If you have a Facebook page, you probably know that there are a ton of groups, causes, and such that you can follow, simply by clicking on "LIKE".
If you don't have a Facebook page, you probably have no idea what I am talking about, in which case, you are excused from reading this post. Now, go directly to Facebook and jump into 2011, um, k? Oh, and don't forget to "LIKE" "It's A Schmitty Life".
I have a tendency to "LIKE" many things, such as; Sutter Homies, Moms who need wine, and OMG I so need a glass of wine or I'm gonna sell my kids.
I think I'm detecting a pattern here.
I'm not just about the wine though, really. I follow important stuff too; A Day for Hearts: Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day, Marching for Maddie, and Violence Unsilenced.
See? I'm not a complete waste OR completely wasted, for that matter.
But I've got a question for you. Did you ever "LIKE" something and not know what you were, well, LIKING?
(P.S. I just looked up LIKING on Dictionary.com. Has a word ever just LOOKED funny to you when you typed it? I kept thinking it was LICKING. But that would have been weird because I'm sure you would have known what you were LICKING. Well, I hope you would anyway.)
But back to my question.
The reason for my question is due to a conversation I had yesterday. It came to my attention that some of you are LIKING "It's A Schmitty Life" on Facebook, yet? You have NO IDEA what it actually is.
I went to the school to pick up my youngest children and met up with two moms that I know. I just love these two women and enjoy chatting with them as we wait for our kids to get dismissed.
D: "I saw your Facebook status, you are so funny!" She said to me.
Me: "Funny how? I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to effin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how?"
JUST KIDDING! I didn't say that, but that would have been a riot, am I right? Good 'ole Joe Pesci, that line is classic!
What I really bashfully said was, "Awww, thanks, I try".
D: "Really! You should have a blog!"
Me: "I DO! Don't you follow me?" I asked, although I already KNEW that they BOTH did.
T: "How do I not know this?" Pipes up the other mom.
D: "OH! That "It's A Schmitty Life" thing?"
T: "OH! That's what that is?!"
That, my friends? That would be the burst and deflation of my ego.
