One! Two! Three! FOUR!

Hi there! Dave-El here and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You.  I used to celebrate key milestones on this blog. I made a big deal of blog post #100

And blog post #200. 

And blog post #300. 

You get the idea. Anyway, I would-

And blog post #400. 

And blog post #500. 

OK, I don't need to keep doing that. We all know how to count upwards in increments of 100. So let's move on. 

Recently however I have let-

And blog post #600.

Son of a bitch! 

And blog post #700.




OK, then. Fine, got that settled. 

As I was saying, I got to a point where I have let-

And blog post #800.


And blog post #900. 

And finally-

Oh thank God! 

Blog post #1000. 


Well, I hope you're happy! Just had to get that out of your system, huh? 


As I was saying, I got to the point after blog post #1000 that I have let milestones go by without comment. 

Like blog post #1100




OK, then. I-

And blog post #1200.



My blog. Is trying. To KILL ME! 



But there was a blog post number that I just could not let go by. And it's this one right here.

Blog post #1234!

Man, I love a good number sequence.  And you just can't beat 1234.  

Seriously, if I'm awake at, say, 12:15 AM, I will not allow myself to go to sleep until the clock comes around to 12:34 AM. I love it when I catch sight of the time at 12:34 PM; it adds an extra spring to my step for the rest of the day. 

If I make a purchase with a total price of $12.34, well, that just makes my whole week!

I once found a frozen turkey that was 12 pounds 34 ounces. Nirvana achieved! 

If I'm behind a car with a licence plate that has a number sequence of 1234, I will honk my horn with delight and pledge to make that car part of my religious faith. 

I think it's a damn shame that December can't have 34 days so we can have a calendar date of 12/34 every year. 

One time I was watching a basketball game and the score was 24 to 68. That in itself is a number sequence of even numbers: two, four, six, eight! Who do we appreciate? 

But I also realized that divisible by 2, that score was 12 to 34. 1234! 

The Lord speaks to us in mysterious ways. 

1234 makes the perfect count for a to-do list.

So anyway, this right here is blog post # 1234 of I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You. 


OK, that's it. 

Thanks for popping by. Another post coming up. Until then, remember to be good to one another. 



I really don't want to end this post. It's 1234! But I know...

I know...

All good things....must...

<Put hand to my chest>

Just remember, blog post #1234: you will always be precious to me! 

<Shed tear>

Now, go! Fly and be free, blog post #1234!
