Addressing his supporters, the newly elected prime minister of Canada (like that's anything), said, "More than a hundred years ago a great prime minister, Wilfrid Laurier, talked about sunny ways, he knew that politics can be a positive force and that is the message Canadians sent today. . . . . Sunny ways, my friends, sunny ways, this is what positive politics can do.”
I imagine that, behind him, one of his aides insistently whispered, "Days, Sir. DAYS."
Just to clarify, I did write something yesterday but really had no idea what to do with it. It's not exactly a complete, fully formed. . . thing. Rather, it's a half-formed paragraph that feels like it belongs in a story--but it's a story, alas, that I don't know--even if I'm the one ostensibly making it up. So, for now, this piece resides in my draft folder. Maybe it will be retrieved someday, maybe not. Perhaps in the event of my hopefully timely demise it can see light in what is sure to be the mammoth blockbuster collection of the unpublished writings of the Solipsist. The point is, I didn't want you, my loyal followers to think that I had so quickly abandoned my Sunday pledge to get back on the stick and start writing again. You've been disappointed enough.
