When Comments Attack

Sometimes I think I enjoy the give and take of commenting more than the actually torture exercise of writing that is blogging.  I’ve written comments on other people’s blogs that were more like blog posts themselves, and certainly are larger in volume than the sum total of any “novel” I pretend to be writing.  Sometimes, before my multiple cups of caffeinated beverages kicks in, my snarkiness get the better of me…

I’ve also been known to hijack a blog post or two – I’ve even been known to hijack my own blog comments as evidenced by Saturday’s exchange with Dave from 1point perspective.  If you stopped by early in the day, or skipped my post  that day (WHAT?)  about a bakery I had visited on vacation:  Witness:


 … I understand your reluctance to post this given, the horrific event of the Thursday night, but in my view, this post was entirely positive, and of course, liberally peppered with humor.


Dave was a really good sport about my relentless stalking. commenting.  I don’t know about him, but I kept hoping someone would join in the merriment – or tell us to knock it off.  I think Dave and I would have been the kind of kids that would have had to have been separated in class…or most likely to get kicked out of a bar together as adults.  I simply could not let him have the last word on my blog.

Make sure to read Dave’s winning entries in the Seven Deadly Sins Series – and he’s about due to win another round, I’m sure.  And he draws illustrations for each entry – he is a witty and talented man, for sure…and frankly I am beginning to resent him a lot.

Which reminds me – I am going to start posting entries in the next day or two.  I have had trouble with SpamBots submitting bogus, one- or two-word submissions, and submissions going to my spam folder (none from people I recognized) but I can’t read them there for some reason.  If you do not see your entry in the next few days, please let me know.  I’m working on cleaning up my inbox and might have missed one.

Please, for the love of all that is punny – do not let Dave win again.  Get your story in.

Deadline is Saturday, July 28 at Midnight…Join in the fun.
