Long absence absent abscess

I’ve been away for nearly a month. The WordPressiverse probably hasn’t noticed, which is an upside to not being one of those blogs that are followed by the thousands. This isn’t self-pity. I don’t really do that.

With no one clamoring for explanations of where I’ve been, or what I’ve been doing, I still feel a small obligation to the void to fill in the gaps.

These weren’t weeks lost to dipsomaniacal frenzy. That would have been nice.

Nor time stolen by anguish or grief. Though I say a silent thought of camaraderie with those affected.

Instead, furuncles.

Not sexy. Not dramatic. Not very photogenic. Lingonberry on challah, however, makes for an excellent, and disturbingly accurate substitute.
