Twitter - all the juicy details

I've been pretty absent from my blog lately. Between our Indiana house selling & offering on a new house in Oregon, it's been hectic. Wait, those aren't the REAL reasons I haven't been blogging. The blame is really on Twitter.

I've been doing it for awhile, but I'm really enjoying it more & more everyday. Here's an explanation on how it works. The little tidbits that come across from people all over the globe can be insightful & hysterical. It's become second nature to type in things that are happening in my life. If I find a good deal on milk, I'll twitter it. When traffic is backed up, I'll twitter it. When a child pooped their pants at Walmart, I twittered it. When a blister pops in my new workout shoes, I twitter it with a picture. My followers get all the juicy details before anyone else.

I'm gonna tell you the only problem I've had with Twitter. When I send someone a picture from my phone it's super easy. I do it several times a day, so I'm good at it.

Problem is, when you want to send your husband a picture of your cleavage cause you've been seperated for over 3 months & don't want him to forget what he has waiting for him at home.

You type in the twitter email addy instead of your husband's. Within a minute of posting it, your husband calls you & informs you that your "girls" are making their internet debut on Twitter.

So I run downstairs (hanging up the phone by accident on the way) only to discover I've closed everything out. Twitter pulls up, I delete the tweet.

Ahhh....breathe....relax. Call hubs back.

Ross says "I CAN STILL SEE IT!"

Oh shoot! It has to be deleted from Twitpic too. *point, click, click, delete* Ahhh...there we go. Hopefully no one will notice.

I sit there clicking the replies tab & the refresh button waiting for someone to comment. My fears were recognized when SadeeLady (Selena) says "@mandyconforth what the heck is that a pix of? Looks like an unmentionable, or was that the point?"

Dang it. Someone saw my bits.

I direct messaged her & told her of my horrible mistake. She replied with "CAN'T STOP LAUGHING! must breath.....oh! my head. It huurts 2 laugh that hard!"

Which made ME laugh uncontrollably.

Anyway, no one else reponded. THANK YOU JESUS!

Hubs & I (and Selena) had a good chuckle.

And the "girls" are in hiding.

When I said my Twitter peeps get first dibs at all the juicy details...I wasn't kidding.
