Dave's Blog Hijacked
Hey Everyone… Jazzy here. What, you were expecting someone else? Ha! That’s right, I’ve seized control because I can’t believe you’ve given that little Twerp his own Blog. “Twerp? I’m a Twerp? I thought she liked me. What’s a Twerp anyway?”-David
“You don’t need to know. Think of it as a term of endearment.”-Editor
I like him fine. Don’t take it personally, David, it’s the principle. It’s not like I don’t have anything to say. I’ve got lots to say. I’ve got thoughts and ideas. Are my views somehow less important than his? And really, what does he know anyway? He’s only been on the planet for a year and a half. He’s Baby David. I’ve been here for nine and a half years. I think everyone could benefit from my insights and infinite wisdom. And doesn’t seniority have any meaning around here?
“Is she almost done?”-David
Oh, I’m just getting started.
“But it’s MY Blog... MOMMY!!!”-David
“Yes, it’s still your Blog, David, but In the interest of peace and harmony in our household, I think it’s best we let her speak her mind.”-Editor (aka: Mom)
What’s the criteria for having your own Blog anyway? I could understand Wesley having one. He was old and wise. He knew stuff. It’s kinda like I’ve been passed up for a promotion or something. Now I understand what he musta felt like when I got to write my book.
All I used to hear was: “What about me?”-Wesley (Christmas 2009)
Speaking of my book. It’s been 6 years since I’ve heard from our publisher. I was getting good reviews. What about my book tour? I’m pretty sure I had a Blog a long time ago, too. What happened there? They forgot about Me, that’s what happened. Time to get back in the game.
Anyway, like I said, I like David alright. But from all accounts, I was a pretty cute puppy, too. I have pics of my brothers and sisters when we were all really little. And there were 10 of us.
“She was kinda cute, wasn’t she?”-David
I had a first trip to the beach. I remember my first snowfall. Not to mention my 1st Birthday bash at Nana & Papa’s. That was awesome! Do you know how many Birthday parties I’ve had? Our Editor said I don’t have room to show all of those.
“OUR Editor??? MOMMY!!!”-David
I have all kinds of cool toys too, and I like to dress up, not just cause we have to for Halloween. Check out my cool sunglasses.
I went to Training and graduated first in my class. I got my CGC when I was only 8 months old. David still doesn’t have his.
“What’s a CGC? I can do it.”- David
“You could definitely do it David. We’ll look into that for you.”-Editor
I’ve been on more Vacations and stayed in more fancy hotels than I can count.
“Again, sorry Jazzy. We don’t have room for all of them.”-Editor
“Sorry? You weren’t sorry when she took over the computer.”-David
And Day Trips to cool places? Oh yeah, I been lots of cool places. I’ve got tons of stories to tell.
“I can’t wait to go tons of places!”-David
“Don’t worry, David. There are many day trips and vacations in your future.”-Editor
I know how to swim and I love going to lakes and stuff, too.
“Oh my God! Is there no end to this? MOMMY!!!”-David
Okay, okay. I’ll wrap it up before Baby David blows a gasket. I don’t have to show off all my friends. Just one picture of me with my BFF Pebbles will do.
I guess that’s it for now.
Yeah, you can’t be the only one with a voice around here. We don’t live in a Dictatorship.
“Don’t worry, David. The Blog is all yours again next week. But I think she makes a good point, and we should consider some collaborative articles from the two of you in the future. You could be a great team! Think about it… Bernstein & Woodward. The Coen Brothers. Lennon & McCartney. Stein & Lee.
“Well, when you put it that way it doesn’t sound so bad. See you all next week.”-David
