Common Sense: Weeeeeeeell well well. Look at you.

Me: Moi?

CS: Little Miss Fancypants.

Me: I'm SURE I have no idea what you are implying. 

CS: You sure treat unexpected happy news in an interesting way.

Me: Huh? OH. You mean all the crying.

CS: Of course I mean all the crying. "Look at me, boo hoo, people are reading the blog, wah wah wah"

Me: You know, that was awfully mean.

CS: That's why I'm your common sense, buster. I keep you grounded. 

Me: You keep me GROUCHY. See how you are. So full of hate.

CS: Just keeping things in perspective. So you have new readers. You gonna start writing like a grownup?

Me: Nope.

CS: You gonna stop telling the entire world about your ass hanging out of your jeans, and falling down all the time, and writing in the guise of the cats?

Me: Nope.

CS: So things are going to be status quo around here, eh? The same stuff? Even the really embarrassing and/or silly stuff?

Me: Yooooooooooooou betcha.

CS: Hope you liked those new followers, cause there's going to be a mass exodus.

Me: I gotta be meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

CS: Don't try to sing.

Me: *croaking* I gotta be meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

CS: Oh my god, stop.

Me: Nope, I won't. You're being vair, vair mean to me today, and I am actually feeling pretty good about myself and not psychotically depressed at all, and you're SHITTING in my proverbial PUNCHBOWL. So shut up. Nyah.

CS: It's almost as if you have self-esteem.

Me: Almost.

CS: Well I don't know how to respond to that. That's something quite new.

Me: I'm gonna go now. You're a mean mean voice in my head, and I'm through talking with you today.


Me: What?

CS: You going out to smoke?

Me: Yep.

CS: Well for the love of Zeus's undercrackers, at LEAST put shoes on. I give up on you wearing pajamas all day, but you're BAREFOOT and it's FEBRUARY. I'm just trying to do my job here.

Me: Fine, I will put on shoes. I will put on THE PINK SHOES OF SHAME.

CS: Which will go delightfully with your jimjams. I do hope all your neighbors are around to see this.

Me: *bellowing* I gotta be meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

CS: I'm putting an ad on Craigslist. I need a new gig.

I did take the feather headdress off.

(No I didn't.)

  1. It’s actually the silly and embarrassing stuff that people like. Or, anything that gives them the sense that they’re reading something written by an actual human being they can relate to … and that means someone who doesn’t pretend to be flawless.
    Although there’s nothing embarrassing about matching your shoes to your feathered headdress. I mean, what, you’re going to clash them?
