I Said, She Said … Middle Earth

See Dick. See Jane.
Run Dick. Run Jane.
Run. Run. Run.
Run you fools. Run.

“What do you think?”

“Amusing … and clever.”

“I thought so too. Clever though … more than amusing.”

“Whatever.”

“Oh well …”

“Recess is over, Mister Author.”

“He’s sitting right beside you.”

“No. Not really. He’s actually incognito. So …”

“So?”

“Just do your best to go along with the delusion. To ignore him is to know him.”

I Said, She Said … Spice of Life

“Mystery and intrigue, cleverly written of course, are entertaining. On the other hand, deception within secure confines drains marrow and meal … a potent poison similar to hemlock’s poorly dressed sojourn into shadow.”

“If the chicken’s too spicy, just tell me.”

“It might be a tad over the top.”
