Blodging

"Blodging again?" my husband called out as he passed my office this morning.

"It's blogging," I responded. "B - l - o - g - g - i - n - g. Blogging."

He turned around and came back to stand in the office doorway. "I don't know what blogging is," he said. "But, I do know the definition of blodging."

"O.K., I'll bite," I answered. "What's blodging?"

"Blodging is dodging what you should be doing by blogging," he smiled.

Sigh. He's got me there. Another word enters the lexicon of the blogging world.

Pardon me; I need to get back to blodging.

I love it! I'm adding it to my vocabulary (but please don't tell my husband!).

I know for a fact I'm in trouble, because my husband has started reading my blog. Hence the use of those dictionaries.

So keep your husband off the net and I'll keep my husband from emailing yours.

Uh oh. I'm guilty too. Very guilty. In fact, I think that's my picture in the dictionary next to that definition. Quick fM! Sell that dictionary... get it out of the house!

Now that you mention it, it does look like you.

"Out, damned dictionary! Out, I say!"

I LOVE it :) Like right now, I should be finishing my lunch hour. Blodging is much more fun.

You're giving my husband a big head. It's his word.

Funny isn't it how many of us it applies to?

Well, I just read your post about your anniversary that sent me to this post.

Well, I must be a blodger too. If we are blodging, then we can have the verb to blodge and the person must be a blodger.

Now to get some work done. I am having too much fun blodging.

The only thing that's saving me is that my husband is a bigger blodger than I am!
