John: Oh Oh. What’s wrong?
Shelley: I’ve been thinking.
John: Careful! That could be dangerous.
Shelley: Ha! Funny guy. Anyway, after two and a half years of blogging, I was thinking about what I should do next? Should I continue to blog or should I try something new? I don’t think I have a book in me. Besides according to Sean from “The Office Inbetweener” Amazon takes 60% off the cover price.
John: What a rip off.
Shelley: I know, right? And after watching “Honey Boo Boo,” reality TV is definitely out. That show was so awful I experienced sympathy hot flashes.
John: I didn’t know you could have those.
I’ll use material from my blog and become a comedian. I know I can’t jump right into it.
I realize it would be a steep learning curve. I’d have to prepare; take writing and acting courses. Nancy (my buddy from Uni.) actually took a comedian course. I’d search for one of those. I’d take one careful step at a time. But… John: But?
Shelley: But since watching Garet Webb and David Nickerson live, I’ve come to the conclusion that the life of a comedian is not for me. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Garet. Playing the guitar, as he joked, was very clever. And the energy of David was fabulous, until that stupid heckler started. Man, he tried everything to shut that jerk down like… “Thanks for helping me out.” and “Aeiouy? Why are you yelling a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y? Dude, you need to buy a consonant.” and “Your parents must be proud they raised such an irritating Red Neck.” and “Shut the F#$k Up! Let me get through my Chuck E. Cheese joke!” But eventually, he gave up with “F#$k it. I’m done.” and walked off the stage.
John: Shelley, what are you worried about? You taught for over thirty years. You’ve handled all kinds. You wouldn’t have had a problem handling that jerk.
Shelley: Got any other suggestions?
John: How about becoming a stripper?
