With all of the recent election hoopla in the US, many bloggers posted opinions, regurgitated newsfeeds and reminded readers to get out the vote.
And apparently it worked.
I posed the question last week as to whether or not citizens living abroad should influence a national election. And I enjoyed reading the comments and emails regarding the question, as well.
Instead of boring readers with a photo-less blog post or digging through my bags for the picture sticker of my own little yellow dog, I borrowed photos from Photodropper, the WordPress plugin that shares free top-notch photos with the blogosphere.
That was just an example.
Thinking I would share the love in last week’s post, I highlighted a photo of an elephant and a donkey.
Well … last night I got in trouble.
I called my mom and she jumped right in.
“Your sister showed me your website!” Uhm …. why does she sound pissed?
“Ok.” I answered nervously.
“I can’t believe you posted that picture!”
“Which one?” I’m utterly confused now.
“The one with the elephant and the donkey!”
“Well, I was just being bipartisan, Mom.” That must be why she’s mad!!
“You need to look at that picture again!”
So, I did.
Little did I know the donkey actually had the elephant in a compromising position. I wondered aloud what that extra red thing was sticking out.
“You need to go back to anatomy, Cherrye.” Is all she would say.
She made me remove the offending image with the promise I would look more carefully in the future before posting unapproved photos.
So I called my sister … “TATTLETALE!”
The morale of the story is:
No matter how old you are – no matter how far you go … your mother can still tell you what to do!
