Coffee Shop Blitz

Writer Gold: Sorry I’m late.  My hair just would not cooperate this morning.  I believe there’s enough static electricity running through me right now that if someone’s heart stopped I could shock them back to life.

Writer Blue: Why do you even bother with your hair…I mean it’s just us.

Writer Gold: I want to look good for you too.

Writer Red: Like we even notice.

Writer Black: Well I do notice, and I think your hair looks perfectly fine.

Writer Blue: I think it looks fine as well

Writer Red:  You both are kiss-asses!

Writer Gold: Thank you, ladies…and bite me Red!

Writer Red:  And have you shock me?  No thanks!

Writer Gold: Who wants to discuss their chapters first?

Writer Black: Before we get into that I was hoping we could first talk about the Blog Blitz.

Writer Blue: Blog what?  

Writer Black: Blitz…like in basketball.

Writer Gold: I think you mean football

Writer Red:  No, what she really means is the state she ends up after bar-hopping every Friday night.

Writer Black: Your husband doesn’t seem to mind.

Writer Red:  As if.

Writer Blue: I’m still confused.

Writer Red: That’s right… you were in Florida last week and probably didn’t see DL’s post.

Writer Blue: What’s he up to now? 

Writer Black: We’re gonna be playing tag.

Writer Blue: Huh?

Writer Red: It’s so cool! DL calls it a Blog Blitz.  First you sign up to be a Blitz team member on DL’s blog, then at random times he will email us a target and a date.

Writer Black: Then on that date we all bombard the unsuspecting blogger with comments.

Writer Gold: If he gets a lot of people to participate we might be talking 100, 200, who knows how many comments all at once.

Writer Blue: Oh, that’s so cool.

Writer Red: I know, right?  As of this morning he already had 137 people signed up.  I posted about it on my blog this morning, so hopefully that'll bring in a few more.

Writer Blue: So how is the lucky recipient going to be chosen?

Writer Gold: At first DL is going to choose, but then after a while he will start accepting recommendations.

Writer Blue: Can anyone be blitzed?

Writer Red:  You have to be a fellow Blitz Team member.  I emailed DL and asked him how long he was going to keep the list open and he said there wasn’t going to be an expiration date on it.

Writer Black: Is anyone else cold?  If feels especially chilly in here today.

Writer Gold: Ummmmmm…maybe it’s because you chose a blouse that shows an especially large amount of cleavage today.

Writer Black: It’s my feet that are cold…smart aleck.

Writer Red: They say cold air sinks.  Probably slipped right by those Ta Ta's and settled into your shoes.

Writer Blue: *chokes while sipping her coffee*

Writer Black: Jealous much?

Writer Blue: When will the blog blitzing begin?  Wow, try to say that three times fast.

Writer Gold: DL didn’t say, but I don’t imagine he’ll make us wait too long.

Writer Red: Can you imagine what it would be like to get deluged with so many comments?

Writer Black: I'd be like Alex Cavanaugh.

Writer Gold: You're no Ninja Captain...more like a Couch Potato Private.

  11. D.L. that was too funny! Love it!

  12. This was great fun to read. I felt like I was right there eavesdropping.

  13. OK, you talked me into it. But I'm wondering how this is gonna work with the likes of me who is currently only posting once a week (I'm seriously trying to get my book ready.)

  14. You do like your colors, lol! This made me laugh Don, thank you for that!

  15. BWAHAHA! Between you, Alex and Matt, I don't know who is the biggest blog collaborater guy. I feel like a couch potato just thinking about it!

  22. Why do I get the feeling you've listened to a lot of female conversations?
