|Come 'ere lil chicken! I got a present for you!|
Ohmigosh! I love my chickens so much that I bake for them. Here I'm feeding them a loaf of homemade One Rise Baguette. If you'd like the recipe I can...what? You don't bake for your chickens? Are you serious? I mean, I'm totally not judging you...but...seriously? Don't you like....love your chickens? I totally bake for my chickens!
I could be that kind of person.
But I'm not that kind of person.
Here's what actually happened.
This is homemade bread that I baked. But not for my chickens, because I don't bake for my chickens. I'm not even sure if that's really a thing, but it probably could be, because, people. In any event, the reason this is going to the chickens is because (deep breath) it molded. It sat in the cupboard too long. I baked it. Then the boys ended up with the flu. Then my husband was so busy with work I didn't even know when he was here and when he wasn't. Then I got a hair up my butt that I was going no sugar. And we forgot about the loaf. And it molded. And now the chickens get it.
End of (real) story.
|Totally enjoying my mess-up. Totally.|
The point is that we have this huge social network (blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, whatever else the kids are using today that adults can't figure out, etc) and we need to use it to be real.
Real, y'all. Because real helps. It levels the playing field.
Me telling you that I baked for my chickens gives people unrealistic goals to fulfill. (That is, if they don't think I'm nuts.) Me telling you that the bread sat in my cupboard and molded because Life happened—now, that could bring people together. I envision a big communal gathering where people discuss all the awesome ways in which they totally messed up. I mean, wouldn't you much rather know that everyone else biffs it than sit in the corner thinking you're the biggest screw up of them all?
Just keeping it real.
So, hey. Think on all of this. And then go check your cupboards for anything that might be...molding. Then check the fridge.
Peace out. :)
