To Trish's Editor...

Dear Trish's Editor,

This is just a quick note to apologize for the fact that Trish does not have her manuscript with her in class today as the dog ate it.

Trish is very upset about this, particularly as she told me she had just written a very wonderful scene where someone called Gabe was hit by a runaway Monster Bus and apparently squooshed like a big bug. Aren't children's imaginations wonderful no matter what age?

She will re-do the work if it doesn't reappear through the dog in natural due course.

Yours sincerely,
Trish's Mum

Keep a close eye on that dog, Trish!

ROTFLMAO

You can't help it if the dog ate it. They do that kind of thing!

Trish said...

See!!!????

Soooooooo not my fault!!!!

And the fact it was inside the laptop doesn't bode well for poor woofie...

Dear Trish's mum....

I wish I had a mum like you to make excuses for m....er, to cover my as...er, you know what I mean.

Trish said...

Donna! I'm shocked you could even THINK such a thing.. :0

Janet said...

...then Woofie had a heart attack and you have to stay with him while he has surgery?

Trish said...

Well Janet - so far he has had DREADFUL stomach cramps...

Mind you - we've got the memory stick back...

Dear Trish's dog

I get blamed like that, too. But my human claims I steal her chocolate stash rather than her books. (And at least I don't eat her advance cheques, unlike her predecessor.)

My reliable source (aka my human's son) says memory sticks survive practically anything, so I hope you won't get into too much trouble.

And when Trish has finished her book (like my human just has) she will forgive you anything and share chocolate...

love
Byron

It might be a rainy monday, but now I'm laughing...

Nice work Trish!!

Jennie Adams said...

Hmm. For some reason I get the impression Trish and Gabe might not have been getting on all that well before the bus incident. Don't know what makes me think that.

I'm told memory sticks will survive a trip through the washing machine.

It's cold and rainy here, too.

Thanks for the smile, Trish.

Trish said...

Jennie - through a washing machine?????

Methinks perchance there may be a story behind that?! Though I do feel the woofie-stomach-acid-and-don't-go-there-test is as stringent a test as can be done...

All members of the Friends Of Woofie Support Group will be glad to hear he's recovering beautifully btw.

Heard a quip this morning that made me think of this post....

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.

Inside of a dog...it's too dark to read.

*snert*

Janet said...

LOL! I like that quip, Donna. Maybe Woofie will start up his own blog called Inside Of A Dog. If Miss Snark's KY can have his own blog...

Trish said...

Oh yeah, that's right - you two just go right ahead and put ideas in his furry little head!

And as for it being too dark to read... lemme tell you - at the time he swallowed it - it was maybe just as well it was that dark...

Jennie Adams said...

Trish, a friend's daughter washed her memory stick and only found it after she pulled the pair of jeans in off the clothes line at the end of the day. All was fine.

I've lost one of mine. Gives one a very ill feeling, actually.
