The cartoon ANIMANIACs had one of the characters saying
“I wrote a song about it” in a stuffy-nose voice, with a British accent.
For years, our family uses variations of the line in many situations.
On the way to breakfast this morning, Husband was driving along past a sign with an arrow pointing to a very promising Garage Sale.
I mentioned yesterday’s great find of 25c for a bag of yarn.
“I wrote a blog about it” I said.
“No, you wrote a POST about it, on your WEBLOG” replied Husband.
This led to my mind jumping around the meaning of post.
There’s the actual upright structure, like a fence post
and the verb, to post a letter or weblog essay
or where you are, like the POST Office
He waited until I got done mumbling, then said something about the old days when somebody would nail a note on a post for all the townspeople to see.
He ended with the line:
“You should write a post for your blog”.
and so I did.

ps We stopped at the garage sale on the way home.
He bought something, and I think he’ll write a post about it.
