You might have noticed a short gap in my 20 Posts In 20 Days Marathon. Just pretend I took a break for a drink of water--or something--a long drink of water. I find those "I haven't posted in awhile, and here's why" posts boring, so I'll not bore you with one.
But, who says one has to do a marathon all at once? Didn't the rabbit stop and rest under the tree when racing with the tortoise? He still won, didn't he? I've just been resting under the tree, that's it. Now watch me sprint. I've got two more days don't I? Oh, no, I just realized I looked at the calendar wrong. I was thinking in terms of a month to do the marathon. It's 20 days. I think my 20 days are long gone.
What to do? Should I continue? I'm loath to give up. Here I am midway through the race. I can't just slink off into the bushes and pretend I'm only a pedestrian. But, if I continue with the series of posts, can I still call it a marathon? Sure, I can. It's my blog. I can call it anything I want to.
The marathon is still on. Only now that I've already violated the terms, I can go at my own pace. Maybe I'll write a post a day, maybe more, maybe less. I'm stretching, getting ready to sprint for the finish, even if ten days late. At least I'll get sympathy coverage in the media. What media? They've all gone home? Come back! Look, it might be worthwhile.
