To Twitter or Not Twitter

My husband, the technology guru in this household, has tried to convince me to use twitter for a few months now. He even created an account for me...something about branding and getting my user name or something or other.

I wasn't too sold on the idea. I mean, who wants to know what I'm doing all the time. For example, if I had tweeted this morning, it would have said something along the lines of

"just pulled into the parking garage at the urologists and heard my 2 year old throw up all over the back of the car"

Followed a few minutes later by...

"as soon as the elevators closed, my 2 year old said she needed to potty really bad. No potty in site...slow elevator!"

I might have even ended with

"2 yr. old running around doctor's office in younger brother's diaper and nothing else. Extra clothes were used after the throw up incident."

Really, who wants to follow me and know all that? I'm not even sure I want to know all that.

Regardless, Brent seems to think its a fun thing so I thought I would give it a shot. Feel free to follow me or not. We'll see how well I do at this whole twitter thing.

She wasn't actually sick...for the urology appt. she can't eat anything 4 hours before but she can have juice. She never drinks juice so for her to drink juice on an empty stomach just upset her tummy. On the bright side, it was only juice throw up and not real food throw up =)

I vote to resist the social norms! I have been avoiding myspace, facebook, twitter and having more than one email account. As a teacher I can say that younger generations are growing up without and people skills. Hiding behind social networking sights sets a bad example for the kids...I limit texting and computer time while Zerrin is around, but usually wait till he goes to bed.
