We still have some formatting kinks to work out with this blog, but after a trial run of a few weeks, we decided to remove the password until such time that we decide we want to be controversial enough to have a password again :)
We are aware that removing the password opens the content up to a bit more scrutiny, and that was a little intimidating. After all, I’ve already admitted that there’s a big pile of clean clothes on at least one of our guest beds, a situation that I further attributed to self-assessed household laziness. That might not make us look good.
On the other hand, I doubt we are the only people to experience the disconnect between drying and hanging clothes, and if I were to read that on someone else’s blog, I might feel a bit of relief and solidarity. I might even befriend that person so as to share related stories about staying up until 1:00 in order to move the clothes that I forgot to wash before midnight from the washer to the dryer before going to bed.
On yet the other hand, if I read that someone prefers Pizza Hut to Mr. Gatti’s, I might silently cast poxes on them every time they write or say anything ever again.
The point is, everyone judges different things, and as in the speaking world, the decision to say things comes down to whether to be quiet because someone might think poorly of you or to risk talking because then people might actually learn enough about you to like you. Or identify with you. Or feel relieved that you said something stupider than they did. I think these are all valuable gifts to give.
I feel like this would be borderline poetic if I were talking about something other than neglecting to hang up clean clothes.
