A little IIPM at home ?!?
"It's my birthday today ?"
My toddler has been asking this question as soon as she opens her eyes in the morning for three straight weeks..
We knew all along that this year when the second one is born, we will not be able to have a birthday celebration for her the week of her birthday.
But how can you disappoint someone this cute ?
So decided to have an early birthday.. All our friends and relatives understood and showed up for this early fake birthday party.. it was as real as it gets !!
Unfortunately, I will not be able to post any more photos of this birthday!! Apparently the wife and mother in law have "rights" (under what section , law, constitution, etc.. etc.. I do not know!) .. Lets just say they have the "right" not to have their photograph displayed in my blog.
I tried to argue that their photos are already in my blogs (see the flying monkeys post to see Mother in law) and any random post to see my wifes photo!!
I lost this one to the local censor board !! Fundamentally they have threatened me with stuff (pressure tactics) just like the ones mentioned in the IIPM related blogs.
I cannot resign my position as husband and son in law because my "freedom of speech" is dear to me !!
Based on this episode, I suggest we coin a phrase "IIPMed" !!
IIPMed : Attempting pressure tactics to get things done your way, especially with respect to making people remove posts, photographs, articles from media.
I was IIPMed today !!
