Lonely Spider

Today is an exciting riddle. I have written 1287 consecutive daily Blogs since August 22, 2016, and yet this is the first time I have ever posted on February 29th. This is one small step for a Blogger but one giant leap into more idiocy. My next step will be to lobby for February 30th, last seen in the Soviet Union in 1930 and 1931. Sweden celebrated it in 1712 but most people view a 30th day in February like a two dollar bill. Strange because: (1) eleven other months harbor a 30th day without controversy and (2) one and five dollar bills have no circulation problems. The world will little note nor long remember what is said here today but a small group of readers on deathbeds long in the future will rue the time they wasted reading these epistles and playing spider solitaire. Eric G. Wilson explains why people read my Blog in his book titled Everyone Loves a Good Train Wreck. Apparently he sheds light on why we cannot look away but I have been too busy binge watching Better Call Saul on Netflix to read Wilson’s book. I think his title says it all anyway. Brevity is the soul of wit after all.
