Recently some friends and I were discussing the power of the internet. I told them that I had heard about a fella who interviewed for a job, and the interviewer was very favorably impressed until she searched the internet for info about him. It seems he has a blog in which he discusses in detail his daily struggle with mental illness. Oops.
I then shared that when I heard that story I had kind of an “oh shit” moment, realizing that I am unemployed and recently started a blog! One of my friends responded, in an attempt to be reassuring, I’m sure, that I needn’t worry as my blog was “quite tame!” Me, tame?
Another friend asked me why, since I am so 'quick witted and funny" in person, my writing is not funny? Damn.
I’m really working overtime on trying to come up with something shocking and hilarious; something that could cost me a job, ruin my reputation and embarrass my family and at the same time make you laugh or at least smirk. I’ll get back with you on this.
