Potato Salad

I tend to make what I call a tacky potato salad. That means I put in one ingredient too many. Before I added the whatever ingredient, my potato salad would have the right balance of flavor and presentation. And then, bam! In goes that "let me try this" ingredient and now the salad tastes and looks a bit strange. In other words, my potato salad becomes one that you'd like because you acquired the taste to eat it. Visual reference. Think of adding a clown collar to your job interview outfit.

My tacky potato salad is my metaphor for when I overdo things. I may have made a potato salad out of my blog design today when I added a signature to my post below. Or not. Doesn't matter really if it does. I enjoy eating my tacky potato salad. Most times.

By the way, fellow Blogathoner Tracy Doerr is featuring an interview series of the Word Count Blogathon participants at her blog Tracy Doerr 3.0.  My interview was posted yesterday. If you're interested in reading it, please click here. Thanks, Tracy!


  1. This post is a perfect example of why I like blogging. Bloggers can write about the most mundane things--potato salad--and make it sound interesting or funny. And, on top of that, we can learn something new, like how to add a personal signature to our blog posts. I like it, by the way.

  2. It is not overkill. It looks cool.

  3. I like your sig! And your potato salad is probably a lot better than most of that boring stuff out there.

  4. Thank you, all, for the vote of confidence. :-)
