I Will Be Away All Next Week
|"Okay, so I didn't get anything posted yesterday. I'm sorry, Blog, for not feeding you."
"Yeah, I know. If I failed to feed my dogs each morning, they would hate me for it."
"Okay, Blog, I will do better next time. You can go a longer time without sustenance than the dogs can without food."
"Yeah, I know. Without routine attention, you could shrivel up and die like you did a couple of years ago. And once deserted, our friends, our readers, will be hard, if not impossible, to bring back."
"Why? Because you, Blog, when you become a discourse, a bond of friendship is formed. To ignore friends is to say 'I don't want to be friends anymore'." Such was never the intent, but it becomes the effect."
"Yeah, I know. I should have contacted them and told them 'Nothing personal, but my life has turned into basket rapidly spirited down a lava stream to Hell and I have to leave the Internet scene, or at least back it down to just the essentials for awhile."
"Well, in all fairness, I didn't know that I was going to back it down until I was actually doing it. It was an outside daily pressure, plus an unkept promise to return. I just drifted away."
"No, I hope I don't abandon you like I did before. If I do sense things going crazy, I will try to tell you and our friends who read you."
"Catch ya later, Blog! I am about to jump into some fun and excitement with today's prompt on
Everybody is gonna be there!"
"No, you can't come, but I will tell ya all about it when I come back. I will even bring you back a balloon or two!"
"Okay, I will catch you later. I hope all my readers are not upset because I spent my time talking to you instead of sharing with them."
"Yeah, I know you are as important as they are. You make this link with them possible."
"Yeah, I know. Those slider thingies and the note board thing are cutting into your territory of WDC social contact. But, listen, Blog, they are not half as good as you. Mr. Board is smaller and Sliders can't really talk back. However, they could introduce new friends to you."
"I love you, too! See ya after the fireworks!"
