It all started after I got home from shaking my fat at the gym and I decided to take a quick look at blogger's stat page.
As always, my gaze drifted down to the search terms that brought people to my blog. I enjoy looking through these, because every once in a while I see something that sparks a story idea or characterization component.
Today, there was the usual: Description of a Forest, Emotion Thesaurus, my name...and then I found this:
breezes of bile chicken poop and urine passed by me janice
*blinks* Says what?
I read it again, wondering if maybe I should have eaten breakfast before going to the gym, but no, it remains the same.
Imagine me (ME!) sitting in shocked silence. I do a mental scroll of posts. Breezes of Bile? Bird Poop? Urine passing me by? Nope, pretty sure I didn't post these things. And why in the name of Zombies is someone looking for this word string in google?
I have no answers, people. It might very well remain one of Life's Little Mysteries.
So, rather than walk about in a stupor for the rest of the day wondering how this search string led to The Bookshelf Muse, I choose to embrace and celebrate it! Because let's face it, they were looking for bile breezes and bird poop, and instead they found this place and have become one of our valued Muser Visitors, the bestest folks in the world!
And how do we usually celebrate here at The Bookshelf Muse?
