You just won the blog championship! What will you do next?

For an upcoming milestone birthday I will be going with my wife to Disney World. I am telling you because it could come up in discussion on my blog.

Like, for instance, now.

I have ascertained in my life that the statement "I am going to Disney World" elicits one of two basic responses from all the people I know.

"How exciting! I am jealous. Take me with you!"



To the first I say "I know! Right?"

To the second I can only sputter out words like "Robots!" "Magic!" "Pirates!" "Pooh!" and "Glowy!" before I realize I am not making myself clear. I would really have to turn this into a Disney World Blog to answer the question "Why?" A question that I suspect is more than a tad rhetorical anyway.

The fact of the matter is that explaining the greatness and appeal of Disney World/Disneyland is a lot like trying to argue for the virtuosity of Bob Dylan's singing voice, a steeply uphill battle with those not already convinced. Actually, it might not even be a hill, it might be better described as a cliff.

Indeed, I'm pretty sure making a case for Disney to the distinctly unconvinced is entirely hopeless. So, in the next couple of weeks to come I'll probably be giving it a whirl.

What's the point of having a beautiful lance like this blog if I don't go tilting after a few windmills with it?

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
