Courage, sister

A sister blogger in crisis:

I've been reading things for the last 2 hours and haven't found anything bloggable. I'm beginning to think it's not the news. It's me. I'm having a medical test that demands that I not drink anything this morning. (A routine test.) And I really want some coffee. This blog — I'm beginning to think — is fueled by coffee. Without coffee... I've got nothing. I'll have morphine before I have my next cup of coffee. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is going to give us the answer on guns today. Collective right or individual right? I'll put up a post so you can talk about it without me. I'll be back here eventually... with, I'm told, impaired judgment (from the morphine). Yet my brain is already impaired from lack of coffee....
UPDATE - she's back, and she's okay!

This is the second time I’ve used the “Blogger in crisis” title, for a situation that is clearly not a crisis. Not in the “seven feet of water in my living room” sense.

Not that I’m going to stop, mind you. I’ll just have to think of something stronger if I’m ever writing about a fellow blogger who’s really in crisis.

Oh, and check the comments on that post. Steve R writes:

Amen, brother. Amen.
