You too can vote on the next topic

I can hardly believe that I have been doing this for 50 days and I have so much to do, but if I don't write my words now I'll have to write them at bedtime and that isn't a good time for me to be writing — well it is productive time for me, but there are other distractions that means that psychologically it isn't the best time.

Looking at my list of topics to write about I could either write about my wedding ring and why it brings me happiness or I could write about the long saga of getting my wife's Apple Watch Series 4 Gold 40mm Pink Sand Sports Loop watch fixed — ever get the feeling I'm padding my words here?

You can vote in the comments about which you would like me to write about next. Neither may seem appealing but that's what I have on my list.

I also have another item which is "It's just an edge case" which was intended to be an article about the importance of at least understanding why an edge case bug in your code occurs, even if you don't — or can't — fix it. Just assuming that it is an "edge case" and therefore of unimportance I find to be a fatal mistake. If you are technically inclined, you can vote for that topic.

Finally, the person outside who was mowing their lawn, or blowing leaves or whatever it was has finished, turned off their noise making machine and left me in peace. Enough silence to concentrate enough to write these final words that make up what is essentially a filler post. However, question: if it is a post about the struggle to write a filler post, is it really a filler post?
