A Talk With My Blog

I had a talk with my blog this morning. Naturally, it was a she.

"Hi, honey, how are you?" She said.

"I'm good, I'm good." I replied hastily, looking for my socks.

"Where are you going?" She asked.

"RIS." I replied. "And I have to leave quickly if I want to make the Jummah."

"We hardly spend any time together anymore." She suddenly started to moan. "You have changed."

I looked at her, sighed, and then sat down at my desk. "It's not true."

"Oh, yes." She sniffed. "It has been almost a week since you posted on me. I remember when we first met, and started to get along, you would post every day! Sometimes even twice a day. And then you began to get bored of me. Twice a day became once every two days, then once every four days, and now... this!"

"It's not like that," I tried to cut in, but she was on a roll.

"Before, you used to check me every hour for a comment, and then reply immediately. Now it will be a day as the comments lie around, before His Highness gets to approve them and then if he feels like it, reply."

"It's not true." I protested. "I have just been Super Busy with work. Everyone was winding down for the Christmas holidays, we had to do this, we-"

"Oh, please! Don't get coy with me." She hissed angrily. "I know you have been spending time with those other witches."

"Witches?"

"Yes, what's her name? Yes, Ms. Facebook. And that other blog, Crescent Canuck."

"Oh honey," I tried to soothe her. "they are just friends. It's you who's my true love. My first. I only love you. I swear!"

"Really? Then how come you never write poetry for me anymore? I know you wrote one for Achelois!"

"No you are being ridiculous!" I got angry. "I don't want to talk about this anymore! I am going to RIS and we will discuss this when I get back."

As I stepped out of the door, I could hear her vent, "And where is that article you promised me? You liar."

Be sure to bring some nice posts for her when you return. Depending upon how mad she is, you may even want to get her a new CSS Stylesheet. Since I am a recently bloggified guy myself I cannot say much. Got to go, I hear my blog calling.

The Bengali Fob said...

Hahahahhahhahhahahhahhahhah!!!

Oh please pick me off the floor.

I tell you, you are so well prepared for married life Mezba that it is scary! Your wife should be able to take notes from this excellent post!

I agree with her though. Yours is one blog I'll check even while eating breakfast and I miss it so much when you don't post.

I love your wit and yes, I love that poetry! You sure can rhyme, Nowal is right. Thank you so much!

I'll read this to Aly now.

Rezwan said...

You cannot satisfy everyone! However SHE gets the priority.

katy said...

You know she'll never forgive you, digital women made of text are far to jealous of text writing men. Tsk tsk.

mystic-soul said...

Very well written. I enjoyed it.

But is it true ke....mujh si pehli si muhabbat mere mehboob na mang (don't ask for as intense love as it was before?)

mezba said...

Mousehunter: Lol but I do have a lot of cousins who are married.

Saqi: I will. I have been meaning to get her a new look but how do I tell her she looks date now? And it seems like she wants some pictures too.

Bfob: Your should say "post... mezba...tag..." lol

Khonika: thanks.

Anon: I returned home late too. Mrs Blogspot shoved the comments in my face. Not even a smiling welcome.

Suroor: thanx chick! I will post a bit, just too to do in the last few days, and only 1 body to do it all in. And Nowal better praise my poetry, even though my friends thinks hers is better!

Rezwan: I will give HER full priority.. but work is busy you know...

Katy: Nice to see you back! I will try and soothe her with a whole new series of posts (and all interesting topics too) shortly. Promises promises, I hear her mumble.

Mystic: thanx. I think you are right. Another reason I can't blog now as freely is too many people I know in real life found me out.

'liya said...

You shouldn't EVER leave your wife in a bad mood!
