Making My One Wish Come True

No, not the wish where the Wayward Boy Scout and Sarcastro and I all go out drinking and they recite

The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.

I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,
I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.

The last scud of day holds back for me,
It flings my likeness after the rest and true as any on the shadow’d wilds,
It coaxes me to the vapor and the dusk.

I depart as air, I shake my white locks at the runaway sun,
I effuse my flesh in eddies, and drift it in lacy jags.

I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.

to me from heart.

The one where I finally come up with a FAQ for this place. The only drawback is that I don’t really get a lot of frequently asked questions. So, I guess I’ll make some up. But here’s your chance, if you have some, to ask away.

  1. Why haven’t you come out with TCP boxers or panties? Wouldn’t that make more sense?

    Send me 10% of the profits.

  2. What frustrates me is how you open these great topics that interconnect to the entire human experience. Six to 60 people jump in with great comments. Within hours the post is buried under the next entry or entries, which range from the mundane to the graduate-level esoteric. One could spend most of one’s time batting arguments back and forth, forgetting to eat or go to work. It can be like intellectual catnip.

    Not that all the posts are so engrossing. But you have a lot of readers from many backgrounds in what is essentially a forum, but not really set up as a forum.

    Ah well. It is what it is. A connecting point that has evolved for a certain set of minds.

    I’ll be over in my obscure backwater, painting designs on myself with mud. Grunt.

  3. Oh, Exador! I love the idea of you wearing Tiny Cat Pants underwear. Would you read me Whitman wearing only TCP boxers?

    Cafiend, that is neither a question nor a barbaric yawp.

    Just saying.

  4. One question people might be wondering is whether tiny modifies cat or pants. Sure, I guess if the cat is tiny, then so are the pants. But, maybe people are thinking that they are regular pants covered in tiny cats. Maybe they are pants that are too tiny for even a tiny cat.

    Another question I have is why you don’t categorize your posts the way many other bloggers do – just don’t want to be that organized, don’t want to tell people what it’s supposed to be about, can figure out the code to do that?

    I think people are also curious about how product sales are doing and if you’ve really spent all the money on beer.

    Maybe you could use a FAQ section to remind people that this is all truth, no fiction here.

    Maybe one FAQ could be about the value of psedonyms and how you come up with all the characters names.

    I’ll keep working on this.

  5. I can’t help but point out that ladies underwear would be better.
    Hello? Panties?

    Don’t you gals like to claim you have a “tiny cat”, if you know what I mean.

    And I know you do.

  6. The only ladies underwear they have are thongs and it will be a cold day in hell when I sell thong underwear with “tiny cat pants” on it.

    Don’t make me come down there and fight you.

  7. Professor,
    Blogger is stupid and doesn’t have a categories option. Good point on the other items – I always pictured tiny pants (compared to human pants) on a regular-sized cat, and also wonder how sales are going.

  8. I’ve always just wondered, What size are the Tiny Cat Pants?” and now I guess I have to clarify; the ones referenced in the title and not the ones available for Exador.

    Can you measure those little suckers? (That could apply to Exador as well.)

  9. I make it a general rule to never know the exact penis size of a married man (especially one with an armed wife), but “tiny” is not the first thing that comes to mind when one meets the Wayward Boy Scout.

  10. Am I too late? Because I’ve always wondered why their’s only one boob freckle. Three would make so much more of an impact.

  11. I have decided I want one of those muscle shirts called a wifebeater with Tiny Cat Pants on it.
    The irony is I used to work with battered women.
    No one will get the irony buy me, but that’s alright.
    I think it will also take away me looking butch in a wifebeater because there is a cat in pants on the front.
    I don’t mind looking butch. Makes me popular wid de ladies.

  12. Wendy, I have caved. You thong-liking weirdos can now buy them if you have the urge.

    Newscoma, I don’t think they have a wifebeater, exactly, but there’s lots of other stuff that will make all the girls swoon.

    I know when I see someone wearing a Tiny Cat Pants shirt, I want to make out with them.
