National Terrible Unfinished Novel-Writing Month: Day 16

Damn. My new gun can’t arrive soon enough.

“Did I just hear you say ‘Damn! My new gun can’t arrive soon enough!’?”

Oops. I was like 99% sure that I’d only thought that.

“Sorry, officer,” I said, and then I handed over my license and registration as he’d asked.

My apology was quite sincere. Plus, I was wearing those special hypno-contact-lenses I bought offa eBay and I was really, really concentrating on the phrase “Please don’t pull me from my car and tase me to the ground and make fun of my Gavin McLeod air freshener.” So I don’t know what the hell went wrong. Maybe I had the left lens in the right eye and the right one in the left or something.

I’m looking forward to continuing work on my NaTeUnNoWriMo Novel, but without a gun, what can you do?

I guess for the next few days I’ll just kill time by looking at YouTube videos until I find one that I can rip off for a short story. You know…like the writers at The New Yorker do.

  1. “Did I just hear you say ‘Damn! My new gun can’t arrive soon enough!’?”

    Okay, now, think about this: You know how psychotic people are sometimes walking down the street talking to themselves? Apparently, they see/believe that there is someone next to them, participating in their conversation.The next time you are walking down the street, or sitting on a bench, whatever, with a friend, ask yourself, “Is this person really here, or am I talking to myself?”

  2. I know this is off topic, but I just wanted to say I’m glad to hear your mother is doing fine, and to say that my thoughts and well wishes go out to you and her. Hopfully she’ll recover completely from the surgery as soon as humanly possible.

  3. Oh my goodness! Andy, I’m sorry – I didn’t know your mom was having surgery. She will be in my prayers. Here I was being my crazy self, and wonder where you were these past many days. I hope everything will be ok soon and you have a good holiday. (ps – thank you Jason Z for the post)

  4. Myra: I had no idea either until Leo mentioned it off hand on Macbreak Weekly as the reason why Andy wasn’t on the show this week so don’t feel bad for not knowing. I get the feeling Andy is keeping to himself and not wanting to bother others with the details of his life. It’s what I would have done. Still, I just wanted to send my heart out to him and his family.

  5. Jason: Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t listened to the MBW podcast yet from last weekend but I was in the Tech Guy chatroom on Sunday and Leo was unsure about who was going to be on MBW. Many of us were asking for Andy, but Leo didn’t explain why Andy wouldn’t be able to be on the show.

    Thanks again for letting me know.

    Andy – when you read this we want you to know —- we miss you!
