Because I’m boring and/or afraid of change, today I had virtually the same thing that I had for lunch yesterday, only at a different joint and with a different busy business lady friend. I mentioned to my busy business lady lunchmate that I was going to take a pic of my lunch so that I could blog about it later, which inevitably opened up the conversation to the fact that I have a blog.
My busy business lady friend asked, “What’s your blog about?” And I was all, Um, I guess my blog is about food and being a dad and mustaches and stuff. And my busy business lady friend was all, “Oh … well … that sounds … interesting.”
It’s funny because I had been pretty disciplined about keeping my life as a Glamorous Busy Business Lady and my life as an Awesome Fake-Mustachioed Dad Blogger separate, but lately the line seems to be blurring more and more because, you know, #yolo. I’m quickly discovering that coming out as a blogger is almost as harrowing as coming out as gay.
When I tell people that I write a daily blog, they’re usually like, “Well, maybe it’s just a phase?” Or they’re all, “Have you tried actually writing something real, like a book or something?” And I’m all, Why can’t everypony just accept me the way that the goddess made me! Sheesh! And then I blog about my feels and stuff.
Meanwhile, there’s a distinct possibility that my busy business lady lunchmate might visit my blog and think to himself, “Hey! I’m not a busy business lady! I’m a busy businessman!” By way of explanation, on Lazy Dad’s Guide, busy business lady is a gender neutral term, kind of like dude or bro or hot mess. This might help explain things further.
Fun fact: my busy business lady lunchmate today is the uncle-in-law of my best pal editor mommy. Small world, amirite?
