I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t flattered by this week’s results:

    My wife, who loves taking in the sun (she was born and reared in Florida) came running in to me this afternoon and said, “Chuck, there’s this real weird inflating sound outside, like a giant balloon filling up. What can it be?”

    I ran outside, cupped my hand to my ear and easily heard the sound she’d reported. It was like listening to a thousand bored carnival workers pushing valves and filling balloons with helium for squirming brats at the county fair. Along with my wife, I was flummoxed as to what it could be.

    Then I remembered: Just as she’d come rushing in, I’d been reading about Book’s spectacular win in this week’s Watcher’s Council competition. With the same mental quickness that has allowed me to slice and dice Zach so casually and effortlessly, I realized what the sound was: Book’s ego inflating.

    I am writing this on my old laptop in a coffeehouse that has free wifi. I and other Book lovers are gathering now to descend once evening falls, with pitchforks and other sharp objects, on Book’s ego, where we will attempt to pierce it and return it to its normal condition.  

    Pray for us.

    Gosh darn it, Charles.  I was hoping that no one noticed.  Fortunately for the world’s survival, being home with the family has a way of deflating the ego bubble.  You’ve probably noticed that there are little shreds of ego scattered about here and there, but the big balloon is no longer.

    Kidding aside, I’m damned proud of you, Book. That was a landslide. Ain’t never seen the like of it in the Watcher’s Council.

    You go, girl.
