“I have to tell you” she said.
“I googled you and I found your blog.”
If you want to know what stops my heart it is a mom in Ian’s class telling me that she read my blog.
I don’t keep it a secret. I am not anonymous. I am mostly pretty proud of my work here, but this was this morning and I happen to know I wrote a post this week about testicles and I only know this lady from kindergarten class parties. I have no idea what is coming next.
Fortunately it was ” I read your post about your underwear falling down at Tae Kwon Do. I was reading it at work and I was laughing so hard I was crying. I can completely relate.”
I got lucky. This particular mom is very cool and has a sense of humor.
Now two parents from Ian’s kindergarten class have approached me about my underpants issues. I am thrilled that they are reading me and like my work, but I have two concerns.
1) If you google my first and last name and, I don’t know, zip code, is the first thing that comes up The Saga of the Traveling Underpants?
2) Am I going to become known as the lady who had underwear problems at Tae Kwon Do?
I guess these are the risks that you run when you tell all of your most embarrassing stories to the internet.
