So, I was talking to Mikey about this blog, saying,
“you know, I’m sick of writing about all this deep stuff! No more! I’m going fluff the whole way, yo!”
He nodded, “uh huh” – he’s heard it all before.
I swear up and down I’m not going to write another big-time post on disability or things that really matter to me – I feel like by doing so, I end up alienating myself on the playground as the “angry kid” – so I’ll save that for my journal, save it for the HuffPo if they’ll have me. I’ll quit spewing it all out on here and on the internets and I’ll keep things nice and happy in this little nook of mine. A pleasant place for guests.
But then. You know what happens.
Something happens and I get all riled up and take to the keyboard, my weapon of choice these days, and have at it.
Every. Single. Time. The same thing happens. “No more of the big-time stuff, I swear, I mean it this time! I’m going the fluff n’ froth route!” – nod, smile (was that an eye roll?), and then the next day, something happens on facebook or wherever and what do you know? Yes. That was another clearly non-frothful post.
I think I’m going to just give up saying this blog is going to be fluffy cuz I keep getting distracted by THINGS THAT MATTER. But I don’t think that needs to stop me from posting the bits about PEOPLE THAT MATTER to me, right?
The people that matter the most, anyway?

And while I’m here talking about fun, feel-good stuff, I’m pulling together the “Blogger in the Spotlight” series over on Down syndrome Blogs. Starting today. We’ll have two bloggers featured each week and we’ll try and make it fun. So bring your coffee on over: Down syndrome Blogs.
Next up: something completely not frothy.
