We interrupt our normally scheduled blog posts to bring you this nonsense:

Greetings. My name is Serta Pillow-top Mattress. You can call me Serta for short. I am a really close finerd of Carolyn. I see her every day and night unless she goes out of town. Shucks, I guess I am her best finerd although she bought me only about 9 months ago. Wait, do you buy your finerds?? She is very compassionate. She naturally connects with people and establishes meaningful relationships.I came into the picture because she needed rest. She had lost her best finerd and baby sister to cancer and did not know how to grieve. She was working 65 hours a week two days after her sister’s burial while taking three graduate level courses. These 65 hours was spent working with children who were severely emotionally disturbed. She pushed herself because she didn’t want to think as a result she hit a wall-burnout. She decided to take a year off from work and school and just spend some quality time with me, lounging around, reading, watching TV and eating bon bons. The problem was she never seemed to rest. She would lie down but her mind continued to race over various thoughts.Anyways, when she has her mind set on doing something she completes the task unless it involves resting. The quality time “thingy” lasted for about five months. She decided she was bored and falling behind on her Career Path.Carolyn has an associate degree as well as a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Human Services. She is currently pursuing a M. Ed, Counseling as well as a Health Care Reimbursement certificate. She is in her second year of graduate school. She needs four classes to complete her Health Care Reimbursement certification. She also volunteers at a program that provides groups and counseling for youth substance abusers. This is in preparation for her CDC II certification.She was an active duty soldier; she is now a disable wartime veteran who serves her country for over 9 years. She deployed to several countries. Amazingly, she is the mother of eight, 5 biological children and 3 stepchildren. Two of her biological children and two of her stepchildren still resides at home. If you ask me, she need to sleep for a week-teenagers!She is back in school and she is happy and excited. Now, she rest and sleep more. I see her a lot earlier than usual. She tells me she has to get her rest so she can stay on task. She plans to be a coder and own her own private practice in the counseling arena. She is very smart and is going to do just fine. Whenever she feels like she needs a break or to shut down for a while, I will be right there in her favorite room waiting. That is what best finerds do.

If you made it through all that, kudos to you. I had a tl;dr moment there myself, friends. I’m not sure if other wordpress users are seeing an increased number of post comments bypassing the spam filter, but the last few days I’ve seen many more than usual. (I think because they’re creating facebook profiles and using them as URLs.)

For the ones that actually related the post in question, I will allow it, but this one takes the cake. If you had the same tl;dr moment in reading it, here’s the synopsis. The comment, written in response to one of my travel posts and completely unrelated to its content, was told from the perspective of a mattress who befriends a pregnant lady. Yeah.
