Healing up from last Friday's surgery is taking a little longer than I expected, and so I am going to put off returning with a full-scale MNB for a few days.
I really appreciate all the kind emails you sent me last week. A common refrain referenced my description of the procedure as "minor surgery." More than a few of you wrote, "Surgery only is minor when it is done to someone else."
To which I now would respond: Damn right.
I'll be back soon. I promise.
