Ok, so I wore my wonderful Blogger shirt today to work. One of our Tool Truck (and what a tool he is) guys stopped in for a check. This is how the conversation went:
Tool Guy: Hey, neat shirt! Are you a blogger?
Me: Thanks. Yep.
Tool Guy: So will you write down your blog name so I can sheckitout? (Yes, he really did say sheckitout)
Me: Uhhh, no.
Tool Guy: Huh?
Me: I don't think you would like it. Its really only for people that don't know me in real life. I wouldn't be comfortable with you reading it.
Tool Guy: (creepily wiggling his eyebrows)Soooo its one of "those kind" of blogs!
Tool Guy: No?
Me: No. Here's your check, buhbye.
I think that if someone that knows me in real life actually came across my blog I would freak. To be honest, Hubbs hasn't even been allowed to read it. It would be different if I lived in a bigger town where there were a few people that didn't know me. But my town has maybe 6,000 people and EVERYBODY knows who I am. Either through my job or Hubbs or someone in my huge family or we went to school together or something.
I think that when (or if) I ever finish my book, I will have to use a pen name as well. I have a fear of conversations going like this:
(disgusted)YOU wrote that book?
instead of going like this:
You wrote (amazed) THAT book?
LoL Its kind of hard to get what I mean actually typed out into something that makes sense.
