Why'd you take so much time off?

When my friend first asked me that question regarding the pause in blogging, I couldn't help but remember Stephen Wright's lines:

I was on a ski lift when the guy next to me says:

It's been a long time since I've been skiing.

Me too, was in an accident. How about you? Why'd you take so much time off?

Just got out of prison. Want to know why I was in?

Not really. No, go ahead, tell me.

I was sent to prison for pushing a guy off a ferris wheel for absolutely no reason.

I think I may remember you.

It is hard to understand how a cemetery raised its burial cost and blamed it on the cost of living.
