Talking to a Celebrity

Last night I was reading MckMama's blog (like I often do). I found it to be very interesting (like I always do) so I left a brief comment (like I sometimes do) which ended in a somewhat rhetorical question (like I rarely do).

Within a few minutes, I noticed an email in my inbox from Disqus which is the comment thingy on her blog. I thought, "Oh, someone must have responded to what I said. That's nice." And then I realized who the response was from when I opened the message...

mckmama wrote, in response to Chrissy:

Yes, it does make perfect sense!

Link to comment:

Oh, my gosh...I think I started hyperventilating.

Josh pretended to be excited for me. In a made-up, girly voice he said, "OH, MY GOSH! SHE REPLIED TO YOU?!!"

I didn't care. I was genuinely excited.

"Well, I'd understand if she was a celebrity or something," he continued (in a normal voice this time).

Who the heck does he think he's talking about? Of course she's famous. Man, he has a lot to learn.

So I just wanted to share with you my brief excitement. It was a fun moment for me. You know, talking to celebrities doesn't happen every day! ;o)

This is really funny to me.

Dan sometimes asks if I am talking about a bloggy friend or a live friend.

And when we were getting married I did, and he would laugh when other knotties emailed me about wedding stuff.

I think its interesting how connected people are in different ways because of blogs!

Debbie said...

That is funny. My husband and I both get excited when I even get comments on my blog. It is the highlight of my day, so I understand your excitement about MckMama. I get that way when Kendra over at Preschoolersandpeace or other moms with many followers replys to my comment. I am amazed to even have 13 followers.

I would have totally been excited and the hubby would have been just like Josh. Hello, Mckmama is way better than some 10 minute celebrity, in my opinion.

Causey Fam said...

How fun! Isn't it funny how we categorize people? She probably doesn't see herself as a celebrity at all. But it is so exciting for us ;o).

Jessica said...

LOL! I saw a comment on there from you on one of the posts I commented on to! How cool that she replied, I'm excited for you!! =)

Hahaha, isn't the blogging world fun? There is a whole world of "celebrities" that I never even knew! (btw, my hubby would so say the same thing)

Mama (Heidi) said...

WOW!!! that is soo awesome. I totally would have had your reaction and my husband would have acted just like Josh.

Sonora said...

I would have reacted the same way. Sometimes I will see that she has visited certain blogs and I think, Wow, I wonder how I could get her to visit mine!

That's great she replied to you!!!
