Hey Spotty! Where are you? We haven't heard from you today.
Spot's been really busy at his day job.
Do you even have a day job, Spot?
Well, okay, Spot didn't feel very well today.
C'mon Spotty, you're starting to sound like Alberto Gonzales: first it's one excuse, then it's another.
All right. Try this one. Spot's got writer's block.
That's more believable, anyway.
And Spot may have writer's block tomorrow, too, although tomorrow is a Thursday.
