This Sort of Thing

Fyodor Dostoevsky once said. ‘The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month.’

With this in mind I have taken to revealing on the worldwide web the contents of my journal once (maybe twice) a month, allowing fellow worldwide webbers to judge the level of foolery and comment accordingly.

But I am contractually obliged to produce precisely one hundred words per day; no more and no less. Hyphenated words only count as one and numbers and words written in the Cyrillic alphabet don’t count at all. I love loopholes!

Лесно е, като да вземеш бонбон от бебе.
