I had absolutely no intention of doing this one when April began. I didn't even start on the first day. On the second day I knocked out two Lies, and then participated on-schedule the rest of the month. I was surprised to discover that people actually liked this nonsense. So I thank you.
The only problem in all this is that readers who check in ever again will probably expect more of the same kind of material. This blog has a relatively long history, and at no point was there anything else like A to Z Lies on it. In fact, there really was no humor at all previously. But I've long wanted to be a humor writer. So this was a step in the right direction, and I thank everyone who checked in, said they liked it, and didn't notice how awful some of it was (at least they didn't say how awful some of it was, and for that, I thank you twice over), not even the time I mentioned the horrible abominations of wood made out of adorable animals (this occurred in the previous post).
(Horrible Abominations would make a great name for a rock band.)
(That's a line I've been stealing from Dave Barry for years. This is not a lie.)
(Dave Barry is a genius.)
(That wasn't a lie, either.)
(Here's a lie: We don't ride zebras only because we don't know if we should be riding the white or black parts.)
(The preceding lie is a tribute to my mother.)
(I miss her greatly.)
