Well, this happened to me the other day. I try to spend about 30 minutes every day (which quickly escalates into
In a recent email I received, Pinterest sent me a link to a crippling board...BREAD! It is no secret that I love bread. It is my kryptonite. If the government or any other agency wants information from me, tie me up, place a loaf of French bread in front of me and I will spill my guts to get to that bread. No need for water boarding here...bread gets you the answers. I would even tell the secret ingredient to Grandmother Ruby's cornbread...the threat of her coming up out of the grave to poke out my eyeballs doesn't scare me!
Soooooo, being the good pinner that I am (remember, I'm a good pinner, not a good tweeter), I clicked on the board link and started pinning. After about 10 minutes of pinning breads to my BREAD board, I wanted to be sick. I have never even seen that much bread in a bakery!! And I was starting to smell all those breads. At first it was delightful. But then, the waves of nausea started, but I couldn't stop pinning. It was a horrible experience and I just wanted it to be over. I began doubting my love affair with bread. I mean how many recipes can there be for the "Best Homemade Dinner Rolls Ever" and how do you know which one is the best??!! I even posted a "How to make PERFECT Cornbread" recipe! What??!! I have that recipe sitting downstairs in the kitchen, WHY do I need another one??!! But seeing all those pins just turns your brain into a loaf of French bread or pancake batter or lightning bugs or whatever it is you are pinning!
Some of you might say the nausea could be caused from something other than pinning bread recipes to a Pinterest board. I will clear that up right now. I'm 53. The only thing I'm expecting is to have arthritis in my pinning finger!
And here's the crowning jewel.....the total irony of it all! While I'm writing this post, the hubby sends me a video on Facebook. Now, he has no idea that I'm writing my blog or what said blog is about. Watch the video!
PS...click on those darker words for it to take you to the links...I love sharing things and that includes my sickness! :-)
