The perfect blog!
I gazed at the two two-cup Pyrex containers side by side on the counter and shook my head in dismay. “Honey, these two containers are supposed to be the same size and they’re not!” I called to my fiancee the next room over. “Pyrex is supposed to be, I donno, infallible.”
“Mmm,” he replied non-commitally, unable to muster enough chagrin to warrant looking away from his computer. “That’s in a different market,” he mumbled. “Glass storage isn’t their forte, yet.”
I glared at the containers side by side on the counter and shook my head. “I think I need to blog about this. Seriously, folks need to know they should invest in Ziploc* glassware. This other stuff is solid, but not irreplaceable. I mean, unless you like leaking sauerkraut-laced chocolate donuts. Which, fortunately, our son does.”
I’d no soon uttered the minilogue than I started laughing. At myself. Yep. The perfect blog! Other perfect blog titles flashed before my eyes:
- Why My Socks Are Better than Yours
- Bringing Back the Cassette Tape: Let’s Do This!**
- The Necessity (and Winningness) of Shoulder Pads
- Canoes: The Perfect Living Room Accent?
- Teaching Newborns Couponing (It’s Never Too Early!)
There’s definitely a place for posts like these.*** That place is just not on my blog.
I still resist my old doctor’s suggestion that I’m middle aged**. By most accounts, I’m at least a half-decade away. But in moments like those in which I feel an earnest hankerin’ to blog about the pros and cons of assorted glassware, I’m reminded I’m inching closer by the day.
You know what? I’m A-OK with that, as long as I keep on feeling young at heart.
What blog ideas have you nixed as not feeling right for your blog?

*** In fact, I welcome you to write them. Especially the shoulder pad one.
