Somewhere in Minnesota – November 1, 2013
“No, you have to post something!”
Calm down, Wally!
“I’m not going to calm down. You can’t just wait until Monday to keep posting.”
Why not? I have to think about what I wrote. I have to edit it. I don’t want to rush it.
“I have three reasons. Snow flurries. Highs in the low 30s. Water turning to ice.”
What does that matter now?
“It matters because you’re from Florida and people will think you’re dead.”
Awe, that is sweet, Wally, you’re worried about people worried about me?
“No, I just want to make sure everyone knows you aren’t dead. I’ve got a reputation to keep.”
“I can’t have people thinking you died out there. That is bad for business.”
Oh, you think they’ll blame you for the end of the trip?
“Easy now, don’t even start that rumor. Wally had nothing to do with the end of the trip, hear that people?”
Fine, now they know.
“Now get back to writing.”
