Okay, I guess you probably figured out there was no post last night. Now, that is not terribly unusual these days, I am sad to report. From a high of 368 posts in 2012 we dropped to an abysmal 306 posts in 2014. But even that year, the veritable nadir of our productivity, we had 214 posts by September 1, instead of the paltry 211 we are currently sporting.
The fact is, the Old Bat just ain't what she used to be. I can't count on her to help me with the blog like she used to, and I can't even count on her to *be* here to play with me and cuddle me and keep me company as much as I would appreciate either.
Last night, for example, was "Back to School Night" (as if any adult in his or her right mind wants to spend two tedious hours listening to a bunch of teachers natter on at them)! Didn't they have enough of that when they were teenagers themselves? Frankly, I think the Human was probably talking to herself. Which, come to think of it, isn't much different from what she does all day long with those kids anyway.
Anyway, now she's stalking me. It's sort of flattering in its way, I suppose. But I need to hold out long enough to keep my self-respect intact. Don't you think so?
