Much more interesting when we disagree...

Setting: Kitchen. I'm cooking with male-type-roommate-person. I say something. He says something. We both laugh. Then...

Him: You should blog that.

Me: It's true, this conversation would be totally blog-worthy. Only, as it is I already write about stuff you say so often people are going to start thinking we have a thing.

Him: Good point.

Me: When what my readers lack is the awareness that half of everything that comes out of your mouth is sheer lunacy. But it makes much more interesting reading...

Him: [Chuckles and raises an eyebrow as I continue.]

Me: Whereas your wife? No matter what she says, for the most part I agree! As she does with me. Half our conversations go like this - "This is what I think..." "Me too!" "You're awesome." "YOU'RE awesome!" "Yay us!"Good times? No doubt! But totally boring reading! Then with you? Endless writing potential...

Which works out nicely for the book, since there it's so much easier to set up context in a single written body...
