Comment-Love Letters

I got this blog post idea around the time when I started getting more then 2 or 3 comments on each blog post.  

Then recently, I discovered Unknown Mami.  She does a post called 
I Comment Therefore I Am.  where she creates a post from the comments she has left on other blogs.  It's a great post and has inspired me to give my idea a shot.


The post below is created solely from the comments made to my posts over the last week, Monday through Sunday.  To my own surprise, I was not able to use all the comments that were left on my posts.  So I had to pick and choose and tried not to play favorites.  See if you can spot yours.

I think, for my first time at this, it turned out hilarious. 

So, Thanks to YOU, my comment-love leavers.

Dearest Kerri@Kerri's Klutter,

Where have you been hiding?!  I found you on SITS today, and I'm so glad I did.  I do not have a ton of close girlfriends here so the blogging community is really a gift. I haven't prepared a speech or anything but I suppose I should start by thanking the decay in my right eye tooth, for without that decay, I would never have had the experience of having a gaping hole in my mouth and been able to write such a ridiculous piece of literature. 
My neighbors all just went to a sex toy party.  So smart!  I think it would be hilarious to go to one of those parties! They said they giggled for 3 hours straight!!  And, Oh gosh yes, after a certain age you have to be so careful to hide presents. 

So...does your husband usually win the over/under yard mowing bet? It is nice to have some blooming plants in the house in the middle of winter. I have work to be done, but space out the torture.

Do you grow orchids?  Lovely flowers! I've often found, the great friendships, the ones that last - they start out slowly & grow gradually.   I think that was really very well put.  Amen, Sister.

So, have you read the book yet?  What a sweet story!  Teleportation grocery shopping would not be good for me at least...there would be a never-ending supply of peanut butter so much so, that I might turn into a peanut!  I do not like grocery shopping most of the time.  Though, I doubt I'd be brave enough to buy anything other than something completely innocent. It could turn quite embarrassing... That book has gotta be a best seller!

It dawned on me that our children are what we teach them.  Your 3-year old sounds awesome.  We love to sit and talk too, particularly on the stairs. I do not know why, but sitting on the stairs is fun and can take 30-60 minutes. The best part of talking is that their topics are so darn fun and cute and lighthearted.

I have about six pounds of tilapia and flounder in the freezer, so we'll be working on using that up.  I came very close to eating tilapia tonight, but I didn't really now how to cook it. We love grilled pork tenderloin.  Although I am going to be honest (and please don't hate me for this), but I may not actually "do anything with it."

And oh, how true.....

Friends that you would lay down your life for are an incredible gift, and something to treasure! It's so rare, and yet so wonderful, to have friends you can share that sort of bond with!

Hahaha!

Well congratulations, Kerri! Your enthusiasm put a BIG smile on my face this morning - although I don't think I jumped around and did a dance. ;) 

You're the best!

Now, I must go find an appropriate outfit to wear.  I'll be wearing heels and sequins. Count on it.

Make sure you rip the duct tape off in one swift move. And I know that sounds weird...

oh yeah..
WHOOP WHOOP
almost forgot.

Sincerely,

Your biggest fan.

Keep it up it should become interesting. I came here from Unknown Mami (aka comment queen).

Your commenters leave longer comments than most. This game might prompt some to leave some strange stuff to see if it gets used.
