View Full Version : Congrats muffled on 50th, threats issued

12-18-2015, 11:33 PM
“Stop the noise and stow the fireworks, or I’ll call the gendarmeria pontifica.” That was the landlady at the front door, heavily armed with a flyswatter in her left--the nondominant hand. She was prepared.

“Rosaria, I’m celebrating my 50th.”

“I don’t give a damn. Your 50th? You’re at least 72.”

“No, not that, my 50th post on the internationally known AW.”

“Bovine vaccinations are best applied during the autumn equinox,” I continued, going for the oral feel of the spoken version of my 51st. I imagined Sir Laurence Olivier doing the honors posthumously.

“Writers, strange people,” Rosaria grumbled, coming in and accepting the quarter glass of tequila offered by Tango. She wasn't stupid, she'd left her right hand empty for times like these.

Happy 50th post, well done! Here's to the next 5000.

Here's your answer, Kylabelle: "...but mine is a lion!"

Congrats. You can't muffle me!

Wait a minute, wait a minute! This is MY post. You old people, with your 150,000 posts always congratulating and talking to each other! Mac, put a muzzle on these people. Tell them it's time for the kiddies to have their say.

Oh, I forgot. Mac has 2,432,123 posts and will probably side with them. Oh well, c'est la vie. (say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.--Chuck Berry.)

Hah. Mac has a fraction of the posts some of these folks have. :)

But when Mac speaks, it's a lion. Right?

Lookie there, I just got me another post.

Maryn, smug

If I can reach 20-30k posts. At an average of thirty words, that is nine novels? I think from now I will somehow arrange my replies so that they somehow fit into a new novel.

67,000+ posts is a lot of time avoiding writing. Spent...writing.

Indeed it is... and yet here I am procrastinating writing... and well writing... Even if each post was just one word, if you had 67,000 that really would be a novel. Agrees with the above, let's make our posts into a novel! Although I still have quite a ways to go...

LOL! I liked your story (post), Cicak. It had an opening, a middle, and an end, and was actually an enjoyable read. You should be a writer. :)

Shoot! It's overwhelming just thinking about 50 and trying to keep from getting them deleted. hahaha

Just a reminder to check the dates on posts when you respond, incase it's an old thread.

This thread was started in in 2015; it was last alive in 2016.
