I Can Only Do Awkward Introductions, So Here Goes

How I imagine an in-person meeting will go:

Legend: Me – Kim (me) Any text in italics indicates self-commentary. Doesn’t everyone silently talk to themselves?

The Masses – you. I am going to re-create what I imagine your response(s) will be. What could possibly go wrong with that?

Me: Hi, I’m Kim Lehnhoff. I am 64 years of age, and am married to Mister Lehnhoff. I have wrinkles, a bit of gray hair, and two 2021 model titanium/ceramic/resin hip replacements. TMI?

The Masses: Hi, Kim! Nice to meet you! I am (state your name).

Me: Oh, no! Names! I never remember names! Don’t all of you introduce yourselves now – it’s MY post, after all. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll come back and leave comments, and we’ll be besties and we can see what we have in common, and how I can convince you to see things my way. Doesn’t that sound like fun?

Years ago, I blogged at The Ratio of Failures. It has been retired, and is no longer available for viewing. My lawyer advises me to say nothing further about this subject.

The Masses: What kind of content can we expect from you at Flirting with Normal?

Me: Damned if I know. I plan on writing about my life, my family, and my interests. Topics will include:

  • My hobbies (reading, writing, my mediocre crochet abilities), and annoying Mr. Lehnhoff
  • My lack of focus about all chores in the domestic/housekeeping category
  • My love of my family. I bet your family is filled with miscreants and weasels. I’m sure we’ll have lots to talk about – spouse, kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.
  • Some items on my bucket list
  • Weird shit I argue about with Mr. Lehnhoff
  • Maybe we’ll discuss current events or maybe we’ll keep our pathetic opinions to ourselves, shall we?

Me: I figure we’re done here. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll all come back for all the fun! I’m sure you’ve all exited the building by now, like it’s on fire.

Me: Oh, just in case you didn’t know, I am quite fond of sarcasm and/or hyperbole. I also know next to nothing about WordPress, and would appreciate any tips you could give.

About Kim

I've returned to blogging after a long hiatus. Seasons change, as do seasons of life. I'm now retired, still married to The Mister. Mom, grandma, great grandma are some of the hats I wear in addition to wife. Lover of books, swimming, chocolate, and sarcasm (but not simultaneously - the books will get wet and chocolatey). I dabble in crochet and writing (fiction, non-fiction, and poetry). I may occasionally write about crochet. I will most definitely write about family, and how being a grandma is the best gig in town. My original blog, The Ratio of Failures, has been retired. This is my second (and final act). Let's raise the curtain and start the show! I hope you'll join me, and leave comments so I don't have to talk only to myself. Join me in Flirting with Normal!
