I'm sitting at my computer, attempting to navigate through/ around all of the blogging bells & whistles and up pops an email from my mom: subject..."BLOG". Oh Noooooooo.......Oh, YES! She found me!
To paraphrase the body of her email: I may not know how to leave a comment on a blog, but I DO know how to read them. Fortunately, she added a grinning smiley at the end, so my concerns were somewhat alleviated. That is, until I remembered my posting about "The Parking Lot Groper"! Simultaneously, I'm grabbing the phone to call my sister (thinking she had thrown me under the bus) and scrambling to re-read my postings. The parking lot incident wasn't depicted as graphically as it could have been. Meanwhile, I was semi-relieved to learn that my big sis hadn't "outed" me purposely. Seems Mom is more adept at navigating the internet than I'd given her credit for. Since the link to my blog is on my sister's blog, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how Mom crept in here unnoticed. After much giggling, with my sister, about that "parents are coming home early, better make sure you've found any wayward beer caps" (high school) feeling, I decided I'd better call Mom and face the music. Fortunately, I also underestimated her sense of humor and...well....I'm not grounded!
However, now that the cat's out of the bag I must be ever mindful that "Big Mama's Watching"!
