I am a Stalkerish Blogging Friend

Don’t think I’m not paying attention to you, blogging friends.  Don’t think that I don’t walk the aisles of Target thinking about you and your blog posts about your childhood dreams and your strange obsessions, because I do.  I think about you all the time.

@whereshappyYou remember your post about the Barbie head?  I commented on it, because like you, I never got the disembodied Barbie head as a child. I confessed that I can also can’t do hair now, and shared my deep dark secret that my mother dared to buy my daughter the toy she wouldn’t buy me.  Maybe that just seemed like a normal comment to you, an innocent exchange, but it wasn’t.  Months later when I was at Target I saw this doll, complete with “Cut & Restyle EXTENSIONS!” and hands with fingernails and I took a picture just for you, so that you would know I was thinking about you.  I didn’t send it to you, but I took the picture…just…for…you.

@amiewrites74I know you haven’t been able to find Cadbury mini-eggs until just recently.  You’ve been blogging about them over and over and over and over.  I’m not as good a friend as your friend Violet – see I even know your friends names and how nice they are – so I didn’t send you a box of them, but I did take a picture of the monster display in the aisles of Target for you.  You can’t really tell, but there are normal mini-eggs, white chocolate mini-eggs and dark chocolate mini-eggs.  You’ve never talked about the dark chocolate ones, so I told you in the comments of your most recent post.  I hope my news offsets the creepiness of my actions.  (I don’t want to let you know that I really don’t like Cadbury mini-eggs for fear I’ll chase you away as my blogging friend.)  #Minieggsallyearlong

So blogging friends, don’t worry, I’m paying attention, and maybe the next time I’m at Target I’ll be thinking of you…

  1. Hmmm… I’m not sure I can be blogging friends with someone who doesn’t like mini-eggs. Just kidding! I would never chase away a loyal reader/blog friend/talented writer such as yourself. Thanks for thinking of me! I will look for the dark chocolate ones 🙂

    1. Just think! It means more mini eggs for you! Now off to go analyze the blogosphere for more creepy Target interactions…

      I love having you as a blog friend! Thanks for the compliments and for entertaining me on at least a weekly basis.

  2. Oh man, that is so funny! Can you believe that I’m 43 and I STILL want one? I think I’m just going to have to break down and get that damned Barbie head–better late than never? I just think that I would be passing some invisible line of weirdness that I will never, ever be able to get over if I do! Thank you for the picture! I can’t believe you still remember that!

    1. How could I forget? Those are the ties that bind blog relationships. The pain of no Barbie is a wound that cuts deep! We should start a support group. I’m sure there are more of us out there with air dried hair that is never braided because Barbie never taught us how!
