Then I flung open the shutters of my second-story window and shouted at the nearest icon I could see.
"You there! Site Meter!"
The site meter looked up from where it sat crammed in the bottom corner of my blog. "Yes?"
"What day is it?!"
"Today? Why today is the day that you reach 10,000 hits!"
"Really? No, no you fool! It's Christmas Day!"
"What do you care? You're not religious."
"But I love to yell out of my second-story window, and this is the only day I can do it without the neighbors calling the police on me!"
"And God bless us, everyone."
"Are you being sarcastic, Site Meter? Sarcasm is very unbecoming of an icon."
