I started doing this blog thing about two months ago. Early on, I subscribed my daughter Bess to it without her knowledge or permission although afterwards she said she did not mind. Since then she will say in front of my wife that she saw the blog and the “neat” picture of penelope for that day(Bess is the one in the Mustang a few weeks back). It is as if she and I now have an inside joke together or that we are communicating and leaving my wife out of it. It has been fun. I check it several times a day to see if the numbers of hits have increased and also how what I created looks for that particular day. I enjoy finding interesting things to put on there with some tie in to the prostate cancer journey. I have learned from it and I think I am a better informed urologist because of it. I definitely have a better feel for the “patient side” of this prostate journey is. (People are more candid on the internet, as if they can be honest and not be seen. Invisible but revealing to the reader.)
So the other day Bess hands me the cartoon above with a smirk and says,”I found something that made me think of you, something you might enjoy.” What is going on in the cartoon?
Well…….Jon has recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is writing about it on a blog…and Garflied is sarcastically making the point that no one cares and that what Jon is writing is boring. The truth does hurt.
What do you think. Jon is a dull optimist? He’s commenting about prostate cancer screening and awareness and no one is listening?
