Mouth Almighty, Tongue Everlasting!

562 people who like “Sheila Morris, Author” haven’t heard from you in a while. Write a post.

Alrighty then. This is the first time a Social Media Monitor has scolded me about too few posts so I am jumping right on it.

Let me begin by apologizing to the 562 people who like me on my Facebook Author page, and I will add my apologies to my 706 FB friends on my personal page who apparently have no advocate and my special apologies to the 18 followers I have within that 706 friends.

I imagine there is some overlap in these numbers since I don’t have 1,268 people that give a tinker’s damn about me to be either a friend or follower or page liker. Regardless, the Social Media Monitor has now given me an “F” for failure to post, and I have always been an overachiever so this makes me feel very bad.

I’ve had a few mitigating circumstances this week which should count as excuses for not writing a post, but they are quite lengthy and convoluted and, in the end, probably add up to be no more viable than the dog ate my homework. Sigh.

Hey, wait a minute. I just checked the date of my last post, and it was on the 20th. of February. If I’m not mistaken, today is only the 25th.? So I am being reprimanded for not posting in the past FIVE days?

Whoa, Nellie.

Attention, attention, attention Social Media Monitor: you are way too quick to jump me this week…there’s such a thing as too many posts which might lead to my being accused of having a Mouth Almighty, Tongue Everlasting which is my new favorite saying that I learned from my good friend Kati last night while I was losing money playing Shanghai.

I see this phrase re-appearing in future posts – I can think of a prominent person at this very minute whose Tweets represent a Mouth Almighty and a Tongue Everlasting. This should be fun.

Stay tuned, and have a fabulous weekend!

  1. How dare that bossy little prefect give you gip without doing their homework first! We’d better watch out for a telling off too. Will be out at the back of the bike shed having a fag to avoid that 😉

    As “they” say on the Internet, “LOL!” I’ll leave it at that so the Comment Police have evidence of my response. 😉
