I have some very, very sad news. It was a hard week for me, once I came to this realization. Because I found out something important about myself…
I had already had given up my dreams of being a princess (no pedigree) or a ballerina (not so gifted with the gracefulness). I also accepted that I was not going to be a scientist (let’s just say math and I are not on the same wavelength) nor a truck driver (Yes, I wanted to be one! But I think you have to have some sort of spacial awareness for that, yeah?). But darn it, now I’m not going to be a super secret spy, either!
Before I was born, my dad was in the CIA. So I always just imagined that should I ever have the inclination, I would be a natural, right? Because surely I inherited the genes. But I didn’t! In reality, it turns out I would be more of a Maxwell Smart-type (old people like me will get that reference) and I’m just so dejected.
My first inkling of my less than sneaky skills was when I ‘friended’ my brother and his wife on my Kinley Dane Facebook page. Seems innocuous, but it took me a few days to realize that if friends and family on my personal Facebook were to see that my brother ‘liked’ or commented on something on my Kinley Dane Facebook, they would know about Kinley Dane and my super secret alter ego would be exposed!
So I regrouped my spy skills and banned my brother from liking and commenting. When I posted a picture of myself on my Kinley Dane Facebook, I think my text to him was, ‘Whatever you do, for the love of God, DON’T LIKE OR COMMENT ON MY FACEBOOK POST!’
But then I found myself commenting on my brother’s posts in one persona and then continuing the conversation in the OTHER persona. Multiple times. And I couldn’t blame him for that, much to my disappointment.
The final straw came when I posted the same video on both of my Facebook pages. I took this silly video of my pets in my bed (if you want to watch it, go here) and tried to post it directly to my personal Facebook from my phone. After a while, when it still hadn’t appeared, I tried to post it again. And, oddly enough, it still didn’t work, so I decided to try another way and posted it to Facebook from You Tube on my computer. That time it showed up, so all was well. Until I logged onto my Kinley Dane Facebook page and saw the darn video posted twice there!
So that was it, slapped rudely in the face by my own ineptitude. But there’s good news on the horizon! There’s still one more childhood dream job I haven’t explored, yet.
I’m going to be a lion rescuer! Or an orphaned monkey caregiver. OR a goat keeper. Yeah, that is definitely one I still want to be. I mean, what could go wrong, right?
