  1. I’m headed on the road for the next couple of weeks, and thought I’d leave for vacation with a light-hearted re-post from the sub-blog.

    See you in a fortnight or so!Report

    • Thanks! It didn’t get the same kind of attention as the Batman piece, but I still had a lot of fun writing it and figured I’d post it again in case anyone missed it when it was more tucked away.Report
