In memory of the unremembered

I had an idea for a blog post, but I forgot it. It would have been a really good blog post, too. I don't think I'm exaggerating too much to say that it would have been the single most hilarious blog post you ever read. But it would have been sad, also, and you would have looked at it, and nodded to yourself, and thought how poignant and transient everything in life is. It would have been a thoughtful blog post, whatever it was going to be about, but it would also have been a wonderfully light-hearted, whimsical and quirky take on life. Even though you may not have noticed it at the time*. All in all, I think it's safe to say that you would have been impressed by that blog post, perhaps not while you were reading the blog post, but later. If I remember what the idea was, I'll be sure to let you know.

Instead, you're stuck with this blog post, which is nothing much really. I mean, this is the sort of blog post that, if you wrote it, you wouldn't let other people know about it. It's a up-to-not-much blog post. It's a nothing-impressive-as-such blog post. I mean, it's a bit of a blip, really, as blog posts go. It is pretty dull, though not, unfortunately, so dull as to be one of the dullest blog posts in the world featuring on the dullest blog in the world, which are all really, excessively dull to such a superlative extent that it they are, in their own way, little art forms of dullness, and therefore, ironically, quite entertaining and perfect in their own way. No, this blog post is more your ordinary, mediocre form of dullness, which is just dully dull, in a dulling way. Sorry.

So this is just a post about the post that I didn't write, written to distract your attention from the post that I did write, but didn't write about, which was this post.

*I mean, it may have involved a pun like 'If you make a Swiss roll by pushing it off the hill, do you do the same thing with sausages'? But it would have stated this pun in such an exquisitely delicate way, with such perfect comic timing, that you would have been rolling** in the aisles, which in this case would probably have been your chair, with laughter. You really should regret my not writing that post.

**I'm not sure if you would have been 'rolling in the aisles' like sausages or Swiss people. But that's hardly the point, is it?

What you should do is when you think of something you want to write a blog post about, then write a blog post about it in order to remind you later on to write a blog post about the thing you wanted to write a blog post about in the first place. With some minor adaptation, this can also work for things you don't want to write a blog post about.

I'd do it, but only if the rest of you readers promise not to read the posts that you shouldn't read and read the ones that you should. I'm sure it'll came naturally to you.
