if you know who we are and are reading, leave me a comment and put me out of my misery. Otherwise I'm going to be eyeing everyone in town with suspicion-hee hee!)
