Off The Grid
Your comments from Wednesday's post were priceless, guys! As much as I love writing, my favorite part of blogging has always been hearing what you have to say. Hoop and I discuss your lives over dinner and drives and most definitely NOT during sex. That would just be creepy. But every time else! I'll pop my head out from the computer room and shout, "Do you know what Cynical Jay just said?" or "Oh no! Knight lost her job too." And he'll know, he'll know exactly who I'm talking about. I'll lean over breakfast and casually tell him, "So Mamatulip was talking about porn and..." He doesn't even bat an eye.
"Mike, the guy with the awesome bike," or "Allison, my friend who's the whiz at Photoshop," are all permanent titles. Hoop knows you. I don't need to give some characterizing detail. But I do anyway. They're household names. Your blogs are like houses on our street. I thank you for that, for always being there when I need you, no matter how crazy your own lives are. Hoop and I are leaving for Tennessee until Wednesday. I hate leaving the blogosphere, even for five days. But I know this thing doesn't run for me alone. So take care of each other. Tuesday's WWC post will be automated. But don't let that keep you from submitting!
I'll be back soon.
