I just arrived home in time to see Al being taken away in handcuffs. Even with his hands behind his back, he managed to flip me off. But the kids are fine and so is Andrea. (She’s on the phone with Fidelity, changing our account numbers.)
I really apologize for this mess. I was hoping Al would be a little less than “ordinary,” but I was expecting too much. Once he’s freed on bail, he’ll be returning to the obscurity of his anonymous blog, where the publication of his private thoughts won’t hurt anyone, no matter how mean-spirited or outrageous or just plain boring he chooses to be. I think it’s best that way.
We’ll resume our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow. I’m going to keep Al’s posts up as a testament to my stupidity, but I’m going to hide most of them in “continuation” pages.
I probably don’t need to say it, but Al’s been fired as our yardman.
