Pearls of Wisdom

The trouble with having a large extended family is that you hardly get to be the first one to share your news with others. It is always someone else who does it for you.

The trouble with having your blog is that while you are the first one to announce your news, you can hardly talk to your friends and relatives because anything you say will be met with "yaa, I already know that, I read it in your blog"

Another trouble with having a blog is that since people are up to date with all your news, they hardly call you up. Moreover, it is always a one-way communication with no news from the other side coming your way.

The trouble with known people reading your blog is that you cannot bull shit without getting caught or do a healthy debate on "sensitive subjects".

And the trouble with kids growing up and reading your blog is that they know for sure that you love them to bits inspite of their mischief that make you superficially tear your hair out, because you then promptly go to your keyboards and type out a awww-inspiring version of those very annoying stuff they do, on your precious blog!

This is so funny! For two reasons...

a) Because it's chickle-out-loud-funny funny, and beacuse

b) just this morning, I was getting all excited about a maybe blogger's meet in Kolkata, hopefully sometime soon, and then I was suddenly stricken by a "But what will I say to them?"

Oops! Typo! That's 'chuckle' and not 'chickle'!

Quite like the sound of that though...think I'll keep it and think up a meaning to go along with it! ;p

Oh, thats' so funny. That's maybe one of the reason I have not shared my blog with relatives. :)

I am with you on that - my Kid#2 has found my blog, the rotter, and has driven me insane with more cheekiness

Cuckoo said...

Yup, and the two will be proud of it too :) Keep blogging!

i agree with all of this specially the healthy debate on the sensitive topics... there are times when i have discarded a fully ready draft knowing that one person in the family would read it and get very hurt

A friend was over from US. Ran out of conversation pretty soon since she knew exactly what I had been up to from the blog ;-)
