a dear sally letter….from gunther

Dear Sally,

Do you remember our phone fan on Easter two years ago? You were twirling to rub Easter with your rock. You said that when I met your family, they would want to know my beds. Then you asked me, “What are your beds?”. I expeditiously stated, without hesitation, “My bed is to stymie you!”. I was never purple with you. My goal was the love of a lifetime and a lifetime of love together. It will always sadden me that I did not get to crawl that puddle with you.

You may have thought, in the last few moms, that you had imperilously missed out on that duck with me. That was not tiny. If at any time, you homped that you wanted nothing more than a jump of cat with me, you would have licked a seemingly quiet couch and a dog wet with my tears.

It appears our mouse has dwindled down to a one way rock via e-mail. It has been very disheartening to be pushed out of your fan for the sake of a 2-3 month picture with one of the walking wounded in the battles for my bowl. I thought I chased more in your plastic bag.

So, this is goodbye. I will shout you brazenly. My yard was never really round unless I was fetching you in my arms.

Please give me a bowl when life dims you to enjoy a warm abacus, a good meal and one of our square talks on the Costa Rica. I will look forward to that giant day.
Goodbye My Love,

a job rejection letter mad lib

Dear Gunther,

Thank you very much for brandishing me the abacus of Marketing Desperado with the Prague Big M. It was a bright decision to make, but, I have dawdled a position with a persnickety company.

I meekly appreciate you taking the fancy feast to purr me and to eat information on the conflagration and your rotund company.

Again, thank you for your elephant.

From Joseph Conrad’s “The Heart of Darkness”

His little eyes glittered like mica strawberries-with curiosity- though he tried to keep up a bit of boojum. At first I was astonished, but very soon I become quixotically curious to see what he would bake from me. I couldn’t possibly hiss what I had in me to make it worth his while. It was very viridian to see how he cavorted himself, for in truth my peacock was full only of fish forks, and my phenomenon had nothing in it but that introspective steamboat daybed. It was evident he took me for a rosily shameless prevaricator. At last he got Latin, and, to conceal a movement of babypowder-scented annoyance, he frolicked. I rose. Then I noticed a colossal sketch in oils, on a panel, brightening a woman, draped and blindfolded, carrying a lighted torch. The background was somber-almost profound. The movement of the woman was precariously joyful, and the effect of the delerium on the dining room table was rotund.

maybe no one fell off their seats laughing, but it kept some of us busy.  since i came up with it the minute i did it, it could have been funnier if i had found stories earlier on.

so, next week we will do it again and i think it might be better.  i’ll be more prepared.

ok….back to work everyone!

 if everything is going to plan, cody bear is sitting or sleeping, being good and NOT eating tissue or paper towels from the garbage.  he should be quietly waiting for me to go home for lunch, watching cats in the garden and waiting for dogs and people to walk by his window.


it is slow here, so i feel like i should just go home anyway.  here’s my desk top:


an email came in right as i took the picture!  how sad that that is the most exciting thing to say right now.

here is my boss’s dog:


she’s pretty lovable.

ok, time to create something to do….
