Editor's Note: January 2008
Author: Maggie Washo
Do you know how difficult it is to sit here every month and come up with something truly profound to share with 60,000 readers? I mean honestly! Who do you think I am? Ghandi? Aristotle? Socrates? Mmmm, yeah, no.
I suppose I could tell you about all of my New Year’s Resolutions. But I did that last year. Ha! Besides, I’m not making any, so that didn’t take long, did it?
I’ve long since abandoned the stereotypical way most editors start out an issue… “See our Spring Fashion Spread on page “blah.” Don’t forget to read our Top Ten Tips for Driving your Husband Crazy on page “blah.” As I see it, you are going to flip it open and read what you want to read. You’ve already seen the cover lines and the Table of Contents. Far be it from me to tell you the best way to drive your husband crazy. I don’t even have one, so how would I know?
Quite frankly, this whole Editor’s Note is A LOT of pressure every month. What if I say something you don’t like? Are you going to tell me about it next time I see you in line at Publix? Then I’ll have to apologize for my opinions and offending you and feel obligated to buy you a bottle of wine to help you get over it.
So perhaps the best thing to do is just do away with this Editor’s Note thing altogether. Then I won’t have to worry about writing it, and you won’t be offended. So next month, look for a full page ad where my Editor’s Note should be.
Just Kidding! Happy New Year from all of us at CH2!
