And if you can’t figure it out, Googly Eyes is an author. Strange One and Stranger Two are Informants/Sources of research and the like, and Saturday–some mystery kid that goes by the name of Saturday who claims to be a know-it-all– well, she/he was simply thrown in for good measure. 🙂
This sounds much better if you give us all foreign accents:
Googly Eyes: Who goes there?
Stranger One: “Who?”
Stranger Two: “Lady Knows A Lot.”
Saturday (our anonymous mystery kid of the week: “Knows a lot about what?” Can’t be having competition on my corner of the block!”
Googly Eyes: “Says who?”
Saturday: “Says I!”
Googly Eyes: “Oh stuff it! Expertness is excellence in a royal robe–the stuff authors need oodles of.”
Saturday: Oh, jibbity ibbity! Pirates and Plato! Socrates is laughing now. Nonsense. Anybody can look it up in a book nowadays. What else do we have dictionaries and reference books for? Googling?
Googly Eyes: “Oh that’s just to pass the time and procrastinate.” We authors have oodles of that too–time, all of it relative. Ask Einstein. Another expert!
Saturday: “Oh cuttlefish!” Spit it out already. We’re all waiting for another fabulous list of yours–lots of time and all!”
Googly Eyes: Oh all right, since you won’t be Googling it. Fancy a list? Okay, really only just number one, for now.”
Just kidding….there’s more than one item here:
Pop back later for numero nueve!
Or…beat me to numero nueve, by adding to the list with your comments.
Does too much Googling lead to googly eyes? Let’s find out.
