Well, that was embarassing.

28 Mar

In my first effort to shamelessly promote my presence in the blogosphere, I wrote my first and only comment on a strangers post. And inevitably, I humiliated myself.

Investing little thought into a complex, strategically executed “publicity” scheme, I logged into my blog, read a catchy headline featured on WordPress’s homepage, followed the link to SweetMotherLover, read a witty post, and redirected myself to the “about” section.

My brain started racing.

“Maybe this is man is my BFF internet soul mate. We will shamelessly validate and flatter each other with daily comments, links, and inside jokes.”

After reading further, I realized he was a she. So, instead of writing anything endearing, I wrote…

“Interestingly enough, I assumed you were a male from your writing until reading your “about.” Hm….Don’t analyze too much into that, but it did catch me off guard! Hope you get that book deal :)”

You’re probably thinking, why, oh why??? Well, I am too.

After I submitted it, I read over it and laughed hysterically. Who would write that?? Concerned with my subconscious gender stereotyping, I did some backtracking to understand why I assumed SML was male. Was it her aggressive, yet stoic satire? I worried that I had innately correlated intelligent writing and offhand humor with the male sex.

And then I caught it. She kept referring to “wifey.”

Turns out SML is a lesbian.

I am officially a monster.
