Am I right in thinking that what you're saying is that 'unblocked' Block actually had a block about being blocked until he got properly unblocked, at which point blocked Block's block about being blocked became unblocked which led to the unblocking of Block's writer's block? Or did the unblocking of Block's block about writer's block come after the unblocking of Block's writer's block which had itself been blocking the unblocking of his block about his writer's block?
