Drothers Day and other post-lets

May 11, 2008

in Uncategorized

Now that I’ve written for a whole year (today is my blogoversary and this is my 222nd post), I notice I have begun to reference myself. A lot. In my last post — actually my sister Tami’s post — I linked to previous topics of mine 8 times. Such self-referencing takes navel-gazing to a whole new level, doesn’t it?

Speaking of Tami’s post. Please go over and comment as you did on Sheri’s guest post. Tami has spent her whole life coming last. She knows that lastin sequence doesn’t mean last in significance, but show her some love anyway (there I go again. And again. And again.).

I’m not mentioning the Hallmark-ness of this day. Instead, I am dedicating this postlet to Pamela Jeanne and LoriBeth, and am co-christening today “If-I-had-my-druthers” Day” (or Druthers Day for short).

Pamela Jeanne and LoriBeth, I honor the unique and pervasive loss you and others experience on this day.

Joanne, I hold you and the motherless daughters you represent in my heart on this, your first motherless Mother’s Day.

And for anyone else who greets this day with maternal longing in your heart…

Sending you all big love.

Sign up now, and from May 25 through June 25, and commit to leaving at least 5 comments every day (or averaging it out) and responding to at least 1 of your comments.

Comment inside the IF community. Comment in other communities you frequent. Cross comment and get to know new people. A blog is not required for you to participate.

If you do have a blog, you can get the code here for your sidebar. Make sure you sign up by midnight on May 24 (EDT). At this writing, there are 124 participants! See Mel’s post for more detailed instructions.

Reed (5) has informed me that he has a nickname. And that I should call him by it.

“Sure,” I say. “What is it?”

Skateboard Awesome Dude, Rockin’ Chancin’,” he replies, adding, “but not G’fancin’. That makes it too long.”

(He has no skateboard. He’s never been on a skateboard. But he is an awesome dude who rocks. No clue about the chancin’ or the g’fancin’.)

Maybe we need to explain better the concept of “nick.”

(“A nickname …[is] usually used to make names shorter and thus easier to say.”)

I’m gearing up for another round of Lori’s Childhood Trivia. Stay tuned.
