I was reading blogging for dummies yesterday and one section discusses how not to embarrass friends and family. A line in the book says call it the Mom test. Will your post get you in trouble with your Mom? So last night I called Mom just to chat and catch up.
Mom "I didn't like what you wrote about the children."
Me " What children ?"
Mom " The stuff about poopy diapers."
Me " It was supposed to be funny."
Mom " I know but I just didn't care for it."
Me "But it was things children really said, you liked Art Linkletter "Kid's say the Darnedest things."
Mom " I know but I just don' t want to read about poop."
So I am making a list of things Mom doesn't want to read about. Guess what goes at the top of the list? You got it poopy diapers. Mom in the future if I write about poop I will call you and tell you not to read my post that day. I'm on my way to the phone right now.
