I am Not a Very Good Trend Spotter

Case in point:

Circa 1997.  Mr. Mint and I have been dating for a couple of months.  We both work at the same investment bank in San Francisco.  Mr. Mint has been working on a pitch book all week for a new company looking for investors.  He shows it to me and asks what I think.  I tell him I think it sounds like a stupid idea, and I wouldn't invest in it.  It's just a giant on-line flea market.  That was a little company called E-Bay.  

Flash forward several years and the buzz is all about something called a blog.   I ask Mr. Mint what the heck a blog is all about.  He shows me and explains what people use them for.  At the time I had toddler twins and a newborn baby.   I said it sounds like a good idea, but who has time to keep up with something like that.  

Apparently me.  Mr. Mint has a facebook page.  I guess it's only a matter of time before I follow my husband down that road.   But not anytime soon.

I was shocked a what ebay became. I seriously thought it sounded like the dumbest idea ever. I guess that's why Mr. Mint still works at the investment bank and I don't.
