We all have a tendency to be unrealistic right? I think blogging is silly or any writing for that matter. To Pretend is an attempt to create a false appearance or make belief. They are words written that are made up in our head. So imagined, we can create something real.
Is it good to pretend? Like, Peter Pan? What if it leads to reality? Can we claim to have a million dollars? Please? Can I pretend to have all I need or want? Let’s imagine it for a moment…
I have an excellent blog that people tend to follow. Thousands of followers love to read what I have to say, sometimes humorous, useful things. Sometimes priceless, meaningful parody’s and anecdotes. Would people like that? I have a blog. My blog is practically famous, and I get invited to places and events all over the world. Such as blogger fest, and Blog-Her but more important venues lol. Travelling is a past time I enjoy a lot. I get to visit many new and beautiful cities and meet people from all over. So yes, I travel a lot. I pick up the latest trends in fashion, and my closet is full of shoes and accessories. I own a big house in Santa Monica near the beach because I make a lot of money from my blog. I have grown my business, and my brand is popular on the Internet. I’ve become an internet sensation because of my articles. I write about topics of interest, and everyone wants me to do feature articles for them and of course I get paid.
Web sites pay me a lot to write anything you can imagine. My company name is FiGoro. Let us pretend I also can draw. I studied graphic design. Let us assume I even own my graphic design company. We are known to make websites look good by providing their visual material for them. #1 in the field. Grammarly has hired us to make illustrations come to life. Ok, I think you get the idea I hope. Pretending all I can claim to make belief for today. Imagine it is for real.
I don’t exactly know what the root word for pretend is. What I see is pre- tend. Not as in ‘tending my laundry.’ But “to profess, assert, maintain.” I like to assert myself in extreme situations. It gives me pleasure.
Let’s make believe I have a yard. I hired a gardener because even though I like gardening, it requires a lot of care to which employees take care of, because, you know, I don’t always have the time. I am a busy person who makes a lot of money and my time is valuable on growing my company. Ok. I fancy my garden, though. It looks beautiful. Strewn all over with colorful flowers, begonias, and plants. I like to pretend I have a money tree, but it is a banyan tree, an Indian fig tree. The figs are used in certain beauty products because it is good for the skin giving it a youthful appearance. We all like to look as young as we feel (forever 21) and prevent our skin from sagging and wrinkles. I also have hydrating sheet masks that help your skin produce collagen and elasticity. I make a lot in sales from them. People love them, not just women. So you see my garden is virtually a money garden. I rely on it for my business. My products are all organic and vegan. No animal testing on any of my products. I need to ship some of the ingredients to our factory today. We harvested a bunch of figs from our garden this year. It kept me very busy. I am blessed to own a company like FiGoro.
F is for finesse, an enviable trait.
I is for interest; you show in others.
G is for Goal, your eye on the future.
O is for old fashioned, and you cherish the past.
R is for the realist, the way you are.
O is for openness; it’s refreshing!
Not pretending, I stole the anagram from here; it’s not a familiar name. But let’s pretend my business company FiGoro is.
Have a nice day everyone!
