My microwave was busy.

February 8, 2011

They can't all be winners.

Act 1

Scene: A humble dining room, rather cluttered. A husband and wife are sitting, each at their own computers. It is mid-evening. They have recently eaten dinner – meatloaf with a failed noodle side dish.

Wife: I have nothing to post about. Nothing.

Husband: What about that one picture you took?

Wife: That’s a headline, not a story.

Husband: They can’t all be winners. (goes back to ignoring her)

End scene

    Well, that sounds like a scene from a Bronte novel.


    • Brad Said on:

      I don’t think I would want to read any Bronte.


    • Lauren Said on:

      Ha! Wuthering Heights, right? I am ashamed to admit I’ve never read it, and the only thing I know about it is this. (It’s not the Ukulele Orchestra’s best work. This is, in my opinion.)

        Oh Lauren Sommerer, you are in so much trouble. I thought you had lost the plot then I lost an hour of my life you tubing all their songs.
        Loved it. Im in the UK in April, they had better be touring.
        And the bit where he handed the guy the tissues, genius!!

    I had frozen butter, and wanted to make some sort of cheesy-angel-hair-pasta thing and it didn’t go well.


  3. Peggy Said on:

    Frozen butter? Butter freezes? I never knew.

    And I’ve never read Wuthering Heights either. There’s a lot of classics I’ve never read & quite a few old classic movies I haven’t seen either.

    But I can’t wait for this classic Bronte (Charlotte) remake to come out!
