The Texture Of Things

Big Post Brewing, Pun Not Intended

May 14th, 2007

A couple of weeks ago, I commented on a post of KLee’s about being fat in America. The comment kept taking a life of its own as I drafted it. (Note to self: if you are commenting on another blogger’s post and thinking of it as “drafting a comment,” you might just need to write your own gaddam post. Love, amy.) So, I finally cut off my comment and threatened promised indicated I would post my thoughts on the topic here.

What is coming is a tangled post, but I can’t put it off any longer. I’ve been trying to write a post about my upcoming surgery (hernia, potential endometriosis, potential scar tissue from past surgeries, unlikely-but-I-am-not-ruling-it-out discovery of an alien), but I repeatedly find it intersecting with what I wanted to say in KLee’s comment section. So I’ve decided to let the two posts be married. Due to the length of the draft I have as of this writing, I think I’ll have to post it in two segments since I haven’t figured out how to fix the theme code’s problem with super long posts.

Until I post again,

    You weren’t hijacking my comments, you were simply responding to the topic at hand. Don’t feel bad about leaving long comments at my place — it’s good to have discussion.

    I know the prospect of surgery is daunting. I hope that it all goes so well that you amaze your doctors with your speedy recovery.

    Thanks, that’s cool. I haven’t quite figured out when a comment is too long, so I tend to err on the side of caution. When I get this set of posts done, I’ll return to your post and add a comment pointing back here, if that’s okay.

    Thank you also for the kind wishes. I am also hoping for a super speedy recovery. 🙂
