Here are some real life situations involving pinning on Pinterest
- Making Dinner
Loved One – “Where’s my tea?”
Me – “On a pin board. I pinned some images earlier. Do you want me to cook it as well?”
2. House work
Loved One – “Can you finish the ironing?”
Me – go upstairs, start ironing, have a break after five minutes and start to pin images about disliking housework.
3. Time Management
Me – “I need to be more organised and stop wasting time on silly things”.
Go upstairs, lie on bed and spend hours pinning stuff about time-wasting and time management. Don’t get a chance to read them because I am too busy doing all the stuff I should have been doing whilst I was pinning. Sigh!
Me – “I think my beloved black male cat is deaf and blind as he acts like I don’t exist when he walks into a room”.
Sit on chair and tearfully pin images of healthy black cats.
5. Bad Day
Me – “I have had a bad day!”
Nip upstairs to pin pretty and expensive sparkly stuff until mood improves.
Me – “I think I want to kill off my dull character but I don’t know how to do it?”
Reach for Pinterest and spend hours pinning stuff about different ways a writer can kill one of their characters.
Once finished pinning decide that the character can live another day.
7. Fictional Crushes
Me – “I am going through a phase in my life where I find Elvish men attractive”
Stop washing up. Go lie on sofa and pin random pics of hot Elvish men.
Loved One – “What are you doing?”
Me – “Pinning”
Me “I think I am going to quit writing”
Reach for Pinterest app and start to pin images about not quitting and how quitting is for losers.
Me “OMG someone has turned all my favourite one liners into pop art”
Start filling up board with random pop art images of faces saying “OMG” and “I just want to be a mermaid”
