Pushy In Action

My friend FJ (or Francisco) from Chile, who I have mentioned before when talking up his English language blog ( ) gave me a new nickname a little while ago.


Honestly, I don't know where he comes up with this stuff. LOL. Ok, well actually, maybe I do. We were talking about me getting more followers for this blog (which has jumped from 27 to 30!) and it came up again. This was the second time.

It all started earlier that day. I was sitting at my computer, minding my own business when he tells me out of the blue that he sometimes hates me! Surprised (cause who could possibly hate me at any time - lol), I asked him why?

His answer was that sometimes I indulged in "pushings" as he called it (English is his second language). I thought it was kind of funny originally. I was a telemarketer of credit cards, etc. for 2-1/2 years, after all, so I do know "pushy".

When I asked him how so, I believe the answer was along the lines that I am always pushing him to either write in his blog or read mine! Can't argue there either. Don't see a problem there either. LOL. We agreed I was maybe, a little pushy

Then I told him, as I mentioned earlier, about the new members I was getting in short order. One (#27) a day or two before, and two that very day at about that very moment. That's when he gave me the idea (and title) for this post by saying it was ...

Pushy In Action. LOL.

Seriously, though, I'd like to think of myself as perhaps intense. Or a good promoter. But I did originally think pushy was kind of funny for a nickname. And a little apt.

Till he started using it a official greeting. Constantly. LOL. Now I'm not so sure. Oh, how I long for the day's of being simply CAT. Besides, in fairness to me, my pushiness did help him. I asked #30 to be his follower too. He said yes.

So, I'll leave it to you dear readers. Am I really that pushy? Or just charmingly self-promoting. LOL. You be the judges.
