After all this Kickstarter excitement settled down, I was finally able to sit down with Velma and get the whole blogging process back on track. After asking her to be kind enough to write a letter a week to our supporters she launched right into it.
VELMA: So I think I’m going to start doing the lobbing?
JUSTIN: The blogging?
VELMA: Sure. Whatever.
JUSTIN: How’re you going to do that? You hate the computer.
VELMA: I’m getting used to it and you seem to be too busy.
JUSTIN: What about Nick?
VELMA: Who my assistant? The one who’s supposed to assist me in anything I ask him to assist me in?
JUSTIN: Yeah him. He loved taking over my blogging duties when I came up short.
VELMA: He’s being a priss. He says he’s too busy.
JUSTIN: Well then—
VELMA: Which, in all fairness, he is. I’m workin’ him to the bone.
JUSTIN: Poor thing.
VELMA: He reminds me of it every morning. I told him to start drinking coffee and he’d be a helluva lot happier.
JUSTIN: Amen to that.
VELMA: Yeah. So I’m going to give it a go. Just furnish me with the address and by the end of the week I’ll be up and runnin’ sweetheart.
JUSTIN: Are you sure about this?
VELMA: What? This got you nervous? Come on, how many 94 year old lobbers can there be out there?
JUSTIN: You might be the only one.
VELMA: Then God bless me.
JUSTIN: Perhaps God should bless all of us.
VELMA: You’re such a smartass sometimes.
JUSTIN: Just to you, Velma.
VELMA: That’s why I like you so much.
So Velma’s going to try it out. I think she intends to pick up where I left off, but who knows. Maybe she’ll shake things up a bit.
