Do you remember the 80s show, Out of This World, in which a half-alien girl named Evie could freeze time by putting her pointer fingers together? Well, my father nicknamed me Evie long ago, and I always believed that one day I could put my pointer fingers together just like her to pause everything.
That said, due to a somewhat crazy last two weeks (at work and home), which culminated tonight in a (second) flat tire (in three weeks) at the house I just moved away from (one week ago), I’m going to request that you play along and imagine that I can freeze time too—thereby putting tonight’s blog post (and potentially Thursday’s) on hold for just a wee bit. My apologies, but I’ll return very soon.
After all, next week is Halloween, and I do write dark fantasy.
Thanks for your patience, and I’ll be back soon, folks!
