Six years ago when I was engaged and surfed the net, I got to stare at the banners leading to The Knot and Crate and Barrel. When I got pregnant, the banners advertised Babycenter and Web MD. Once my baby was born, I was enticed to visit Diapers.com. Imagine my surprise when two days ago I spotted several web ads for divorce lawyers.
I am pretty much the only person using my computer. Sure, my son gets to bang on the keys, but that’s when computer is locked. My daughter watches animation on youtube twice a week, but it’s all kids’ stuff. I love my husband, and have not been vising divorce websites and, until this very post, typing the word “divorce” anywhere. So what is about a stay at home mom who visits political and parenting blogs and occasionally shops at Anthropologie.com that alerted the gods of the internet to possibility that she might need services of a divorce attorney?
The only explanation I have is visiting blog entries and news pages about a certain Congressman from New York, entering his name in search engines and writing two posts about him.
