Duh. It’s My Website.

When people read piperism, they usually ask me two questions:

1. Does Piper know you’re doing this?

2. Does Sissy wish she had her own blog, too?

Yes, Piper knows all about the blog.  When she does something that makes us all spew our drinks at dinner, she says, “You’re going to blog about this, right?” I usually do.  Tonight at dinner her Sissy prompted her to explain what piperism actually is. Piper rolled her eyes. “Duh. It’s my website.”

No, Sissy doesn’t want her own blog. She’s at that age where blasting her funnies into the universe would be devastating. Preteen privacy is to be respected. Sissy enjoys being a part of the blog, though, but she gives me a thumbs up or a thumbs down on ideas.  She enjoys writing the occasional blog post herself, but since she writes better than me, we had to put a quick end to her contribution. I’m only half kidding.

Last weekend we passed the 20,000 hits mark, so I thought it might be time for a retrospective. Here are the top rated piperisms based on number of views since we began. Hope you enjoy the ride. Feel free to vote for your own in the comments.  I love to hear what laugh made your day a bit lighter.

We’ve been busy here at piperism.  I started this blog at the beginning of 2012 on a double dog dare.  Why not record some of Piper’s antics and adventures? Why not share her unintentional wisdom? We found that we were telling our favorite piperisms to each other anyway.  “Wait until I tell you what Piper said.” “Oh. I’ve got a good one.  Listen to this piperism.”  The material seemed endless.

So, I began without knowing the end. It’s been a leap of faith for this Virgo who loves a list and plans life much in advance. It’s been a surprise to have so many readers and share so many laughs.  I’m grateful you stop by.  I hope you stay with us.  Piper and I are traveling this week.  Just the two of us. I’m putting us both on a technology diet, so piperism might be quiet for a few days. We’ll be back, though, new and improved with fresh stories to tell.  See you then.

And to tide you over during our hiatus, here are the top ten piperisms of 2012:

Hold On. We’re Going Gaga
