Just curious. You see, the other day, when I posted about the Momofuku Compost Cookies that I had found on Amateur Gourmet, I linked to the AG site…and Adam Roberts (the AG) twittered about my blog post. (Wow! I can’t believe that I used all of these hip words in one sentence. I should have also mentioned, in an effort to sound really cool, that I found out about this while checking out my blog stats on my iphone.)
I said to my husband, “I’ve had like, 200 blog hits today!” He said, “Huh.”
A few hours later, I bought it up again.
I said, “You know, maybe you could make a really cool blog layout for me. So, people come and check out the blog and they will want to comment/subscribe/etc.” “Uh-huh”, he said.
A few hours after that, I said, “Have you ever even looked at my blog? and he immediately responded with, “No, of course not. I don’t care about cakes so why would I read a blog about them.”
That really hurt. He doesn’t care about cakes!!??? What about other sweets? Brownies!? Cookies? Did I miss something? Did he fake his love for sugar when we first met? I don’t know if I can live any longer with a man who doesn’t care about the things in the world that are most important to me**—cakes, cupcakes, cookies and pies! I just can’t handle it. I need some emotional support and if he doesn’t love cake as much as I do—it just can’t work. I can’t imagine telling my family about his lack of interest of the dessert world. I am so ashamed. (Oh, and while I am in full venting mode here, I should mention that while he says he doesn’t CARE about these things, he has no problem SCARFING them down when they are placed in front of him.)
Do your partner/sibling/parent/friends read your blog?
** Of course, I care about my kids more than some desserts. I just needed some dramatic effect.
