The latest in a series of inventive dialogues between Fish Obit Editors Cousin Rob, as well as Margaret, and Robin, concerning Complaints, Ambiguity, Editorial Disagreement, Crowd-Sourcing, Migrational Topics and Weekend Sales.
Rob: So we've gotten some pretty grumpy calls about the groundhog story. People don't get what happened with the poem.
Margaret: Bummer, but oh well, hey, this is Art.
Robin: I never should have gone to the bathroom.
Margaret: We could do Groundhog ReDux, the alternative ending.
Rob: Crowd-sourced endings are a slippery slope.
Robin: We have The Guppies all cued up.
Robin: We really need to paint this office.
Rob: I've seen way worse, really. I like the color.
Margaret: I can't see any color.
Rob: Look right there, behind the radiator.
Robin: But don't we deserve a fresher look?
Margaret: It wouldn't kill us to jazz it up.
Rob: I AM exhausted after 10 posts. A little paint? New carpet?
Margaret: And we did get the furniture at the dump.
Rob: I love this couch. No one's touching it.
Robin: And we're going to be Big Time bloggers. No one will miss us if we miss one post.
Margaret: Isn't this is Tax-free weekend in Massachusetts?
Rob: Come on. Let's go.
