Why my wife ought to blog

We were discussing my illustrious friend Phil Johnson, curator of the Spurgeon Archive.

"Is that a real thing -- or an internet thing," she asks. "Because anybody could call himself a curator on-line. Who checks?"

So I explained that it is both a "real thing" and an "internet thing", and besides that Phil was also a trustee of The Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recordings Trust in England.

Blank stare.

And then she just said, "it's hard to meet Phil in that hat and shirt he wore to the bookstore that time and believe he's the curator of anything which doesn't take quarters or tokens."

Clearly, her blog would be funnier than mine.
