O is for Opportunity

is for opportunity.  And I would like to take this opportunity to talk about the letter K.  See, I have been trying to do this alphabetic post idea, sort of to freshen things up and see what it's like, and I have been doing pretty well I think, except for the fact that last week some wires got a little crossed here at the Worldwide Headquarters and we forgot to do a post for the letter K.
    For your part, I am just a little disappointed.  Only one person took the time to remind me that I had forgotten the letter K, and as such I am forced to assume that he is the only one who noticed, so thanks to Brad Perala from "Gotta Keep Em' Bloggerated."  You win the special prize, which you will receive once I decide what the special prize is.
     So let's talk about excuses.  In the end there really is none.  There was just some confusion between who was supposed to write up a post, one of the Unpaid Interns or myself, and since we are really not all that different when you get right down to it - except for the unpaid part, I am highly paid; oh, and the part where they are kept chained up and I am allowed to roam free - but other than that we are pretty similar.  As such, instead of us both doing a post because we weren't sure, we both assumed the other was going to because we are lazy.
    All that being said, I have managed to come up with a bunch of excuses that I could have used but did not, and I don't want to deprive you of them, so here is a sampling of some of them:

-  The dog ate my letter K post.

-  The Unpaid Interns are functionally illiterate so we shouldn't be surprised they forgot a letter somewhere along the way.

-  The letter K was purposefully left out in honor of the greatest vehicle of all time: The Chrysler K-Car.

-  The letter K was out of town at a press conference announcing its new endorsement deal with Sesame Street.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, dedicated to the premise that all men are created equal, but that the letter K should be banned unconditionally.

-  No, no, no.  We didn't forget K, we just hid it behind N.  It's there, you just have to look a little harder.

-  K is for Klu Klux Klan, and we don't endorse that kind of business here at Big Dave and Company.

-  They were out of K when we went to get our alphabet at the dicount store, so we were unable to feature that letter.

-  You're upset about K, wait until you see what happens when we get to T!

That, Company, is just a smattering of the many excuses that I was able to come up with in the instants after I read Brad's comments - you know, that knee-jerk reaction that everyone has when things first go awry before they realize that they should just deal with it and admit there was a screw up.  I should have just spit them out and that would have been neat.  Silly K.  We will get to you later.

I thought it might have been a test or a game of some sort at first. I was second-guessing if I should point the fact out that you skipped a letter at first. I thought you had bigger plans for the letter K, but I guess I was wrong.

Thanks for the shoutout!
