These are the words for the wordfish. He breathes them and poops in them and then breathes them again. He lives right here in this blog, feeding on occasional “likes” and “follows” and “comments.” His name is Dave (per one of you). But here’s the problem: you guys have been feeding him too much. Last time we saw him he was just a wee little thing. He was hungry and scared. But now the guy’s bloated, confident, and taking up space. Look how big he is! He’s totally messing with the aesthetic here. What a sloppy-looking post. I’m embarrassed. He can barely fit in the words! Too many readers left “likes” last time, and now this is what we have to deal with. If you guys keep feeding him (or subscribing to this blog) who knows how big he’ll get. Geez, this never happened to the first wordfish, Patrick 2. Nobody really fed him and he just eventually died of starvation. I was kinda secretly hoping that would happen to Dave too, because I really didn’t want to have to keep worrying about him and changing his water all the time. I’m a young man. I kinda just wanted to live my life. But now I got a beluga whale on my hands. Thanks, readers.
