They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I don’t think the people who coined that phrase were ever absent for a long period. I also think the people who coined the phrase “coined a phrase” were so poor they didn’t have paper money, but that’s another story. Do you know what else is another story? Green Eggs And Ham. So was “Tootsie.” Try as you might you can’t deny that. Anyway, back to absence and the heart; I’ve been absent far too much in the back half of 2010, and it hasn’t made me any fonder of my family, it’s simply made me ... absent. I’m already more fond of my family than anything else on earth and a good portion of things on Jupiter. After being home most of the past three weeks I’m heading out again; all absence has made me today is mad. It’s also made me determined to get off the road - this joke blog will lead to a TV writing gig soon, I can feel it. You can help - forward my blog to the head writers of all the talk shows that you personally know or have heard of or slept with. The sooner you do, the sooner the fond can grow harder. If you get my drift. I’ll show you pictures.
