Do you eavesdrop on other people's conversations? Because I do. And then I write about those conversations in my blog! (Although from a certain perspective, it's not really eavesdropping when the conversation occurs in the office you share with one of the people having the conversation you're listening in on.)
Recently I heard the following chat between two colleagues:
Coworker 1: Hi Baby!
Coworker 2: Did you just call me baby?
Coworker 1: Yes...I believe I did.
Coworker 2: I don't actually believe anybody ever called me that before!
At which time I thought to myself: Well you're about to get the surprise of your life, for sure. Seeing as how I call people "baby" on a fairly regular basis and I'm sure to slip up and call you that any minute now, thereby making your shock complete.
Reminded me of this old blog post from more than a year ago: "She calls me baby."
Yes. The whole point of this was actually so I would not have to come up with anything new and fresh to write today. I just needed a hook to send you back to this old piece that I'm certain at least a few of you never got the chance to read in the first place. It's one of the perks of having a long-standing blog. Keep one of these up long enough and you never have to write anything unique again. You can just send readers back around in an endless loop, reading all the stuff you thought up long, long ago.
