Note: I wrote a humdinger of a blog post – only to forget it at work. The Board of Directors Here at Spo-Reflections is furious. They disallowed me to ‘wait until tomorrow’; I have to ‘put out’ before midnight or face a penalty so terrible they dare not tell me the details but only hinted I won’t be able to count to ten any more. Oy. In a pinch, there is always “Urspo’s wicked words”. Please give an enthusiastic shout out in the comment section, lest I lose digits.
