That’s what Mike said recently. It turned out to be an honest-to-goodness, in-your-face, people-to-people kind of lunch. So Ms. Sword-Chinned Bitch, Madame Weebles, and I said “Hellz, yeah!” and it was a date!
Okay, so maybe I didn’t say “hellz,” but I definitely said “yeah!’ And while Ms. Sword-Chinned does actually have a beautiful sword-chin, she’s hardly a “bitch” in the human usage of that term. Ultimately, Madame Weebles wasn’t able to make it (fuck!) and Mike had to make-do with a harem of two!
No, I did not take any photographs of the participants because there’s no witness protection program for the blogosphere. Whew!
What I found out is that the flesh-and-blood people are not that much different from the ones who reach out through their blogs to tell their stories and share their thoughts. Although Mike did confess to some bait-and-switch tactics (as in “Dear God, please let me keep my hair at least until I get married!” Does your wife know there’s a balding man in her future?) he’s kind, thoughtful, and funny. Sandee has her own brand of quirky humor. While it may seem dark, there’s a sweetness deep inside that keeps me coming back…maybe it’s her fondness of cake. How can anyone who loves cake not be sweet?
Both Mike and Sandee are published authors. You can check out Sandee’s book, Mean-Spirited Tales, here and Mike’s book, Sarah Gives Thanks, here. Just sayin’, in case you haven’t finished your holiday shopping!
I enjoyed meeting my blogging friends in the flesh. It’s nice to put the names, faces, and quirks together!
