This sort of happened to me today. A photo I posted on my blog years ago just reared it's head:
My sister-in-law texted me with the new meme (see below) of me saying how much it looked like me.
But it was me.
My husband, always knowing me to be "a witch" found it flattering, but I'm floored. 23,000+ shares on a Facebook page called The Old Crones Corner with more than 67,000 followers. What stunned me was everyone on that page asking permission to share the meme.
Permission happily granted. Nobody asked my permission if it was ok to splash me all over the internet. They changed the background, too.
It actually looks better...
I have to say this is one of my favorite photos, the look on my face is not wicked intent, but love shining towards my son who was cracking me up during the photo shoot.
It was an important lesson that struck home. Literally. The internet is permanent ink.
Well, the moon is indeed full and at least I'm not naked or in an embarrassing manner. Everyone got a kick out of it and I'm just curious where it came from...
Update: I spoke with "the old crone" who was a wonderful person and we chatted all morning, of course I told her not to take the photo down and she found me by random chance in a Google search for "witch".
There you have it, blasted with calls and texts from around the country, I'm now a pretty famous one.
