"We really need to write another story, like the sushi saga," Rob said to me as we left the Coldstone Creamery.

"Yeah, we really should," I said.

"The problem is, our lives really aren't that interesting," he went on.



I looked at him for a moment, astounded that he could say such a thing.

"Rob." I said. "The sushi experience wasn't all that interesting. Picking up our dog at the animal shelter wasn't all that interesting. Moving a bunch of crap out of my uncle's house wasn't all that interesting! It's the whole writing-about-it thing that makes it interesting in the first place!"

"Well ..." he said, unconvinced.

"Why, hell, I could probably write a whole saga just about getting you to do a FitDay journal," I exclaimed.

He turned to look at me skeptically. "Oh, I don't think so," he said, "I mean, what could you do with that? Seriously."

"Rob." I said. "I got like two thousand words out of you and your cell phone addiction."

Rob was beginning to look a bit nervous, "Okay, well, I still call slander on that one," he began.

I waved him off. "Sure, sure, whatever, but seriously. We could totally do the FitDay experience."

"I don't know ... I still don't really think you could take that anywhere."

I looked at him.

"Is that ... a challenge?" I asked, in a deceptively gentle tone of voice.

Rob looked a bit anxious now. "I ... I don't KNOW!"

Truthfully, I didn't know either. But it definitely had ... shall we say ... possibilities.


(and yes, I will be finishing "Method and Process." Just had to get this out.)

Do you have a cell phone?

Do you know where it is right now?

Have you used it in the last 24 hours? How many times? :P

Aw, people lost interest in the doggie/lampshade story, so I just let it drop.

Sushirob's cell phone addiction was part of the sushi saga.

Rob still denies every word of it.

And, Rob, that's "fictionalization" not "fictionization."

Thought you'd like to know. :-)

Who?!

Who lost interest?


I, for one, did not.

Translation: The backstory was creating a far to large a let down scenario for the main story.

yeah, well I've only been up a half hour

And i did loose my cell. I used maybe 200 minutes a month, maybe, usually far less.

Well, after all, how many minutes does it take to call someone from the gas station to ask them what time it is?

you see, this is PROOF you are fabricating the entire tale! The cell phone IS a watch. I look at it for the time, I would have no need to call you to find out the time, because I would have to see the time just to dial you.

Yes, I knew you'd say that. It's a good excuse, isn't it? But then, they're all good excuses.

You know, admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery.

When did you misplace it? Because 200 minutes in ten days seems like a lot.
