I HAVE A BLOB!!!

Remember when I told you about my MIL a few months back?

She is still as sweet as ever.

She is still a classy dresser.

And yes, she still misconstrues words like no one else.

Case in point.

Nana came over for lunch yesterday.

We had a great visit.

One of our conversations went like this:

Nana: Do you still have that blob?

Me: Yes. A blob over here.(pointing to my thigh) A blob over here. (pointing to my midriff) And a great big blob back here. (pointing to my rear end)

Nana: No, I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about that thing you write on the computer.

Me: Oh, my BLOG? Yes. I still write on my blog. I love it. Some of my best friends are in my computer.

Nana: (dead silence) ( clearing her throat) (cough)

I am sure she thinks I am crazy.
But atleast I know the difference between a blob and a blog!

* A small reminder. Nana doesn't have a computer. Nana doesn't need to know about this post. Let's keep it our little secret...mmkay?

Susan said...

Cracking up over here!!!
Sounds like Nana needs a computer...or maybe not.

Off to try to do a post on my blob.

Sue said...

Congrats on your Blob! And a very good one it is!

Chelle said...

Ha! Love it!

But I so agree with you on the friends through the computer.

Everyone (except for my friends in my computer) thinks I'm crazy when I talk about blobs, I mean blogs, that I love :)

Nana sounds great. But lets not get her a computer... :)

Krystyn said...

That's too cute!

Your/Nana's secret is safe with us!

Emy5 said...

I love reading your blob, I really do. Great job Nana. Thanks for the laugh!

Kristen said...

Um I am totally hoping that I am one of those best buds on your blob!!

Because seriously when I saw on gmail that your message said your computer was back from the hospital, I did the happy dance! :)

So glad you are back my blob friend!!

Patrice said...

LOL! Oh my gosh crack me up! lol too funny! I am gonna write a post soon about people's responses when they find out you have a blog.. it's pretty funny!
"Some of my best friends are in the computer"- that's my favorite! So true for us all!

I love your response when you thought she was asking about blubber. That should go down in family history. This whole post had me laughing out loud!

Dawn said...

Crack me up! As your friends, we promise not to call your mil up and tell her about this post. ;-)

Elaine A. said...

I would have been SO offended if she'd brought up my BLOB! ; )

Seriously, that's too funny. And I am gonna go ahead and say that you are pretty safe from her finding out about this post... just a hunch.

Nana is hilarious.
I'm with you on the blob characteristics.....as I have quiet a few, I consider myself a blob expert.

Stephanie said...

Nana is a pretty funny lady! Always charming and amusing.

I, for one, LOVE your BLOB!

snow said...

I know Nana which makes this entire blob thing even more hilarious and totally believable;)

I need to get moving and reduce some of my blob sites as well.

Karen said...

Ellen Gillikin said...

Wendi, girl you crack me up? I never know what in the world you will write about next. I think that it would be an interesting "treat" to come stay with you for a day or two. You should consider that as your next "give away"! I bet that your "peeps" would be lined up to win that one!
till next time.....

Megryansmom said...

Hi
I've challenged myself to read some new blogs every day, so I've decided to stalk, er I mean follow your blob for a few weeks.

stephanie howard said...

OKAY, I AM LAUGHING SO HARD I AM CRYING!!! ONLY NANNIE MAE, OUR “SORTIE SOPHISTICATED” MIL:-)

McMommy said...

Wendi, let it be known....

I love your blob.

All of it.

Beachy Mimi said...

Love your blob. I get the same silent reaction when I talk to people about my friends in the bloggyworld. Your secret is safe! Sweet Nana.

HappyHourSue said...

NOBODY who doesn't blob gets that you can have actual friends through blobbing. I've learned not to mention it.

pb&j in a bowl said...

One of my favorite things about blobbing is the fact that I am 100% sure that my MIL will never read it.

Leave It To Lyla said...

OH LOL @ Nannie Mae!!!!!!! I love that lady and your cute stories about her!!! I am trying to catch up on my BLOB reading and forgot just how much I LOVE yours!!!!

Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

It's nice to know that somewhere between the preschool and elder years we somehow develop the ability to use words correctly (the correct words, too!).

Love your blob!

And I'm a bit curious if she's imagining that all of your friends are actually IN your computer!

Rachel said...

too funny!!

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

And a pretty popular BLOB too, you might add! hahaha :)
