sleeping with the enemy

After a record-breaking 2 “0” comment posts, I received these comments on yesterday’s blog. My initial response was a little “ouch” twinge, to think that some random anonymous person thinks I don’t have “it” anymore.
I shook it off, responded politely enough, and then got on with my life, but it still bugged me a little. Then, I realized who it was.

Let’s take this apart piece by piece.

“Woah… You’ve been rockin the comments lately. Might want to call it quits! Throw in the towel. Give us the ghost! ?”

excessive exclamation points, excessive figures of speech, use of the term “rockin”… misspells the no doubt complex word “up”

“up… up the Ghost. (we’ll at least you got another comment out of me..)”

Manages to correctly spell “up” this time, but capitalizes Ghost, both an indicator of Charismaniac backing, and a Random Capitalization Disorder (RCD), and uses the contraction for “we will” (we’ll) instead of the far simpler and more appropriate “well”, as well as ignoring most basic punctuation laws.

It came to me. And as I sat across from the treacherous anonymous commenter on my couch, I posed the subtle question, “Did you comment anonymously on my blog today?”
Ah, the telltale guilty smile and evasive answer.
I press harder. “I know it’s you….”
He turns brightish pink, all the way to the top of his bald Viking head and back down. I then explained my deductions, and broke him.
Son of a gun.

    I'll comment and compliment – I love you Jess! My lack of comments come from a combination of knowledge of your busy-ness, my own personal craziness, and lack of visits to le blog.Have a happy day!

    I would like to say that in addition to the errors mentioned, and a few that were not mentioned, "woah" should have been spelled "whoa" and most likely followed by an exclamation point.I try to educate the people whenever i can.Sorry for your trouble, Jess…and in your own house!
