Short and pithy?

On this, the very morning of the mental-morning-writing eureka moment, it seems that short and pithy isn’t being considered today.

On top of that, today’s five posts are being written – you guessed it – before sunrise.

Carl had some regrets. One of these amazing women has called it “quits”. Adventure awaits, right?
