Dear Mr. (or Ms.) Angry Anonymous Commenter Person,

Hi there.  Welcome to my blog!  It appears that a search this morning for "kfc three is the magic number" led you here (I'm thinking England is running commercials featuring the "three is a magic number" song, although I thought they might be for McDonalds, given the other recent searches that have led people to me.  I could be wrong, though - it has happened.)  It deposited you on a Random Thoughts Thursday post from back in October, in which I happened to mention KFC.

You may or may not have read the post.  I can't really tell.  But I appreciate that you left me a comment letting me know how you feel about my blog, and, apparently, me in general.

I love comments.  Regular visitors here are well aware of that.  Comments make me feel good.  They make me feel like people are actually reading what I shoot out into the blogosphere.  I write for myself, but I wouldn't be blogging it if I didn't want to share it with other people, too.  In fact, I like comments so much that I didn't want to miss out on any that might be left after I've stopped paying attention to the posts, so I set my blog up to require moderation of comments on posts older than 7 days.

Which is how I was able to notice your comment so soon.  So I thank you kindly for your opinion and welcome you to visit again any time you'd like, although in all likelihood you're long gone and will never return.  Perhaps it's better that way, for both of us.  It would probably never have worked out between us, anyway.  I just wanted you to know, though, that I appreciate the irony of your comment and enjoyed a good laugh this afternoon as a result.  Thanks!

You may not care about my life, but I do, and that's all that really matters.

Still laughing,


  1. But they managed to leave that comment on a post with several comments, so who knows, just a bitter cranky teen.
    And (possibly because I don't have kids) I am still laughing about the Pull-ups whenever it crosses my mind.- which for the record, is much more than it should.

  2. Excellent response to someone who, obviously, has too much time on his/her hands.

  3. Family blogs have a more limited audience, yes, but the readers of these usually know us and care more than the average blog reader :)

  4. I haven't read the comment, but I think it is bizarre when people leave nasty comments on a stranger's blog. I don't know what they could say about your blog - it is interesting, fun, and well written.

  5. I care about your blog --- and the three year only featured in it that hides her pull-ups under her bed. I too am still laughing.

  6. I once got a comment on my last blog asking if my post was some kind of joke. (it was about my love of Rush Limbaugh..who I have a love/hate relationship with) It burned me, because it was said in such a "you're kidding me! Ignorant yokels like you still exist?" kind of tone. But, as my dad always says..the empty gourd rattles the loudest!

  7. Lol. The irony of it is, they actually took the time to write something which means they care...even if it's just a little. If I really didn't care about someones life, then I would just ignore them.
    I bet they start blogstalking you. You are now someone they love to hate! Watch for their URL on your stalking detector. :)

  8. In all fairness, I've been secretly blogstocking. I enjoy reading your fun posts.

  9. Thanks for the comments, everyone!

    Carrie, I will totally be watching for them! The stalkee stalking the stalker, love it!

    Jackie, I love blogstalkers! Being one myself, I welcome them (and you) with open arms! The ones who make stupid, mean comments will have to deal with the aftermath, heh heh, but I like people reading my silliness, and old friends are always welcome!


Will blog for comments
