Behind Their Backs.

A couple of years ago
something funny kept happening to me.

All the time,
people would say,
"I heard you have
a great blog,"
or,
"Someone was saying 
nice things about you."

And I'd say,
"Who?"

And they'd say,
"Oh, I don't remember."

Like, often.

Someone was spreading
nice rumors about me,
and I never figured out who it was.

I could tell you about other times
when someone told me
something unbelievably nice
that someone else had said about me.

Every time I was thrilled
and speechless
and couldn't quite believe it.
That person really
said that about me?

I can only imagine
that this happens all the time,
not just to me.

It makes me want to say
nice things about people
behind their backs.
And to their faces.

  1. I read this, looked at Heidi, and said, "I like it!" Does that count as something nice said behind your back? :)
