Reaching Out to New Readers

Derek (NativeMinnow): People keep telling me to date this girl. I like her as a friend but I don't know that it would work out.

Me: Yeah. A girl can be cool but that doesn't necessarily mean it would be a good match for a relationship. Like that girl Joey... I like her as a co-worker but I probably wouldn't ever want to date her.

Eleanor (my wife): What? Who's Jodi?

Me: Arrrghhh. You should really read my blog.

Eleanor: I'm your wife. I shouldn't have to read your stupid blog to know what's going on in your life. Tell me about Jodi. Why haven't you told me about her?

Me: This is the first time I've had a chance to talk to you since last weekend.

Eleanor: Who's Jodi?

Me: I really wish you would just read my blog.

(Extended conversation---
Eleanor: Is she pretty?
Me: I have no idea. She's probably prettier than I think she is. A bath and a brush through the hair can go a long way.)

To the other readers of this blog: You have to believe that these words don't really do justice to the conversation. The actual exchange was hilarious.

The correct response to "is she pretty" is of course

"Beats me, I haven't been able to drag my eyes off her GIANT BREASTS."

To get a more accurate picture, first you need to picture the lines being delivered by Lou Diamond Philips and Madeleine Stowe (my wife's established alter-ego).
