I was at the BeyondBT/SerandEz shabbaton, for reasons I still don’t completely understand.
For any of you who were wondering what kind of bizarre people blog – having met them, I can say that they are people just like you and me. In fact, one them looks just like me, and some of them look just like some of you. There seems to be a disproportionate amount of English majors among them, but otherwise, they’re mostly normal. The BT contingency were also normal folk, but I don’t think there were any English majors. You might meet them in the street and not be able to tell the difference between them and an FFB. Scary, isn’t it, when the religious status of a person’s lifetime is essential shidduch information.
Anyway, a friend of a blogging friend was trying to convince a fellow’s mother that I was just the girl for her boy. She began listing all my sterling virtues, and, running short a bit earlier than she’d intended, fell back on plain ol’ information about me. “…and she had a blog,” she enthused to the mother.
“A blog…?” asked the mother uncertainly. “Um, isn’t that bad for shidduchim?”
Now how did she know that? Someone must have blown my cover…
