So, last night we went out to dinner with some friends/former colleagues and decided to order anything that lit up.
|Case in point.|
Also, the subject of this here blog came up, and our friend Denise said “You know, you should have merchandise. Like, a picture of you wearing a Friendapalooza shirt on a mug or something. People would totally buy that.”
Me: “Um, who would want to buy that?”
D: “People! You have fans!”
Me: “Yeah, but that sounds like a lot of work. I mean, I didn’t even blog today, I have a hard enough time keeping up with that.”
CB: “By the way, speaking of your fans, they’re going to be maaaaaad at you.”
Me: “Wait, why??”
CB: “Because last week you said that though you were traveling for work and wouldn’t post on Monday, you PROMISED to post Tuesday.”
Me: “I totally suck. I didn’t post.”
CB: “I know. So all of your mug-buying fans will be writing you hate mail.”
Me: “I deserve it.”
Silence, sipping the glowing drink.
D: “Anyway, so I think you should have merchandise like the Bloggess does.”
Me: “Um, I am nowhere near the Bloggess. She’s hilarious.”
D: “She is. But YOU’RE hilarious too!”
Me: “And should have a mug to prove it?”
Me: “Maybe we should put CB on it. He’s very popular with my readers, they love them some CB.”
CB: “What’s not to love?”
D: “Perfect! A CB mug! And it could be, like, the back of his head since you never show his face, with a CB quote on the front or something.”
Me: “Um, I think you guys are more into this than is maybe normal?”
D: “No way, your people want CB mugs!”
So, you know, I’m sorry that I’m not giving you guys the obvious merch you’ve been dying to buy. I’m a terrible blogger, and not just because I didn’t write yesterday. I’m so sorry! I’m a monster!
However, to make up for it, I’ll blog tomorrow and, as usual, on Friday. And if I don’t for some reason, it’s because I’m busy designing mugs.
