Cyber Nup

I am married to a man who has a blog, but is not on twitter. Out of kindness, and because I think he’s interesting, I sometimes tweet his blog posts. But what if he were on twitter, and I didn’t feel inclined to RT his tweets? I think some sort of guidelines need to be written for this. Maybe there should be an addendum to the Pre-Nup,  a Cyber Nup. That way, everything would be up front before you get too “involved.”  I mean, failure to RT should not be grounds for divorce, but you never know.

(My husband, by the way, is New Yorker cartoonist Michael Maslin. And while you cannot follow him on twitter yet, you can visit his blog, Ink Spill.  It’s really quite good, and all about New Yorker cartoons past and present)

    Wow, The New Yorker really missed out on this one–FABULOUS!

    I cannot comment on retweeting, having never tweeted myself. (Sounds kinky!)
    Hence, no repartee today. (Does one have to “partee” first?) I am confident,
    however, that your marriage will survive.

    I’m assuming the gentleman on the sofa, with the laptop, represents Mr. Maslin.
    Was he not pictured in your New Year’s Eve cartoon, likewise reclining on the
    sofa, at midnight, with his laptop? When does he do his cartooning?
