Snippety Gibbet on the Big Screen

Well, not that screen.



More like this one:



We went to visit friends who had their first baby nine days ago. While we were waiting for Mom to wake up, the guys were looking at vacation photos on Flickr on the big screen tv. When the new Daddy was done with his photos, M googled "SnippetyGibbet" in order to show the new Dad our vacation photos. What Google listed before my blog, were samples of comments I had made on other people's blogs. I waited with bated breath as my words were splayed out all over this giant television in full view of everyone.

When I am commenting on other people's blogs, I feel like I am making a relatively private comment to that person and perhaps, their readers. I never really thought about anyone else seeing them. Welp, that was certainly an assumption based in non-reality. Thankfully, nothing snarky showed up.

Hallelujah.

Ow wild to see your words...er comments up on a big screen. I'll keep that in mind for my future responses on blogs.
