How have you been? I am fine.
Please notice, in the above pleasantries,
that The Prude referred to herself in the first person.
Rereading some earlier posts, I found myself ready to strangle The Prude and shout, “Enough 3rd person already!”
So, unless the situation just begs for a post written in the 3rd person (say, I am too cowardly regarding the topic to actually own it in the 1st person)
The Prude will be ‘I’.
Another change was also precipitated by rereading old posts.
What was I doing?
Thinking I had to post every weekday even if I had nothing to say?
Let me clarify.
I seldom have anything to say.
‘The Prude Disapproves’ is a trifling blog in a world filled with blogs of great importance that discuss weighty matters, or tell you how to make a good béarnaise sauce.
But sometimes the trifles are worth sharing. They provide a little bling to your day.
But some of those old posts–yikes.
What was The Prude thinking? (I prefer to blame it on that 3rd person alter ego)
Therefore, if I have nothing blingy to say I shall say nothing at all.
Finally, I will be cutting the ‘Rithmetic’ part of Readin’ wRitin’ and ‘Rithmetic Wednesdays’ because, after some half a dozen mathematics posts I’ve exhausted everything I know on the subject. We will sub in Hist’Ry on a regular basis and retire ‘Rithmetic’.
And one more finally. ‘Global Village Monday’ and ‘Quirks of the Cosmos Thursday’ were too similar. I am, with great courage, thinking of creating ‘Theology /Civics Thursdays’. (These will no doubt be the 3rd person posts.)
And I shall endeavor mightily to keep the posts around 300 words. This means you have permission to have quit reading app. 7 words before the end of this post.
