Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair...

...like when you're trying to keep up with other bloggers for instance.

No, I'm not talking about how other bloggers seem to have 1,609 followers with 217 comments per day...

Huh?

No, of course I don't look at those things when I visit other blogs.

Do you?

But...

I have this blog friend, PJ, who is amazing. I mean, seriously. She is intelligent and funny and kind and compassionate and witty and I would say that when I grow up someday I want to be just like her (but I can't because technically I think I might be kinda/sorta older then her already and we're not talking about emotional maturity on my part here, Missy!)

So, anyway, in addition to being all the things I said above, PJ had one special follower that I have been unable to get out of my mind.

She actually had a body part follower.

Huh?

Yes...she had a body part follower.

And not just any body part. It was a serious body part.

Oh, don't go running over there to look now because the body part has since been banned from her followers list which I personally assisted her with because I am the master of all things technical related to blogs...(cough, cough)

Darn, be right back!

So sorry. I was choking there after that remark and I had to go get a drink of water.

But I'm better now.

What was I saying? Oh yea, because I am the master of all things technical (cough, cough) PJ asked me how to remove said offending body part follower which I actually knew how to do.

So she followed my step by step methodical instructions (cough, cough) and removed it.

And that should be the end of the story.

But it's not.

Because now I'm thinking to myself "hey, I have never had a body part as follower!"

Sure, you're wonderful and sweet followers and all, but seriously, am I not worthy of a body part follower.

It doesn't have to be a serious body party like PJ had...it could be a or even a Of course PJ writes just wonderfully which you can see by visiting her post today and I admire her for that.

Perhaps I admire that skill even more then having a hoo haw for a follower, if only for a short time.

But secretly perhaps I don't.

Yes, I said it. PJ had a hoo haw for a follower and I didn't. Ever. I never even got an to follow my blog.

And I'm not really bitter about this even though it might sound like I am.

But I do feel all cheap and dirty now admitting that I'm envious of PJ and her previous hoo haw fan.

But that's what followers are for, right?

To admit our deepest fears and longings and jealousies.

Even if we aren't admitting them to a hoo haw!

Sigh.

OOOH! OOOH! Let me be the first one to comment!!!

"I laughed! I cried! It was better than 'CATS'!"

Very, very funny! I thought I had that all, ahem, behind me or beneath me.

And that, children, is what today is all about: accepting and welcoming people, er ah things, that may be different than you.

Kim said...

well....you have to have something to wish and dream for I guess. Not everyone can be so lucky as to have hoo haw for a follower. I sooo look forward to your posts Jenny- you can always make me smile. Can I ask- how do you get rid of a follower that is not so desirable? Is it difficult? I- obviously- am not so technically skilled :)

Flat Creek Farm said...

No, thanks, no body part followers for me, please! :-P Love it though, what a hilarious post - thanks for the chuckles! -Tammy

Hi, Jenny. Thanks for the comments and following with more than just a body part! To answer your question, the canned pancakes actually tasted very good. (I like anything that is easy, and if my husband is doing the cooking, it's even better!)

I've really enjoyed reading some of your posts. I love your sense of humor... hmmm.... I'm an Aries, too!

Your secret pie crust is incredibly similar to my grandmother's which she titled "Mrs. Halten Hyden's Pie Crust" and uses just 1 teaspoon vinegar. By the way, my grandmother was born in 1901 but don't know when she wrote down her recipe.

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Oh Jenny... sometimes I laugh so hard at your posts I can't stop....

I am so glad I know who to go to if that situation ever arises on my blog...

Fresh Local and Best said...

You are hilarious! What an odd thought, a body part follower.

Sheila said...

Jenny thanks so much for stoppin' in at my blog.. If you had not paid me a visit i would not have had a very cleansing laugh today.. YOu know the kind.. YOu laugh so hard you pee your pants kinda laugh.. Any way i will keep up with your blog. I feel it may be very intresting...

Julie Schuler said...

As a big fan on anatomical.. er.. stuff.. I think it would be great to have a body part follower, as long as it was artfully dissected and had pedagogical merit.

laterg8r said...

i hope you win the sharpies so you can give yourself your own tattoo - perhaps of a hoo haw LOL :D

Linda said...

Just when I think I've heard of it all....well this was a new one on me. A body part follower! I am laughing so hard I am having trouble typing this. Ok, deep breath, a whoo haa! no wait you said a hoo haw! seeeeee....i'm dying here. Ok, thanks and IF some undesirable hoo haw or whoo haa in my case becomes a follower YOU will be my go to girl.

Theresa said...

Well Jenny, I guess there is a first time for everything:) I have not had any body part followers either! She is lucky to have such a smarty pants friend... errr I mean smart friend:) Loved this story! Enjoy your Monday!

Sarah said...

You keep me in stitches! Thanks for sharing your wonderful sense of humor, my friend. ~ Sarah

Susan said...

Jenny,
Loved the post.
I can't be a body part follower, but I can be a dachshund follower.
Have a great day in the sunny part of the U.S.
The boys are off today for the holiday and we are cleaning house. I don't think they like their job. *{:o)

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

OK, Jenny! OK! 'Aunt Amelia' has a bone to pick with you, Hon. You are so cute... That you lost me this time. -sigh-

Now I know, I'm dense at times, and clueless and all that. [After all, I am pretty ancient!] But still, it's not nice to 'lose' me. [She had a "what" for a Follower?!?]

Now unless you want to have to think of Ol'Aunt Amelia over here, sighing and moaning and pouting about not understanding your post... Well, then, I guess you'd better explain it, to me. -pout-

Please. Pretty please. Pretty please with sugar on it.

^_^

sissie said...

Well darn, I can't believe I missed that body part follower on PJ's blog! Shoot!
You are so funny and I hope that if I ever get a watchamacallit on my list, that I can depend on you to shoo them away.

Paula said...

I heard about PJ's bodypart follower and I too, for a split second...was jealous!! LOL...definaletly one of the funniest blog stories I've heard!!

Justine said...

Get out... she had a hoo hoo follower, huh? And how did this hoo hoo type? Ya know, to leave comments?

Justine :o )

Mari said...

Ha! I'm thinking it's just a matter of time till it happens to you. And when it does - we want to hear about it~!

Together We Save said...

Thanks Jenny!!!

Multiple personalities.. said...

Seriously?! A hoo haw for a follower?! How does that even happen? Now I want one to follow me just so I can see exactly how it happened. Ha ha! Yea, I'd be jealous too. :-)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Awe shucks, Jenny.... I don't have a body-part follower either... OR--maybe I should take a closer look at mine. For you see, many of my followers are just "lurkers"---so who knows who they are.

In the meantime, I'll be sure and tell all of the body-parts that I meet --to come and visit you!!!1 Okay???

Hugs,
Betsy

All My Yesterdays said...

Hee Haw for the Hoo Haw! How Dang FUNNY!! Wonder who else will have that follower?? Not sure what I'd do if I saw that on my blogs...Well, ok, I'd call you to fix it for me. Course I might have to take a good long peek first..hehe
Thanks for the laugh Jenny. Now I need to go meet PJ..

Martha's Favorites said...

Jenny the party planner: Body parts as followers are not good. Stay away from these kind of people. Someone needs to take care of you. Love, Martha
