I do apologize. I must have been so annoying.
Please have a glass of wine on me.
That Spark That Got Me Sharing Online
How was I SO annoying?
“Well, that’s goin’ in the book!” Yes, this was my constant refrain every time I pulled yet another Just TypiKel move. You know, those choice moments that only seem to happen to me. Or my mom.
What book? Depends who you asked. Mom assured me endlessly that I had a book in me about the ten years that I worked with her. Lord knows we had some “special” moments working together.
I didn’t see it as it always loomed huge to me. It was too much. No. My book was going to be about how my darling duo managed to survive being raised by me. I’d blather on about the choice moments like the time Kelly, fed up to the teeth with her children’s refusals to eat a meal she’d prepared, scooped up her dinner and plopped herself outside on the back steps, announcing to anyone within earshot “I love you but I cannot spend ONE more second in your presence.” Or the time she hurled a delicious dinner of cheese sandwiches over the backseat at her kids whilst zooming from skating lessons to swimming lessons and shouted at them that they were “damn lucky to be fed anything at all …”
Mother of the year, right?
They are now 21 and 22 and thriving beyond everyone’s wildest hopes. Thankfully.
With such rich material at my fingertips, you’d think I’d be on book six. But nope, I never tapped into it. I wrote nothing and shared even less.
Until that time I was over visiting Mom and I stumbled upon something that would change my life forever. It was that spark that got me sharing online.
What was it?
Yup – another road trip. We’re heading over to the wonder that is Eli of TechLife – Where Technology and Life Intersect. Don’t know him? Ooooh. You should. Just go. Now.
