Middle Ground

“Okay,” she says hesitantly, “I’m back.”

“Oh really?” you reply, eying her mistrustfully.  “Nice to see you …” turning back to the Parcheesi Board.

“No, I’m really back, I swear.  I’m over Bejeweled Blitz and Baseball and all that stuff.  Yeah, well, there’s Fantasy Football, but I’m not obsessed.  The Eagles kinda suck and my fantasy team loses pretty much all the time so …”

“So you have no place else to go and you’re back here expecting a big welcome are you?”

“Yeah, kinda.”

“Let me think about it.  I was pissed, you know.  The way you dropped out of sight was very, very irresponsible for a blogger.  Someone could have gotten hurt.  Know what I mean?”

“Not really.”

“Never mind.  Just tell me why I should trust you now.”

“Because I am telling you that you can?”

“Yeah … right.”

“Okay, just watch … you’ll see.  And it won’t be the kind of superficial crap that I’d been writing there at the end, either.  I’m getting too old to waste my time on stuff like baseball scores and Dancing With the Stars.  Nope – we’re going for deep thoughts and political commentary … the kind of stuff Alice likes … and Boltgirl writes about.”

“Boltgirl?  If you’d been paying attention you’d know that she’s been gone, too.  You guys both suck if you ask me, and I’ll believe it when I see it.  Deep thoughts … yeah … right.”

“Okay, fair enough.  Maybe deep thoughts and political commentary is a tall order, even for JordanCornblog.  How about we go for the middle ground?  I think you can expect at least 2 moderately engaging posts of at least 3 paragraphs every week.  And let’s just say, if one of the posts contains a thought that we can agree qualifies as deep, then that will count as two posts.  Can we go with that?”

“I’m not listening …”
