So yesterday Betsy called me.

Hesitantly, she told me of her afternoon at Frothy Monkey. She sat down at a table and heard two voices behind her talking.

About ME.

She could hear one of them say, “I mean, Annie doesn’t even pay attention to me anymore.”

And then the other one responded, “Well, I used to see her almost every day and I haven’t heard a peep from her in over a week.”

To see who it was, she glanced over her shoulder.

And believe it or not, my blog and my journal were having coffee together.

I think that’s rude.

[Mainly because they used the last $7.43 of my gift card.]

    But maybe they were talking about me.

    I was waiting for much more drama! Once, I overheard my college suite-mates talking about ME and it was devastating. So thanks for bringing back that memory. πŸ˜‰

    Too funny Annie! Don’t pay any attention to them talking about you. You can’t please everyone. Like the comment above, I was expecting more drama than that when I started reading this post. You crack me up girl!

    This totally cracked me up — I was getting stressed at first because I thought some people were really talking smack behind your back . . .

    LOL! My blog and journal probably feel the same way about me right now! The holidays totally threw off my blogging groove… I’ll need to make amends after Christmas! πŸ™‚

    HAHA! Know THAT feeling very well. I’m headed to incourage now to catch your footy pajamas!!

    I’m thinking you more than made up for it with the footy pj’s post.

    Although I noticed a few glares headed my way from my own computer yesterday–for the exact same reason. The neglect, it is astounding.
