How I write

In the back room here, on the computer work table used by the person working on the giant automated check in machine, there is, curiously, a little bin that fills with things like toys and playing cards and bookmarks. Currently, for some reason, there is also a ping pong ball in that bin. Every once in awhile I like to take the ping pong ball out and hold it. It's satisfying. And I walk up to one of my co-workers, hold up the ping pong ball, and I say "Do you want to play a quick game? We just need a table, a net, and two paddles."

My co-workers, as far as I can tell, are mildly amused by this because it is a joke. 

On the other hand, these are the same principals, more or less, by which I write the great majority of these blog posts.

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.
