I'm a blogging ninja...

As I write this, dear reader(s), I’m doing my best to go undetected. I’m trying to channel my inner ninja, fade into the background, avoid quick movements and eye contact, and stay as noiseless as a goldfish.  

I’m on public transportation, sitting diagonally across from a business contact (on the T that means we are actually facing each other). In the back of my mind I can’t help but picture my colleagues… if they were in my shoes they would strike up some kind of quasi-meaningful conversation… the Sox… the weather… nuclear proliferation… the impending demise of the printed word… But I can’t do it today.   

I know I’m a PR pro, but sometimes I just don’t have it in me to “relate” to the “public.” I’m getting over food poisoning, I’m exhausted, not interested in making small talk, I’ve had a long day at work – gimme a break!  

So I’m sitting here, staring down at my BlackBerry, typing this blog post so I don’t have to raise my eyes and risk opening a line of communication (verbal or otherwise) with said contact. Thank you, dear reader(s), for allowing me to hide out, for enabling my attempted hermit behavior and giving me a reason to look too busy to be interrupted.  

I owe you one!
