A word to the wise: If ever you should ask for interest from a Parental Unit, be prepared for a positive response. My dad is coming over to use my Internet and check out this blog today. It’s totally making me nervous.
I know. I’m a grownup. He loves me just the way I am. But still, at the very least I should fix any leftover typos and grammatical errors. It’ll be good for me, build my character, and after all, who doesn’t sleep better in a tidy literary house?
<scroll, mouse clicks, spell check, etc.>
Ack! Smut! I forgot about the smut! What the hell was I thinking when I wrote this post? For a blog that’s supposed to be all about writing, there’s an awful lot of half-naked hunks in these pages.
Mind you that’s a very nice photo of Daniel. Yes, very nice…
But what do I do, now that Dad’s on his way? Do I want to do anything? Should I self-censor? Would I have any actual readers if I just deleted a few pics?
<pant, panic, pant>
“Dad! Nice to see you! Come in, come in.”
“Make yourself at home… What’s that, about the Internet? Oh, sad news, tragic really: we’ve got a nasty virus. Had to take the computer in to the Geek Squad. Guess you’ll have to websurf another time.”
” What’s that? You’ll just go to the library after our visit? Oh, I should have specified. I picked up the virus from the WordPress site after they lost my entire blog. Yes, what a crying shame…”
<pause, cover smile by turning away>
“Coffee? Tea? Crumpet?”
