An Event Worthy of a Rocky Road Ice Cream Experience … Definitely Two Scoops

5 Aug

Finding $10,000? Definitely a lot.

10,000 kids running around at Legoland. Definitely too much.

Reaching 10,000 miles on your air bonus miles credit card. Rewarding.

Eating a meal worth 10,000 calories. Yum. Savoring every bite.

Michael Phelps swimming the equivalent to 10,000 meters during his Olympic career. Awesome moment.

The Wish Factor reaching 10,000 views. 10,000 visitors. People have actually stopped by 10,000 times, just to check out my adventures. Dude. The Guat smiles.

I knew it was coming … eventually. I knew that you were out there visitor 10,000 and 10,001. But I don’t even know your name. It happened late at night and I was probably watching the Olympics. I was probably cheering on Michael Phelps, the volleyball chicks, or the gymnastic squad. I was probably changing diapers. I was probably writing a post. I was probably drinking some Framboise. I logged on, and there it was … your footprint in Guat’s blogging history. You showed up like Cinderella to the party and left without leaving me your name. I don’t even know who you were … visitor 10,000 and 10,001. But I’m glad you came.

The Stats

You’re probably a good person, who likes chocolate. You like to laugh, sometimes so much that the side of your stomach hurts. You never thought you’d be a 10,000 anything. If I had a store and you walked in, balloons and streamers would probably come down and you’d win a prize. There you were appearing on my stats at 11:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. But maybe you weren’t even in my time zone. But if I knew who you were and where you were I’d probably give you the prize to my McDonald’s Happy Meal. Everyone knows about Happy Meals. Although I don’t eat McDonald’s anymore, I’d make a special stop just for you.

I know that some of these popular blogs and twitter people probably get that stat every week. Sheesh every day. No big deal for you. Just a regular Wednesday or something. But for the little Guat humor blogger who writes in the wee hours of the night it’s something of an accomplishment. It requires a rocky road ice cream experience. Definitely two scoops.
