(back to the office of the writer)
Ramona. My secretary, ooops excuse me, I mean administrative assistant will like that I used her name in this story. I hope she at least left some
coffee on before she skipped out on me. YES! Coffee.....it's muddy but it's hot. What's with all the political correctness going on today. God
it gets tiring.....for instance: Ramona is Latin American (not a Spic), she is weight challenged (not a cow) and she has hygeine issues (she smells).
Why do I even need her? I guess without her, it would be just me and who would I have to aggravate besides myself?
I once needed her when I was busy. When I was writing two novels a year and still managing to write magazine articles and short stories. The phone
used to ring off the hook here. Now.......
The reality of this situation is, I can't write anymore. It's gone. I have made some money over the years, even had one of my stories made into a
movie. A BAD movie, but a movie. The wife left what seems like an awful long time ago and we had no kids.....so it's just me. Me and my ability to
do nothing....oh, and Ramona, the Latin-American, weight and hygeine challenged administrative assistant.
Two guys in a desert? It's been done. Thelma and Louise! Okay...that's two gals in the desert, but they were lesbians, so they were almost men,
right? But seriously, guys in the desert, flashing lights, creepy feelings....blah blah blah. This needs to be different, otherwise I'm just
spinning my wheels like I've been doing for the past five years or so.
(goes to the mini refridgerator and grabs a Miller High Life.....screws off the cap and takes a big pull.....drinks half the beer) Ahhhh.....the
champagne of beers! I KNOW! I need to go out in the desert and write this story. I need to be there. I need to feel what my characters are
feeling. Oh hell, I just need to get out of this depressing office.
(Goes over to the desk in the front office, grabs a piece of paper and starts writing)
You're officially fired. I will pay you until the end of the month. Steal whatever you want on your way out and please make sure you lock up
