While I can safely say that my blog issue with my boss is long behind us now (three years and counting to be exact), every once in a while I get a reminder that he did read it and that he does know a few things about me from it. Things that I don't share with anyone in the office.
For example, EBF. (Ex-bestfriend) He will ask if that whole "matter with my friend" sorted itself out.
I lie and say yes.
Another example is when we were talking about a local blogger and how they had their profile "blocked", he pointed out that my profile is blocked also.
I might have squirmed a little in the realization that he did indeed read blog #2. (it wasn't until Pleading that I thought to block my profile)
I also might have said a silent prayer, at that time, that I didn't continue blogging there.
The latest was his arrival this morning. He said hello, appeared to be in a really good mood and then said this to me ...
And I quote ....
"I hope you don't get mad ... but last night ... I was on the computer ...."
That statement alone sent my heart racing. But this time I was thinking, HOLY CRAP I'M IN TROUBLE AGAIN.
He might have noticed how large my eyes got, but I said nothing.
"I ordered you a subscription to People Magazine." "I know you were saying you haven't gotten it in a long time and that you don't have the extra money for it, so I thought I'd do that, then I tried to print out the card and it wouldn't work, so the long and the short of it is it will arrive in 2-4 weeks."
My reply? "Thank you, that was really nice. I do really like People Magazine."
And I left it at that.
