As long time followers know, it’s been a long damn time since I’ve written anything on this blog. My excuses are many, and none of them are worth the precious time required to discuss. The important thing is that I am back.
Did you miss me (Did you even know I was gone)? I apologize. It’s like I’m one of those Dads who goes out for a pack of smokes and doesn’t turn up until 19 years later when Mom wins the lottery or junior is a first round draft pick.
Back when I was blogging like a fiend, I was a self-admitted whore for likes and followers. As the numbers plateaued and the same three people liked what I wrote, the buzz was wearing off. Now I’m back, and to be fair, it is partly because of my metaphoric lottery win. No millions in cash to leech onto, no kid in the big leagues, just you, my handful of patient readers.
When you’re done watching everything you can on Netflix*, the news makes you break out in hives, and you need a moment to get away from your quarantine mates – you’ll come to me, and welcome me back into your worlds without so much as a peep about why a pack of Marlboro Lights took me so long to find.
As for my personal quarantine, I’ll say this and this only: My people are safe and healthy, my food supplies are sufficient and I have more than enough home brewed beer to last me.
I just wanted to say hello, and to let you know that I’ll be turning out some fiction in the weeks/months to come. My penchant for poking fun at the insanity of our times has officially become easier than falling off a log as well as painfully depressing, so I’m leaving that to others.
I hope you are all well, and look forward to writing something more.
