Sick as a Dog

I’ve been sick the last couple of days. It’s a strange thing. I had a flu shot in October, so how could I get the flu? It’s probably not the flu. Whatever it is, it’s centered in my throat and there’s been a whole lotta coughing goin’ on.

Maybe it’s my karmic retribution for slandering Kris Kristofferson on Monday. Except that I don’t really think I said anything that bad. But, here’s the deal: this blog can go for weeks without a single comment . . .  I make one offhanded remark about Kris Kristofferson and I get several. I approved the only one fit to print. Another called my blog silly. That was cruel.

I don’t get it. I know there are other bloggers out there far more profound, insightful, whatever, but I am trying to provide readers, whoever they may be, with something meaningful as best I can, and unlike some other blogs who will remain nameless, there is more here than just some quotes every single day, and it’s not a constant long-winded bitch fest, nor a celebration of the inner high school dweeb obsessed with the F-word and squirrels. I can think of any number of things I’ve written here far more worthy of a few comments than my observation that Kris Kristofferson seemed a little loopy at the Grammys.

All I can say is that

Life is strange.

People are strange.

Love is strange. Lot of people (mmm-mmm-mmmm), take it for a game.

Everything is strange.

I’m off to bed.

    Well, I think you do just that. However, after reading most of your posts, I haven’t much to say! They are generally speaking mostly informative in nature. I learn much from your posts, but they cover the material that you present quite well, and I’m not sure that they always foster discussion. Controversial topics will always get more comments, simply because at that point people have their opinions and love to share them. After reading many of your posts, I don’t really have an opinion on the matter, but instead come away with another tidbit of information.
