I'm not really sure if you'd still notice this comment but this doesn't work. Whenever I share the link on Facebook it just shows data:blog.metaDescription. Here's the link:

@Therese Jane
HEY! Actually, I read each and every comment! So don't think about if I will notice it or not!
I try my best to answer every comment personally.

As far as your query is concerned, Meta tags are set up well. There's might be something internal fetching error regarding this post. So I request you to kindly create a new post with same contents and then delete the old one.
It will help.
