Hey peeps. So there was an article this past weekend published in The New York Daily News that featured myself and two other wonderful bloggers. Cue the hate mail in the comments section. The comment that I feature in this video is from that section. The hater’s final sentence was,
“A woman will fall in love with a ham sandwich.”
So I’m not going to, shall we say, deconstruct the sandwich. However many of the men and women who are in similar immigration situations decided to rise up. Through their blogs, and on facebook, they took up the challenge of writing 25 reasons why they love their ham sandwich:) You can check out some of their posts on my blogroll. Read them. Read them all.
I think that what my fellow bloggers/facebookers did/are doing is great. However, in my situation, I perform a show where my husband is a main feature, and I blog a lot about him. I know that a public list of 25 reasons would make him literally wince in pain. I’m grateful that he lets me speak out as much as I do publicly about his/my/our lives, and I want to respect his comfort levels.
And like all of us who are separated from our partners due to draconian and inane immigration laws, I miss him like the devil. I literally don’t think that I could do a list of 25 reasons today without losing it completely.
But I also want to play with my fellow bloggers! So, a little humor. Turn up your speakers:)
A big hug to all of you who also swim in the shark-infested waters.
