Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are all off to a productive and prosperous start to the year. Most of you have no idea who I am because I have not been plugged in at all. But that's going to change. It's going to change now! And it's all because of Pat—oh yes, that Pat.
Pat Howlett called me out this week...and maybe he has done this to you, too. There I was innocently looking at I919 page that had no activity when I was blindsided with
"You don't keep your word!"
So, I very Arnold-esquely reply, "What you talking about Pat?"
Then Pat in a very Willis way repeats, "I said you don't keep your word! I asked you months ago, "Will you commit to adding 1 positive item to the community each month?"
(OK, just bear with me on the Different Strokes thing—I didn't plan to carry it this far, but here goes...)
I say, "So?"
Pat says, "So? So you replied, "Yes."
I say, "Well, I've been busy."
Pat says, "So? We're all busy and you don't keep your word."
So, I run to the kitchen where I find Mrs. Garrett and I tell her what Willis (Pat) said. The part of Mrs. Garrett is played by my inner conscience.
She says, "Well, you know, Willis has a point. You should either change your reply to No or do what you promised."
So I weasel my way out of the kitchen, up the winding stairs and to the bunk bed room and apologize to Willis and promise to do better.
Now, just to make things clear...this all started when I went to my own I919 page and read the second question (Pat's only sinister involvement was putting the darn thing in the profile).
Have you read your page and profile lately? If not, look. Maybe you used the same three letter word I did and have since done nothing, too. Pat actually does not ask for much—even a comment suffices.
So, as a result of all this I immediately updated my profile and today I am writing this ridiculous blog post. (One that I am considering deleting). And now I am off to view that video that Pat suggested when I view when I joined, but I never did.
Lastly, I will end with a request: please add any comments you want. But, if it's about how corny this post was then again you can blame Pat because he was the one who said we can't be boring.
hope to will write to you again soon.
