Happy Blogoversary, Oh Fuse of the Number Eight!
I said, "Psst!"
And I said "zzzzzzzzz". Go away.
Don’t you know what day it is?
(cracks one bleary eye open)
It’s Thursday. Thursday is a day when I can sometimes sleep in because I’m working the evening shift at the library. As that seems to be the case I am currently attempting to sleep. So if you’ll excuse me . . .
Wait! It’s more than just Thursday! Don’t you remember?
(uh-oh) Uh… what is it? Some Canadian Thanksgiving or something? The day after Ash Wednesday?
No? Hm. It’s . . . . oh.
IT’S MY FREAKIN’ BIRTHDAY AND YOU TOTALLY FORGOT ALL ABOUT IT . . .
Technically it’s the blog’s anniversary . . .
. . . AND HERE I AM SLAVING AWAY FOR YOU EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY AND WHAT DO YOU CARE?
EXACTLY. (muffles sobs)
Aw. Now see here, little buddy. I didn’t forget. It just slipped my mind a little. Let’s see, how old is the blog again?
And what is the two year anniversary?
It’s cotton! So look what I got you!
Is that one of your husband’s undershirts that was just sitting on the bed?
A COTTON undershirt, sweetie pie. Let’s just see how it fits . . .
. . . . . . . . .
Perfect! Happy anniversary, little Fuseman. And a happy blogoversary to all you readers out there. It’s been quite a strange trip these last few years, but I couldn’t be happier. And that goes double for the Fuseman here.
. . . . . . . . .
Till next year!
(Thanks too to Carter Hasegawa who was good enough to remind me about this before Fuseman did.)
