I was thrilled -- as I'm sure you guys were -- to hear that our friend KWillow is on the mend from emergency surgery, thanks to the Miracle of Modern Morphine® (now with Retsyn™, Chlorinol-3, and Flavor Crystals®!)! But I'd barely had time to heave a sigh of relief, when Annti emailed to tell me that the Universe has decided to sneak up behind another esteemed member of the Crapper Community and clout him over the head with the ACME Clown Hammer of Fate™ (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.).
Realist, who has been enlivening the Comments at WO'C for many years, has been struck twice in quick succession by the Lighting Bolt of Bad News® (sorry for the excessive branding, but if there's one thing I've learned from Google, it's to patent everything), which entitles him to tell Probability to go suck it, but otherwise has no obvious upside. The unhappy gist of it all is that his wife, Madame Realist, recently suffered two potentially fatal health problems which put her in the hospital (she's still there, at last report) and required major surgery.
I understand the prognosis is optimistic, but Annti figured a little support and positive energy couldn't hurt, and asked that we post a virtual Get Well card and send our "best wishes, kindest thoughts, and depthless wealth of love" to the Realists. So if you can, please drop a comment below.
Thanks everyone. Keep safe, stay well, and barring any further disasters, we should be getting back to regular blogging in the next day or so.
