"I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard"
Stuck In A Moment-U2
Well, that was till I became an autism blogger Bono. That's okay. You didn't know that. You were too busy being a rock star and saving the world and all. Can we switch jobs for a week? We really have so much in common. We're both Irish. We both like wearing sunglasses. We both work with someone who's name starts with a definite article. (The Edge. The Kiddo.) My paycheck is slightly less but whatever. It's like we're twins!
If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm trying to figure out who I am. Also, who I have become. With a sprinkling of what am I going to do next.
You see, I was prepared to be my husband's wife. I was as ready as any first time mom could be for The Kiddo. I was not at all ready to be "Mama Fry". I'm not even sure who first coined that term. Unlike Bono, I didn't pick that name. It just showed up and like any good nickname, it stuck.
I certainly wasn't ready for the questions that came after I started writing. I get a little uncomfortable with that. I'm no expert. Not even in The Kiddo. Hell, he surprises me all the flipping time. He ate calamari over the weekend. I don't even eat that! I guess I"m up next for feeding therapy. That's cool. I love my son's therapist. We'll go out for beers for my session. I'm sure she'll be cool with it. If you all saw the screeching banshee mess that I am most days in my house, I'm not so sure you'd be following me.
So what' s next? I've done podcasting, YouTubing, guest posting elsewhere. blogging and by golly, I even made a t shirt. So now what? I do know I have make it happen on my own. Despite my stalk tweeting Oprah, I doubt she's going to hand me a TV deal. (But don't let that stop you if you were O.)
Time for more writing. Right after I make the next side of fries.
