I decided to post my daily comment about how much I hate liberals on Zak's blog since it was Sunday, and I don't know about you, but I frequently move quite slowly after hitting "reply," which, in this case would be directed at Zak himself, since his was the second comment after he'd responded to the first commenter.
Anyway, I started to write about Kennedy and how he botched the Cuban invasion. Then I did other things – watched TV, read a column, and finally I returned to wrap up my brilliant and pithy observation, finishing with:
"God how I hate liberals."
I was going to post that when it occurred to me that there was someone I hate more than liberals, so I changed the punchline to:
"God how I hate liberals and Timothy."
Then I posted it.
Then I thought, I should have added, "not necessarily in that order."
Then I moved on to other things
Then I went back to Zak and saw that there were now four comments.
I thought the fourth comment was probably Zak's, and I wondered, would he see the OBVIOUS humor in my comment, would he think I was serious and take me to task, or would he simply ignore it?
What I didn't bank on was that it was MY comment that was number four, and that because I'd taken so long from the start of my reply to the time I posted it, someone else had squeezed in between Zak and me…
Can you believe the coincidence, because I couldn't!? What are the odds? They gotta be enormous – unless, of course, that primo idiot, Queen of Frontal Nudity (or whatever her name is), is the one doing the odds calculating, that is.
Anyway, it looks exactly like I was writing my reply to Zak, noticed Timothy's non-response response, and decided to take a shot at him. I assure you, nothing could be further from the truth – I don't need a prompt to take a shot at Timothy, as I think I've amply demonstrated by now.
Nevertheless, I felt the need to make that clear because if I didn't, you'd miss three quarters to four fifths of the fun I had in discovering the chain of events that had unfolded, and I want you to know that I'm always looking out for you, my audience… and for Timothy too, naturally!?
