Silly Thought About Following

Hey did you ever look at a printed word, a common word, then do a double take because it suddenly looks odd to you?

I was just going through my list of wordpress followers – who I don’t pay enough attention to – and following anyone I wasn’t already following – got that?

So with all the FOLLOW, FOLLOW, FOLLOW, FOLLOWs running down the column the word suddenly looked odd to me.  Odd as in I say this word all of the time and in my head it just doesn’t look like this:


fol·low  ˈfälō/  verb

1.go or come after (a person or thing proceeding ahead); move or travel behind.  “she went back into the house, and Ben followed her”

synonyms:          come behind, come after, go behind, go after, walk behind

2. come after in time or order.

FOLLOW is just funny to me this morning I guess….so I wish everyone a fantastic day whether you’re following the yellow brick road, the Pied Piper, your dream, the instructions, the car ahead of you, a strict diet, the North Star, a news story, my blog, or the road not taken— have a good one!!

And if you feel like it, leave a comment to tell me what you’re following today….

    1. What an awesome reason to follow. I agree with you …I often mirror what I see in others and am interested in learning about different things that they’re into. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment!! xo

  1. What am I following today? I had oral surgery on Monday, so I guess I am following my surgeon’s advice. I was pretty out of it the last few days. I wanted to make sure I came by and visited you and returned the blog love you shared with me. I think I did, but the more blog love I share the better, like Christmas cheer. =) How did you find my blog? I always wonder?
