A collection of grievances, memories, occasional musings, and everyday happenings

To Air Grievances: Behind the Title

1 Comment

Welcome to newness!  I am as pleased as punch to inform you my Writer’s Block has been blasted, the blog is brand new, and I got my eyebrows waxed this afternoon.

I am incredibly excited about the blog’s revamp, mainly because it has taken me months to come up with a new title (it came to me in the shower) as well as an actual goal for my blog, which I will now explain.

The title, as you can see, reads COMEDIC GRIEVANCES – Complaining Comedically.  Not just ‘GRIEVANCES’, because that would imply I want to spend all my time and energy pouring out my heart and soul about what’s wrong in the every day life of Holly…Elizabeth…Kooi… siiiigh.  And the tagline does not read just ‘Complaining’, because that would imply I strive to do nothing but complain about whatever there is to complain about.  This is not my plan.  (And there’s too many who do that anyway.  Shhh…)

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ve noticed that the majority of my posts are stories – stories about my childhood, my marriage, my times with friends, my many many many mishaps… (See Archive for: Quite the daughter (in-law) and We Still Love You).  My blog title, to me, embraces those stories and embraces the amusing fallbacks that occur.  So, I shall write those stories (to air), which frequently include some type of hardship (grievances), but each and every story will be told in a light-hearted and enjoyable fashion (comedic).  And while every post will be focused on a different grievance (complaining), it is my goal to always depict each grievance to be amusing (comedically)!

I do hope you understood that last paragraph, seeing as it very much resembled one of those awful mathematical word problems.  But I can assure you that you’ll never be grieved after reading a post – only amused.  And if you’re not amused, well then you can read this as a fallback: Non-Visible Art Sells for $10,000
