Long, rambling rants are not my thing. I'm more into pithy comments, which was how I came to have my own blog. I was just wanting to spray a little wit (as out of a small pump bottle, such as those used to clean eyeglasses) onto my son's blog (hard to compete with a funny writer with better material, so pithy comments are the way to go in such situations), and found myself signing up for my own blog. Now I feel a lot of pressure to make it worth the server space. Will I have enough brain squeezings to fill a blog? What's the column inch minimum? I still have a little deadline angst left from my very short stint as a reporter (hard to keep up appearances as a competent reporter when one has a debilitating fear of the telephone). If this complicates my life enough to cause hair loss, can I legally quit, or do I need a note from my doctor? These questions are still unanswered, but yet I bravely type on. Stay tuned. Or not.
(Hey, you know that "blog" is a misspelling in the spell check?)
