- The sensational: I was disemboweled. (When it's done by a skilled surgeon -- as in my case -- it's not nearly as ugly as it is in the sword and sandals movies. Although you wouldn't want to see my belly just now... in the movies or anywhere else.)
- The seasonal: I gave up my colon for Lent. (And I won't even get it back on Easter Sunday!)
- The grammatical: I went from a ":" to a ";"
I've already thanked you all for your good wishes. But I can't help myself: I've been reading comments. So let me be redundant and repetitive: Thank you again. More soon -- maybe as soon as tomorrow.
