I want to introduce to you one of my newest blogging pals. Her name is Georgia Little Pea. Isn't she lovely? She lives in the mythical land of Australia. I have several friends who claim to live in that same location. I'm not quite sure where they actually reside. Possibly somewhere outside the Rt. 495 force field.
Please stop by and give Georgia a big old DWB howdy do. You can visit her here.
Now on to the topic of Momma's blue, italicized post of the other day. While she was quite appreciative of all your comments, I, for one, was slightly perturbed when she took the opportunity of posting her Mango gifts to lament her decidedly limited ability to transcribe my words.
It is not easy for an erudite chap such as yours truly to be saddled with a secretary whose vocabulary tends towards HBO words and meaningless exclamatories.
Take, for example, our recent exchange regarding captioning a walkie photo.
Momma: Oh Dexter, what shall we caption this photo?
Me: I suggest "Acquiescent canine demonstrates extreme imperturbability when asked to assume pose."
Momma: Imperta what what what? WTF did you just say?
Me: Just type it.
Momma: Maybe you meant "Check out this big dude. Good thing he's chained up or he would take off like a total giant nightmare holiday terror."
Me: It is an inanimate object, foolish woman. Let's try to get past this whole pretending thing and stick with reality.
Momma: Who're you calling foolish? I have THUMBS, you know! Besides your readers love to see you posed with the soldier every year. They've been all begging for it.
Me: Which readers might those be?
Momma: All of them! Like 87 thousand. Totally. I HAD to take that photo.
Me: Post it if you must. I'll be listening to the BBC when you're done.
Momma: Yeah, that's right, run away. Leave the blogging to me. I don't think like a lab, you know. It isn't easy to read your thoughts.
And so, friends, we have the photo itself (captioned by momma).
