P&S Call It Quits

Dear Readers,

Due to irreconcilable differences, Rich and I have decided that it would be best if we went our separate ways.

We have tried to work through or hide our venom-laden feelings, but based on recent posts and some of your comments, it is clear that we have been unable to successfully disguise the underriding tone of our interaction with each other.

The Realm of Possibility and our writing collaboration efforts are the real victims here, and we also apologize to our many readers. From this point forward, Rich has custody of the Realm from Sunday through Friday, and I receive visitation rights on Saturday. For those of you who are interested, I will retain all rights to any of our writing collaborations that include characters who are amputees, and Rich will keep control of "You can never say goodbye, Brian Renehan".

I know that many of you may be hurt or confused right now. And that's OK. But don't feel like you have to suffer alone. On Saturdays, the Realm will be a safe place to express any questions or just to vent some of the pain. Please don't hesitate to do so.

What a relief. I didn't know how much more of this I could take.

At least you picked a good day for the announcement.

codepoke said...

Alright, now.

You either need to reannounce on some day other than April 1, or you need to admit the whole thing was an elaborate ruse. I was assuming (and applauding) the latter. If it's the former, then I take back my April Fool's response and use my saddest emoticon.

Your April Fool's repsonse was entirely appropriate.

And quite a ride it was! I'm glad it's over.

You had me going good.

Maybe we should get Jimmy Carter over here to mediate!

That may help!


codepoke said...

Do they really need to build houses, though? Or maybe they need to embrace a murderous despot?

You know he is a Nuke-Yeller physicist. He might figure something out.

You never know, maybe he'll suggest a hug-fest like he did for Begin and Sadat. Because that worked so well.
