The End of an Era

Well, Company, the well-intentioned April Alphabetic Post Event is over, and quite frankly, we here at Big Dave and Company couldn't be happier.  I am glad to no longer be shackled by the strictures of the Roman alphabet when writing a post every day, and I am glad that I don't have to look at that calendar ticking down to the end of April, when we were supposed to be done by.  So some extenuating circumstances forced us a little bit into May and we forgot the letter K, it's not the end of the world, right?  I didn't think so.
     The Unpaid Interns are happy that the event is over because they begged and pleaded to have a chance to write some posts and I let them, but they found out that coming up with gold day after day is nearly impossible.  Now I get rub it in their face, which is infinitely more fun than my usual caging them up and throwing things at them, but it is a nice break for them from the cages and they are happy to get the writing weight off their shoulders.  Until the next group of Unpaid Interns shows up next semester that is.
     "So what about the letter K?  Aren't you going to give it the treatment too?  I mean, you did it for all the other letters for the most part except for Z yesterday when you clearly copped out."  That was you saying that, Company.   And yeah, you are right, I probably should.  But I have already written a bunch of post here so I will have to give it the treatment in short:
     K is for Kangaroo.  Kangaroos are neat animals from Australia.  When I was a kid there was a man on a show called Captain Kangaroo.  That was neat.  Kangaroos have pouches in which they raise their young, and people used to teach them to box.  Sometimes they get run over by road trains in the remote areas of Queensland.
     There, now that K is settles, the alphabetic bullshit is over, May is here, and I am healing up nicely from my time in the hospital, all is right in the world, and maybe we can get to fixing up all the bullshit that we need to take care of around here, housekeeping-wise.  Like all this "Under Construction" bullshit.  I promise to have that taken care of one way or another one of these days.  Otherwise, just keep reading, we are glad to have you along as we move into summer in the northern hemisphere, and winter in the southern.  And keep listening to the Big Dave and Company Podcast every Thursday here or on iTunes, unless of course you haven't been listening in which case what the fuck is wrong with you?  You should listen to it.  That is all for now. Thanks for reading!
