Q: Mr. Blumen, why don't you write something every day? It seems as if you run hot and cold for days at a time. Why is that?
A: I don't think of something worth writing every day. I have to be in the mood, and sometimes I go for days on end without being in the mood. You might say, I run hot and cold.
Q: I did say that.
A: Well that cinches it. It's been my unstated policy to refrain from posting anything that's not worth writing or reading. Sometimes it's hard to tell. Sometimes there's a fine line between sparkling words and self-humiliation.
Q: So how do you tell the difference?
A: I don't know.
