It seems like you may not have eaten for days. Maybe you need a break.
That way a) you won’t have to shut down the comments and b) it will be so short that when you return from your day off you can read it for 3-5 minutes and hop in bed. The perfect day.

It’s a great idea. Readers, get to work! Click “Comments” to say something nice.
I’ll still monitor responses, of course. But something tells me this won’t reach the record of 293, set just last week on the very important topic of flowers in the Minuteman’s musket.
