Well, I finally did it! I have Twitter account, @chopkins67.
What pushed me over the edge? (Yes I do feel as if Twitter was a cliff I was not ready to jump off, until now.) A book – A Tiger in the Kitchen. It is a novel written by Cheryl Tan and I am not even done with it, but I went to her blog and saw that she also has a Twitter account (@CherylTan88) and I thought – I have to hear what she is saying. I love her style and her book is a great read, so far. So, I jumped.
I set up a Twitter account – @chopkins67. What a name – chopkins. It’s my first initial and last name, of course, and it has been my log on name, well since log on names became necessary. 67 is the year I was born – I like the numbers 6 and 7. They fit. It’s a good year. Some of my favorite people were also born that year and the ’67 Mustang is a sweet lookin’ car! I don’t like that anyone who is quick at math can figure out my age (I was born in December, subtract one until then!) – something I try not to be too sensitive about, but am and I blame my Mom. Sorry Mom, but crying at your 30th birthday was a memory that is so strong, I left the country when you turned 40. I joke… a little. Back to the name – @chopkins67. It isn’t flashy or clever, but it is me!
My first tweet gave me pause, but then I remembered that it was Mother’s Day – so it is a shout out to all my friends who are moms, it is a tough job that we love nearly every minute of and to my Mom, who in spite of my hang up about my age, and a few other quirks she gave me, I love dearly.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Amazing moms out there – including mine. I love you!
I can’t imagine what I will be tweeting, but if you dare, I am @chopkins67.
