I seem to have run into a problem, regarding the spreading the news of my blog. I really want to share with everyone, “Hey, I am writing a blog about the subtle joy I find in cursing, drinking and calling my lady parts by funny names. Please come check it out, and tell me what you think.”, but I don’t feel like I can.
The issue I am having is this: I doing a moderately decent job at fooling people into thinking I am not completely bat shit insane. So what happens if some of the people who I keep my creepy away from decide to check it out. What if Mrs. Nevillbottom from my church’s Lady Worshippers group decides to check out my writing, and not only is she scandalized by my love of the word ‘fuck’, but she decides she doesn’t like me anymore, and will not allow her husband to eat anything I make at our church potlucks?
Or my mother? I mean, I don’t care if my mom reads this. She gave birth to me, she knows the nature of my crazy, because she is the one that gave it to me. But what if she decides to ask her friends to read it? Am I somehow responsible if it somehow embarrasses my mom?
But the thing is, I am kind of tired of trying so hard to seem normal. To keep the humor I find in the things around me to myself, no matter how many blank stares I get when I explain that every time I sing, “Praise Jesus Christ whose power uplifts”, I think “Praise Jesus Christ who Power lifts”, and I imagine Jesus at the gym, all buffed out, tribal tats on his biceps, being all, “Yo, my brethen, wouldst thou spot me?”.
Because let’s be honest. That shit right there is funny. It is delightfully sacrilidge!
Does anyone who has been blogging for a while have any tips about dealing with this sort of thing?
