The Rogue Speaks:
On occasion, I have posted a few vacation photos on my blog, and so have some of my blogging friends. Many of them are very talented, and I always enjoy seeing them. BUT please don't invite me over to see the 100,000 photos you took while on vacation. I especially don't want to see these--"That's me by the fountain." "Also me by the fountain." "another angle of the fountain." "Me again." "This one's a little blurry, but if you squint, you can see me with my husband Todd in the background." ARRRRGGG!!! Actually, you can show me ONE of the fountain. But since I already know what you look like, DON'T BE REDUNDANT. And for God's sake, throw that blurry one OUT!
I used to save every single photo, but not any more. If you must save the ones that failed, PLEASE don't show them to me. Instead, cut them up and make a collage!!! Then hang it in the master bath, preferably above the toilet.
Do you really think that your friends want to be subjected to every single hour of your vacation commemorated in a photo??? Just how many photos of the Alps can you have in your collection? If you say 100, please forget my name and phone number. Just pick out the very best 2 or 3 to show to your friends, and put the rest AWAY!!!!!
Please don't show me photos that you took of family members in the car while you are driving along. And don't take photos of people with their mouths full of food. Don't show me every single plate of food that you consumed while away. I know what food looks like.
Unless your hotel room looks like it last hosted the Sultan of Brunei, don't add those 20 photos to your collection. If it does look like the Sultan stayed there, please don't show me the toilet area. Again, show 2 at the most!! (just NOT the toilet!)
O.k., let's say that you spent your vacation at a very large family reunion. "That's my second cousin, Jed, or maybe Jude. I don't remember." We're happy that you have a large family, we just don't want to see them. Unless, that is, they are highly unusual and entertaining. That's doubtful, though, eh??
Finally, put yourself in MY shoes. Would you want to come to my house and see all of MY vacation photos? Hmmm, I didn't think so.
That's my offering for Alphabe-Thursday. Feel better, Miss Jenny! We all adore you!!
