Comment Jealousy

Saying for the Day: I just want to be first, that's all.

I have a confession to make. I suffer from comment jealousy or at the very least comment irritation .

Its all because I helped my wife set up her own blog so she could leave comments that didn’t have my name on them. I do nice things for her like that. She has jumped right in and is commenting away with real gusto.

So now when I go viewing through my usual blogs , the one’s I have links to, there are her comments. There is her picture. I feel upset.

I think it comes from my childhood. I always wanted to be the first one to tell my family whatever the good news was. It really irritated me when my sister got there first. I wanted to be the one to tell them.

When my first son was born I wanted to be the one to tell everybody but I made the mistake of telling my mother first. She got to all my relatives before I could. That irritated me.

Now I like to tell Betty what ‘s going on in Mimi’s blog or Catch’s blog, or any other blog on the list. When I see her picture I know she has already been there and got the information before me.

It really isn’t fair because she blogs at night and I blog in the morning so she gets a head start.

I hope I can come to grips with these negative thoughts before I say anything. After all she does control my oxygen.

News from Pigeon Falls-As a last bit of introduction here is a repeat of a last year's post.
Mrs.Hilary Henry had here fifth and sixth grade class write three line statements of what they liked or disliked about Pigeon Falls. Here are some of the things they wrote:
Where else can you see a drunken moose on the main street.
All the trains coming and going are fun to watch.
We have the best parade in the country.
I like pigeons and the pigeon statue.
We have our own song, the Pigeon Song, co co co.
There is nothing to do. I hate it.
We might see a white rabbit in a pink sweater.
Walking on the yellow brick road to the mill pond and swimming.
Lots and lots of pasties. We have the best pasty makers.
Pastor Marvel and his funny costumes makes you almost want to go to church.
Family saunas at Jack's Sauna. We are really clean.
Great stories like the pasty eating bear. If I see a bear I'll give him a pasty.
Mrs. Hilary thinks they are pretty good answers. Well I'll keep you informed.

Got a birthday card from my sister Dawn with two Michigan Lottery tickets. Each had nine seperate games. Not a winner in the bunch. B etty and I spent most of the day designing, cutting out, painting, and building the Garage for Pigeon Falls. It was time for Toivo and Eino to have a new building. Well I need a breathing treatment.

That's like pinching your clients, Doc!

Especially when it takes months to build up a readership of, in my case, three!

Ha ha! Take t easy! :D

I think that I am a lot like you in that aspect, at least you share your blog world with her. My husband knows of my page and read it in the very beginning but he wanted to start his own page and then I became jealous, what if more people liked him. I have a hard time with him wanting to do everything that I do sometimes. But I have gotten better at it. I always read your blog first thing in the morning, I may not comment until the afternoon when I have collected my thoughts and I have more time. In matter of fact I hate being the first poster, I read your blog this morning before anyone posted and I had to wait and come back!!!

Dr. John, I can tell you from experience: Always, always, always save your sweetest words and kindest actions for the person who controls your oxygen! Though I'm sure the lovely and patient Betty would never dream of dealing with you in that way . . .

The kids' essays were great! A drunk moose? Pasties??? I'm beginning to imagine Pigeon Falls as the ultimate television mini-series!

I think your post was good.
