twitterpated 10,000 times … please don’t tell my wife!

Unless you have seen the Disney classic ‘Bambi’, you might not be familiar with the term ‘twitterpated’ made famous by the rabbit Thumper. Wiktionary classifies twitterpated as an adjective meaning smitten or lovestruck.  Before letting your imagination run wild with the headline of this post and the definition above (actually I have been happily married to the woman of my dreams for over 30 years), please read the entire post …

But I like the etymology of the word even better … once again from Wiktionary … twitter + pated , i.e., having ones pate (head) in a twitter (confused).  My wife would probably like that definition for describing my infatuation with twitter …

Anyway … on Tuesday, according to twitter, my 10,000th tweet hit the Internet … hey, if you are on twitter, stop by @bwebbjr and check out the tweets … if they interest you, maybe I’ll see you when I hit 20,000.

And I’m serious … please don’t tell my wife.



About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
