*Today's Bulletin Online.
* At home with ... bookstore owner and blogger Duncan McGeary
Uh, oh. I'm in trouble now, boys.
I've decided I'm 'probably' not going to comment on the article tomorrow. When we got interviewed, I thought maybe I could direct them in certain direction, but we talked and talked and they took pictures, and they have 20 times the material they need for an article.
It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, they found newsworthy about the way Linda and I live. I think Linda and I live pretty simply.
So, I'm already kind of wincing, even though I haven't read the article and have no idea what's in it. I also didn't want to step on the article that Penny wrote, but since it's coming out tomorrow....
Despite this blog and despite appearances. I don't really like poking my head out of the ground to get whacked all that much.
And yet, I thought maybe my Dad in his assisted care center and other family and friends might get a kick out of it.
Besides, I should probably never turn down free publicity.
But I've had my usual 'ostracism' dreams over the last few nights, which is my subconscious telling me to shut up and lie low. "Don't get cocky, kid!" Hans Solo.
O.K. I have an ego. But I always get in trouble when I let it get away from me.
I also think these article are the type of thing that people -- including me -- can be rather judgmental about. "What dopes."
Let the backlash begin!
Tim told me he thought it was funny the way I agonize over these things, but ... it's constantly in the back of my mind that I'd be better off shutting up.
But....what fun would that be?
Linda's comment: this is like saying, there is an article coming out tomorrow. Read it!
