The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog

Here is my dilemma. All I have left to live for is 1.) this blog and 2.) my wits. Do I start posting again, or devote my time to honing my wits? No, no, no - wait, I meant nits. I have nits. So, do I start posting again, or devote my time to phoning my nits? Soon my nits will be nymphs, and then full-fledged adult lice – they grow up so fast! I don’t want any louse of mine to wonder where I was all the time, why I never bothered to call, or why I was drunk, or absent, or both, during his soccer matches and birthday beatings. I don’t want to be a shitty host. I want to be a vital part of my nit’s lives. Then again, maybe I want to blog more often. Such decisions are never easy.

Yes, please start posting again. I may not have commented before, but I eagerly leap on every new post here as soon as it appears in Bloglines, and devour it whole like a frenzied, ravenous carnivore. This obviously suggests that I have no life to speak of and don't get out and about nearly enough, but I am not ashamed.

Sadly. I should be. I really should be.

You could possibly give my life some meaning by posting again. And even if you don't, well, er ... no, I can't think of a reason now. Damn. And this comment was going so well, too.

Esther, the nits and I are very much hoping you'll blog again.

Focus on your nymphs, and then as a family you can focus on your blogging.

Do your nits blog? That would have a pleasing circularity, a sense of closure and cohesion. They could blog for you, and you could devote yourself entirely to their care and grooming, raising enormous, silky-haired pedigree nits for exhibition at the Westminster Dog Show. Just think how they will laud you in their electronical journals! And if they get all Mommy Dearest on you, just break out the Licex - problem solved...

Yeah, I think I'd post more often if I were you.

And get haloscan for commenting.

I JUST found you, Esther. I don't know what I'll do if you no longer blog. And anyway, those littles creatures will be hopping off onto someone else before you know it. They'll won't even look back, Esther. Not for the slightest glimpse. Ungrateful things.

If I were you,I'd simply soak in a hot tub and practice becoming more absorbent.

Then you could type new blog entries with permanent, raisin fingers. And how frickin' cool would that be?

It seems obvious to me that you need to set your nits down before the television so that you may take the odd moment to blog

Holy crap, Esther, I had almost given up on ever seeing another post here!

Snap out of it and tend to the nits!
