How to get what you want and never even ask for it.

Me:  "Did you read my empanada column?"

Him: "Uhm. YEAH! Looks yummy! MMMMMMMMM."

Me:  "Why do you hate me?"

Him:  "What do you mean?"

Me: "Let's not play this game.  You never read my columns.  I work hard on that, it's our bread and butter, and you can't be bothered to read it.  Even though you spend approximately four hours a day on the internet."

Him: "I do.  I skim."

Me: "If I were Picasso, would you SKIM my work?  If I were Feist, would you 'half listen' to my new single?"

Him: *rolls eyes*

Me: See? You hate me.

I think Blaine only started reading my blog so that he would know what people were going to want to talk to him about on a given day. Like, one of his co-workers would start in about something I had posted, and he would be like, "How do you know about that?" And the reply would be, "Don't you read Meryl's blog?" Him: "No, I *live* Meryl's blog."
