Why Would You Even Do That?

When I searched for an image to go with this post, "image" brought up nothing.
But "sexy image" brought up this one first. So, I just *had* to share.


Another story from the softball game....

I'm sitting behind a group of women. One is obviously in the process of being dumped by her long time girlfriend and is talking about the "other woman."

Dumpee: This "Heather" is straight, has a family, is a drunk and blogs about all of it.

Friend1: Just what a codependent needs, a drunk!

Dumpee: Exactly, and what type of person has the need to spread out all of their life for other people to read about?


I sat there quietly thinking how judgmental they are. I didn't say anything. Instead, I let their actions show me what kind of people they are.

Would you have said anything?

Wonder what they'd think if they knew I blogged about them?

Dr Zibbs said...

Oh my God look at that picture!

Dr Zibbs said...

And also, that comment you left on my blog today had me cracking up.

~Just me again~ said...

Lol....if only people knew who was lurking around them. Just goes to show there are eyes and ears everywhere.

Bunnylord said...

You need one of those t-shirts that say "I'm blogging this." But, no, I wouldn't have said anything. I try not to eavesdrop and I don't respond to comments that weren't made directly to me.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

Gossiping is worst than blogging about it.

SkylersDad said...

I'm sorry, were there any words after that picture?

I got all dizzy from blood flow displacement.

Bina said...

Sklersdad.. LOL LOL LOL

I wouldn't have wasted my time saying anything to anyone who is that judgemental. It does no good cause they have no idea how completely moronic they sound.

SOLO said...

You had me at bikini.

No, you were right. Let them make fools of themselves.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

babe...don;t say a word and me...I'd hang out with them more. They seem to be a goldmine of blog fodder. hehehe

The pic rocks...just like you. ":0P

Desert Rat said...

I would not have said anything but I would have fantasized about saying something.

I'm not so sure I agree about the "spread out all of their life for other people to read about." I think blogging can be therapeutic, just like writing in a journal, only the writing is legible and one can include [hot] pictures!

Sounds like softball games are the way to go for catching whiffs of juicy gossip!

Jude said...

Are those the softball uniforms they're wearing now a days? Hot, hot, hot just don't slide into third.

I'm sorry, did you have a question?

Akelamalu said...

All's fair in gossip and blogging! :)

annie kelleher said...

i think any one who has a low opinion of bloggers and blogging deserves to be blogged about!!!

Jay said...

Gossiping about other people is wayyyy worse than blogging about what is happening in your own life.

I wouldn't have said anything. I don't like to engage in gossip. Oh, I'll listen to it, I just won't say anything. ;-)

Bond said...

I would have leaned in and said "Actually blogging is very cathartic...maybe you should try it some day" - smiled and moved down the bleachers...

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I wouldn't have said anything - the dumpee is obviously full of sour grapes. I need to find Heather's blog. It sounds awesome!

Seamus said...

Wait! I haven't got past the photo yet! ;)

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

I blog everything, and people around me have begun to get used to it...

Lu' said...

I would not have said anything. It was not a conversation your.

Jaimey said...

I tend to speak up and say something like "Oh I blog. You should try it, and read mine. I will have a ton to tell tonight!"

I'm a bitch what can I say! (shhh don't tell. :)

phd in yogurtry said...

what kind of person? um, I dunno, a brave person? someone interested in our shared humanity?

and no, I wouldn't have said anything. it's their conversation, they can say what they want.

Another Suburban Mom said...

I would not have said anything, if people know you are listening, they won't talk around you and you lose out on precious eavesdropping opportunities.

g-man said...

I wouldn't have said anything, because really, it would have only ended in conflict to which there would be no logical resolution. I have learned it is better to let someone bitch about what they feel because I cant change that.

Nolens Volens said...

Maybe you should wear a shirt that says "Warning: your comments may be repeated elsewhere" ;)

Bond said...

Came back to see the picture since I could not see at work

Worth the time ...no doubt...

Merrily Down the Stream said...

All I can say about that pic is 'oh my!'
My family thinks I am nuts for blogging - the don't read me - they are embarrassed for me...
Ta heck with 'em!

Southern Sage said...

nah i'da just sniggered at em!

ntsc said...

My wife thinks I'm crazy for blogging. One of the blogs I have is her weekly lunch/dinner menu with pictures, the first thing she does in the morning is check what new locations have looked at that blog, she keeps a list by city.

ntsc said...

What picture?

Gina said...

I don't understand blog-haters. What is the point? Obviously they haven't seen your blog. And the pictures you include.

CheekyMonkey said...

I'm a complete bitch so yes, I would have politely tapped on their shoulder and said, "I do. I blog. And tomorrow, you'll be my subject. Carry on. :) "

ppl are such assholes sometimes.

buffalodick said...

Unless somebody starts swinging punches, I let it go...

Biscuit said...

I would have thought of all the witty things I *could* have said hours later, but at the time, I wouldn't have said anything.

Slyde said...

they'd probably get off on it :)

Memphis Steve said...

Those damn bloggers, always causing trouble!

we're doomed said...

Silence is golden. Blogging is all right.

Palm Springs Savant said...

oh, you pesky blogger you! I dance around the blogger stuff all the time, as a lot of people at work and within my industry lurk on mine. This week was a good example, when I posted photos of me at the American Idol finale. I could almost *feel* the buzz around the office that I had been at Idol. Finally someone spoke up and said something I just laughed at all the lurkers who didn't have the balls to say anything nice.

rage said...

I think they are judgmental and I think the fact that you're blogging about them and they don't know it is great! It serves them right in my mind.

I also like the "I'm blogging this" t-shirt idea.

Scarlet said...

Ha! I wonder what they'd think of the image you used when you blogged about them. :)

Knight said...

People tend to be extra judgmental when their feelings are hurt and they feel rejected. I would chalk it up to that.

kimber p said...

i dont get blog-haters. don't they realize that all their whining gives us great topics and opportunities to display pics of bikini chicks?

I saw a shirt once that said, "I'll be blogging about you later"..I'd love to have one of those..lol

Beth said...

I wouldn't have said anything either...but I would have listened in on the conversation and then blogged about the whole thing!

Some people just don't "get" blogging...but they Twitter, Mysoace and Facebook to death. It's all about the same thing....

I love bloggers! I've never had so much fun or met so many wonderful friends!

Laura said...

huh?

did you say something?

Holy Mother of God I couldnt concentrate on anything but that picture!!!!!

No, seriously....I blog about everything that I hear or see - its GREAT BLOG FODDER!

Stacey said...

What search engine do you use? When I typed in "sexy Image" I got some photo of a stock image of a woman making a sexy face.... or at least I think that is what she was going for.

Aunt Jackie said...

That's a hot sexy image... I wish I looked like that. :(

I always imagine somehow that all of my problems would just disappear if I could just look like those girls...

LOL Interesting post... Yeah they probably don't even think of people blogging about them, or even the possibility of it!

Rebecca said...

LOL. I wouldn't have said a damn thing either........
OMG what search engine DO you use?
