I discovered this morning that this man chose my "Big Brother is calling" post as a runner up here. Now don't get me wrong- it's totally cool. And totally intimidating. Because...

Suddenly- there's pressure...

Not internal-I-need-to-find-a-restroom-right-away pressure, but "is-this-post-just-as-witty?" pressure. Am I entertaining enough? What if I gain thousands upon thousands of devoted readers? How will I keep them coming back? OK that just might be a little far fetched- but you never really know what could happen... Right? And really, just how does BooMama do it every single day?!!

(Deep breath)

I used to think that I wanted tons of readers every day. It was a thrill to have 200 hits on a WFMW post. But frankly, it seems like a lot of work to be popular... So I think I'll keep on being myself. Hey- I might not get invited on a blogging trip to Uganda, but at least I'll be able to sleep tonight without worrying about what my next witty, yet culturally relevant, and spiritually challenging post will be about. After all, it might just be about something really deep, like this.

I've got no wisdom here, but I understand the pressure. Some days, it's not easy being the llama momma.

Having read "This," commented on same, and contemplated the ultimate possibilities of your thoughts ... I am now on a higher plane.

I bow.

I can only dream of what it would be like to live the glamourous and exciting life of the Llama Momma!

If only... sigh... I'll just have to comfort myself with yet another sunny, warm day in California ;-)

The fact that you identify so easily with my warped sense of humour- well, it scares me just a little ;-)
