Sadly, being a blogger isn’t always as glamorous as it seems.
I mean, on the rare occasions when we step away from our computers, we’re inevitably dismayed to discover that our online fame and
fortune 4.56 NIS don’t carry the same weight in the real world.
The main problem is that, strangely enough, many people fail to take bloggers’ needs into consideration when making plans and organizing events.
Take, for example, the recent gan graduation (i.e. the mesibat siyum - מסיבת סיום – the end of year party).
Indeed, the resultant post was to have been the concluding panel in my gan highlights triptych.
But when the mesibat siyum finally rolled around, all my hopes and dreams were shattered.
Because, you see, the party wasn’t amusing!
Yes, it was beautiful. Yes, it was heartwarming and emotional. Yes, the kids did a wonderful job. And yes, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
But funny? Absurd? Open to ridicule and mockery?
Not so much.
And so, dear readers, I must unfortunately disappoint you and regretfully announce that there will be no mesibat siyum post after all.
Which naturally begs the question: Is there any reason why the gannenet couldn’t have designed a blog-worthy program?!
