Creative title, no? I'm just speechless. And anyone who knows me, knows that NEVER happens. I'm still working my way through mail that's coming in faster than I can read, let alone respond to. I thought I'd just post a couple quick highlights from the thousands of comments I've received.
QUESTION: Are they all yours?
ME: That is SO funny! ROFL! Did you just come up with that?
QUESTION: Maybe I just didn't catch the sarcasm, but your feet aren't really amputated, are they?
ME: Yes, they are. Did you catch the sarcasm that time?
I've had numerous comments from people who'd had a bad day, who'd just received bad news, who had recently had surgery and were in pain, or who had just gotten home from a horrid shopping trip with their little ones. They thanked me for brightening their day and giving them a laugh. They thanked ME. Little ole me. Plain, ordinary me. Wow what a boost! Let me tell ya, it feels great to know I made someone feel better.
I've also had countless people write to tell me their own shopping experiences. (I'm saving those to read later.) Thank you for sharing!
I've had innumerable emails from moms (and dads and grandparents and teenagers) telling me that they could totally relate to my story and thanking me for letting them know they are not alone.
I had one (literally ONE out of the thousands of emails) person write and tell me that her kids always behave perfectly in public and are never a source of public humiliation. To her I said-
:::sound of crickets::: OK, that about sums up my response.
For anyone interested in numbers -
As of right now, I've had 18,417 people hit this blog today (despite the fact that the traffic had it down for a while there this morning.)
I've had 149, 023 people hit my auction.
I have 2,736 watchers on this auction.
I've had 1/2 a cup of coffee instead of my usual 6 because I feel like throwing up from all this attention.
I had to call in 2 reinforcements (ie grandma and grandpa) to watch the little ones today so I could sit on my butt reading mail.
I've had 18 finger cramps from typing too much.
I've had 3 job offers.
And we've got about 2 hours to go on this auction!
