Oh Pinterest, how you tease me with your visual harlotry.
You make everything look so pretty, and easy, and attainable.
But you lie. And you torment me.
Oh sure, there have been a few fleeting moments of success.
Like the time I discovered the best broccoli recipe ever.*
And Bucket Head sure does enjoy the magnet board I put in his room.
And when I saw that I could make an igloo out of recycled milk jugs,
I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Because I’m a freak like that.
Giant milk jug igloo, you will never be mine.
People like me have no business getting inspired to make stuff. It is dangerous.
I should probably just stick with recipes and gardening and funny stuff.
And I really need to remember that you can’t believe everything you pin.
Because those bacon pancakes?
in a word?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to step away from the computer
and get some actual fresh air into my lungs today.
Or I could just sit here and pin some breathtaking outdoor scenes.
Damn you, Pinterest.
*That broccoli recipe? I adore it. But my husband and kids do NOT.
And you know what that means?…more for me.
