Our cast of characters
The most common question people ask me at clerkmanifesto is "What's the most common question that people ask you at clerkmanifesto?"
But the second most common question people ask me at clerkmanifesto is "How's your blog?"
"Oh. That's odd." You reply. "I would have thought the second most common question people asked you at clerkmanifesto was "What's the second most common question people ask you at clerkmanifesto?".

No. You were just great, see, because everyone was relieved that the joke was all over, and then you came up and reminded everyone of what everyone was thinking and wasn't going to say, and so it was funny and nice and everyone liked you a lot.
"They liked me?"
I mean, who wouldn't?
"So, how's your blog?"
It's exactly the same as how you are at every moment.
