Mel Discovers My Secret

I stepped inside the front door and closed it behind me. Mel is sitting at the computer. She spins around quickly, glaring before I can flip the deadbolt on the door.

“Uh oh.” I thought. “This doesn’t look good.”

“What is this?” she asked accusingly. I could hear the emotion in her voice.

“What?” I said, confused. “What’s wrong?”

“On the internet,” she said. “Did you think I wouldn’t find out? Did you think you could hide it from me?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I said.

“You left your Google Reader open,” she said. “I saw it. I know what kind of sites you’ve been visiting.”

“Bike blogs?” I asked, hoping for the best.

“You KNOW what I’m taking about,” she said, folding her arms across her chest.

I sighed. “How could I be so careless to leave my Google Reader logged in while I wasn’t even home????” I thought. “How careless of me!”

We stood there in silence. I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know where to begin.

“Just tell me,” she said. “How long have you been reading fashion blogs?”

    You should write a comic strip of these hilarious dialogues between you and melanie. Seriously! I can't stop laughing…. But now I want to know what fashion blogs you're reading ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Yeah, which ones? Sartorialist in there? I've been looking for some good ones. Ain't nothing wrong with wanting to look good. Just please tell me you're not watching Project Runway. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ah-ha ha ha HAAAAAA

    i love it.

    mel! what else are you letting him get away with?!

  • It will be interesting to see if he fesses up WHICH fashion blogs he follows…

    @marlamuppets- it's like whack-a-mole- each time I put a stop to one thing something else pops up! Any suggestions for keeping him under control? I think its a lost cause…

  • @Liz, Brian – this is neither the time, nor the place for details. But I'll say this: They aren't the "this is what you should wear" type of blogs, they're "this is what I wore today" type of blogs.

  • Careless indeed! Mistake number one is to leave your Google Reader open for spouse to peruse. That is, unless you know you don't have anything to hide. ๐Ÿ™‚
