If it seems like I'm a little vacant, a little missing, a little autoposty, it is because, for all intents and purposes, I am indeed out of pocket for a few days. It distresses me. I like being in your pocket. Okay, there's the lint problem and you really have to stop reaching in here to "adjust" but other than that, it's kind of nice being so close to you.
You wondered why I was posting on Sunday night, didn't you? And why that post seemed a little abrupt and unusually lacking in verbosity. You're all noticey like that.
Yeah, that's 'cause I hit "publish" before I meant to. But once it was out there and available for reading, all I could do was quickly spruce it up. No time for grand elaboration. Because there's no way to recall it once it's in people's readers and there's a part of me that says "Okay, fine, um... I totally meant to do that."* Even though I didn't and that's totally stupid. So, I gave you very little to chew on and you still came through. Who knows, maybe it was a relief for you. By which I mean, thanks!
And please remember, you're terrific! *meets gaze* It's not you, it's me.**
All I ask is that every now and then, you peer into your pocket and notice I'm not there. That's all. I'll be back as soon as I can.
* The same part of me that says "I KNOW YOU ARE, BUT WHAT AM I?"
** That worked for George Costanza, right? No? Oh.
Extraspecialbonusmessagechosenespeciallyforyou: You know how many LOLCATs are out there that I could have included in this post? But I didn't. That's how much I care.
