Did you know the day after Valentine’s day is International Bloggers’ Day? Perfectly convenient because you can give your favorite blogger leftover boxes of chocolates, half-price on the shelves, roses (only slightly wilting), or cute cards with red hearts and those shifty cupids, and the word ‘Blogger’ that you scribble in pen somewhere on the front. Bloggers need friendship too. Mix affection with mirth.
Love is still in the air, so think about what your Blogger means to you. All the good times. All the inside jokes. Remember when you spread olive tapenade all over the bread before they could say no. How you laughed. Then ate the bread and tapenade. Remember St. Tropez, you in the striped suit, they in the polka dots, the dog in paisley. How you laughed. Then went swimming in the sea. Days with your Blogger were like that. “We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.” Try to sing that to your Blogger today if you can find the time.
There are many ways to honor your Blogger. Consider naming a street after them in your neighborhood, or making a fancy hat for the fair and naming the hat after their favorite cold drink. So many ideas. You could decoupage some unicorns and take selfies and paste in the Eiffel Tower. I mean, the chances to connect are endless. Try making a pilgrimage to your Blogger’s hometown. Take a look around. The roots of their inspiration are everywhere. Maybe you’ll meet their third grade teacher. Oh, the tales she will tell. As Dr. Seuss says, “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.”
