Good bloggers read a lot of other blogs. I’ve not been a good blogger. The last three days have made the obvious, as I’ve been reading a bunch of blogs I used to read religiously. I forgot how much good writing there is out there.
One such writer is Lacy, the snarky genius behind the Modern Sauce blog. I quote, “I had to wear more pants than normal like a gaweddeamned fancy person.” She later writes, in reference to sitting on the beach under an umbrella, “This is ESSENTIAL to all of us human vampires that boil in the sun. I felt super fancy with my umbrella AND pants!”
I like her writing because she has a great sense of humor, not in the “sense of humor”, but more a sense of what makes great humor, though the other is true, too. First she makes you laugh with a pants comment and then later, after a few more laughs, she revisits the whole pants thing and you get to experience the joy once more.
I could really just quote her whole post and be done with it, but I think you are strong enough to click on over and check it out for yourself. If you don’t, you’ll miss the photo that accompanies the comment, “They have a lot of food trucks and I like trucks filled with food.”
You see, she is able to make me chuckle without resorting to commenting about bacon. I’m not that brave a writer and will use the cured pork product to entice readers to my blahg at every turn. See, I just did it.
So, why are you still reading my drivel? I just wanted to shine a light on my friend’s blog and get back to the baseball game, so move along…nothing to see here. Go click on where it says Modern Sauce in blue above. Seriously, I’m not joking, you’ll thank me later.
