Another Reason Why People Don't Talk To Me

Just a quick one today. I have a couple of more substantial entries in the pipeline. My wife saw my computer screen last night when I was working on one and said, "Is that for your blog? Wow, it's a long one." When I told her I was pretty much just getting started, she replied that she may skip this one. It's tough to accept an instant 78% decline from my usual readership, but I'll soldier on.

Today's offering is cut-and-pasted from an e-mail exchange I just had with a friend. His new e-mail address has been redacted because I don't want the same fate to befall it as his old one. For the less e-mail innoculated, the part with > in front of it is him, the part without that is my reply to him.

Yeah, I'm sending you most of those. If you only respond to .01% of them, I'm in the black.

You have to admit, though, that $15 a month is a great deal for shocking videos. Normally that kind of thing will run you at least $20. Shop around, you can't beat that price!

Enough rambling. Here's a picture of one of my son's books edging its way off the table. At this point, seeing no other way out, it was contemplating ending it all by hurling itself into the unknown. Thankfully, we were able to talk it down safely.
