Just in Case My Head Should be Getting Swelled

Our local kosher bakery has been the site of many a strange conversation or experience over the years. I'm really considering recommending it to some daytime television soap as a perfect location for filming, and hopefully getting a finders fee.

Sorah: ProfK, I heard a rumor that you are now a Jblogger. What's up with that?
Rivka: A Jblogger? What's a Jblogger?
Rochel: How wonderful! Rivka, a Jblogger is an exercise enthusiast. Are you out there every day?
Leah: I thought that researchers showed that jogging isn't as good for you as just plain walking. Do you get much pain from Jblogging?
Sorah: I think that Jblogging has something to do with the Internet.
Leah: Don't be silly. You can't jog on the Internet. You must have heard wrong. Maybe your source meant to say treadmill.

Me: Quietly heads for the back of the store and hides out until the line clears away.

That is very funny.
I'm surprised that people don't know what the term blog means. Even before I started blogging I knew what it was.

There are plenty of people out there who are still not very computer literate and/or Internet literate. I have a friend with a PhD, a very bright woman, but when it comes to computers she is still in nursery school. Any time she sends me an email (and don't ask what it took her husband and I to get her to the point that she can send an email) she calls me to let me know that she sent it so that I can watch out for it, and she then also tells me what was in the email. I'm not even going to attempt to explain blogging to her at this point.

Your right, there are people like that, that is a very cute story.

I suppose because I don't consider myself smart, then anything I know how to do I expect to be basic, and expect everyone one else to be able to do it.

In HS we had some computer classes and I got a 100 on every single test, I loved it and felt that it was all common sense. But there were people stumbling with it, so perhaps it's all based on what your used to. The best way to learn something is to have experience with it.
