Dear FIFA 2010 World Cup,

Don’t get me wrong. I’m really glad you’re here and all. You’re bringing a lot of much-needed attention to South Africa. You’re even bringing traffic to my blog. (Thanks, by the way.)

But see, your timing is off. I have this really important matter to attend to.


Well, it’s just some specific business I need to attend to and…

It requires a lot of my time and some consistency.

But you’ve showed up and I’m busy all over the place — doing really important things, but, ugh,

This other thing I need to take care of has kind of gotten kicked to the curb.

Could you come back in a week or two?
