Postus Interruptus

So here it is. 10:42 PM. I'd really like to hit the sack in 18 minutes but that's going to be impossible because the post I had written, labeled, and scheduled for publishing is now gone. Deleted. Ix-nayed by the Ty-man because of the post's content that could have implicated us...

Oh, never mind. Want the full details? E-mail me.

What I'm trying to say is the deleted post was great! It was hysterical! In it I referenced Mulder and Scully, a black hole, sticking it to "The Man" - all kinds of fun stuff! I actually snorted a couple of times while reading it!

Then I asked Ty's opinion. His eyebrows went up and I knew. All over. Fini. The end.

By no means does Ty monitor this blog and tell me what to post and what not to post. But, when it means our future well-being with family, friends, um... the law, I do run things by him first. My fingers tend to type faster than my brain and sometimes the common sense section of my brain shuts off for the day. Ty-man is the calm, thinking-with-his-head-and-not-his-ass half of this partnership and from time to time, I need his input.

So, kick-ass Tuesday post is down the tubes. Insert quick "I just want to go to bed" post instead. It's now 11PM. I can hear the never-accepted accolades for a sad, deleted post fading in the distance. Tomorrow? Another original work that makes me snort and makes you cringe.

And keeps the Ty-man's eyebrows in place, which is always a good thing.

Gosh darned 'common sense' raining on your parade.

I so look forward to your ass-clenching, self-deprecating, self-incriminating, snort-worthy, milk out of the nostrils posts. I am so disappointed we will be missing this one. Maybe you could give it a good identity scrub and bring it back as a piece of fiction?

Teri said...

But which head does he think with? Hmmmm? The voice of reason sure does suck sometimes!!

B said...

Don't you just hate it when reason and good sense win out over "it just feels good" to stick it to someone who deserves it. Hang the consequences, just let me at 'em! Oh well, another day, another post, and maybe you'll still be able to stick it to 'em without doing harm to yourself. :)

Could Ty-Man be my editor too please?

Bucky said...

Sounds like it would have been a good post. Sucks.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Um, email me for chrissakes!!!

H. said...

That just happened to me. I wrote a BRIILIANT piece, and got that note 'um, can you change this? and this? and this? I don't want the parties involved to read it'. Sigh. I just deleted the whole thing instead.

Turnbaby said...

So now I want to email and I hope you saved a copy.

I too possess the power of the eyebrow. Obviously I didn't use it in the past;-)

Gypsy said...

But, what was it? I have to know now. LOL

I love cringing! It's good exercise!

Molly's Mom said...

And? I'm always up for a good story! Plus I'm unoffendable, for the most part -

You have my email...ready, set, GO!

Employee #3699 - I know! Doesn't it suck?

Willie G - Hmmmm, we'll see. Good idea about re-writing it as fiction. Food for thought!

Teri - HA! Smart-ass...

B - Common sense is just such a bitch sometimes!

Britt - I'll send him down right away!

Bucky - Totally sucks.

NATUI - Going to e-mail right now!

H - Me, too. Drives you nuts, doesn't it?

Turnbaby - You and Ty-man must be related!

Gypsy - I'll e-mail you!

Miss Night Owl - It is, especially for the sphincter muscle!

Molly's Mom - Sending it to you right away!
