I want to take a moment and thank all of you who left such kind comments about the story on my father. Regular commenters know that I value your contributions and to that end, always try to acknowledge almost every single comment. I found and still find for that matter, myself totally incapable of responding to any of your heartfelt reactions. Odd I know but the fact that your comments were/are so impactful is the very reason that I find that no response is my best response.
My promise to you is that after I recover from this unexpectedly long post-father story refractory period; my next story will be as multi-topical, unfocused, superficial, sophomoric, unedited and hastily written as you’ve come to know. And finally, I’m sorry that I made some of you cry. You think you let the waterworks flow; I’m still wiping snot off of my keyboard.
Onward. Refractorily. Living for my upcoming LFG weekend.
