As a man of a certain age, I don’t have time to waste on long explanations to questions that can be answered with a “yes” or a “no”; being kept on hold on service calls when my computer won’t connect to adult sites, or when I’m forced to stand behind someone with 11 items at the grocery store’s express check-out lane. These days I feel like I’m running out of time, and I prize brevity for saving me precious moments I know I won’t get back.
Today I re-joined Twitter — again. I’ve come to appreciate the Internet’s toxic junkyard for its succinctness and straight to the point approach to brain farts. Since Tumblr’s demise, I’ve come to depend on it for salty pictures, unsubstantiated rumors, conspiracy theories, pagan witchcraft rituals, fake endorsement, and all of its mind-numbing properties. In the absence of Xanax and temporary male companionship, Twitter’s become my guilty pleasure for indulging in all things I do in the privacy of a public bathroom or under the covers before going to bed. Twitter is my personal “helping hand.”
Oh, but you’ll say…Why so late to the bandwagon? Didn’t you know?
Of course I knew! I’ve just been quiet about it. It wasn’t until earlier in the week, when a fellow blog reader asked me about the lapse in posts, that I decided briefs and updates would be easier to keep than full, 500+ words posts. Not only that, I’ve become quite fond of getting private DMs with revealing images that keep me tossing and turning late into the night. So while WordPress insists on keeping its pages “clean,” I decided to extend my musings to the Twitterverse. That way, anyone who cares to join and read my toots can find out what I’m up to or who is stroking my fire in the evening.
That’s not to say I’ve given up on the blog, knitting, or ranting about things that keep me up at night. The blog remains open and ready for new posts. But if you want a quickie, and I know you do, hop on over and join me on the Twit-verse and we’ll be like birds on a wire…tweeting and blabbing about things no one really cares about.
