Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a trend. I seem to be getting a lot of hits on my review of Mocelli watches. This is pretty cool! When I look at the stats I see that starting about April there was a big jump in the # of daily views. Many of them that watch review, but many others as well. Come for the scam, stay for the story! my grandmother used to say.
No, she didn’t. I made that up.
She did say, though, “If someone says a bad word, just don’t hear it.”
And she said, when she was talking about how to make bread, that you grab the flour can under one arm, and sugar can under the other, and when you’re measuring, you “take one hump of this, and two humps of that,” and she would kind of shrug her shoulder and pretend to be shaking the flour or sugar into the bowl. I never understood whether it was two parts sugar to one part flour, or the other way around.
I was going to tell the story of how I saw my grandmother’s breasts once, but I decided I don’t really remember what happened. It could have been just in her bra. Not sure. So I don’t want to go back to those repressed memories.
Not sure where this is going. I started out on watches, and now I’m onto incest. Ew, gross.
In more interesting news, my 15-year-old daughter told me tonight she isn’t entirely convinced that Earth is a sphere. She thinks there’s a non-zero chance that the flat-Earthers are right. I smacked her upside the head and said, “Don’t believe stupid stuff.” She tried to defend against the smacks by holding up her cat. So I flicked her on the forehead instead.
This whole post has been uncurated. I’ve just sort of let myself write things down and see what comes out. This is not Writing Practice (I already did that) and it’s not a pointed Personal Expression, where I have something important to say. It’s just my thoughts on today.
I know, pretty low-quality stuff right here.
P.S. I started reading Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. It’s pretty powerful stuff. I’m rethinking my “angry white boy doesn’t give two shits about the world around him” stance.
P.P.S. I checked the stats. Turns out my Mocelli watches review has 109 views so far in June. The Home Page / Archives has just 9. Apparently I’ve done something right to get that page into some kind of preference for Google searches. May was just as lopsided – something like 230 views for Mocelli, and like 45 for the next most popular page. So I got that going for me.
