Engagement and Procrastination, the faceoff

Focus today’s post on the contrast between two things. The twist? Write the post in the form of a dialogue.

“All right, you know that we should be writing something right now, don’t you?”

(unintelligible grunt)

“Aw come on, we like doing this stuff, you’ve said so a dozen times, and even when we’re not actively doing any writing, we’re thinking about it.”

“Don’t wanna.”

“What does that mean, why don’t we want to write for a bit tonight?”


“Hmm. Well, that’s a fair point, it’s been a long time since I ate. Let me fix a little something just to take the edge off.” <yum!> “There, tummy rumble has been suppressed with snackage, can we start now?”

“Nuh uh.”

“Oh come on, what’s wrong now?”


“I suppose that’s a fair point, it has been a pretty long day… Hey! Are you just trying to lazy your way out of this? Not going to let you do that; we need to get started on this assignment, it’s good for us; learning and practicing and stuff.”


“No, now come on, you know it’s not even bed time yet. What the hell else are you gonna do, couch potato?”


“No, we’ve wasted enough of our life leaving a dent in the couch, get our fanny perpendicular…how do you spell ‘perpendicular?’ again…oh yeah, there it goes–stop stalling and write!”


“Well why not, for heaven’s sakes?”


“Oh. Yeah, I guess we are. Did you do the logo-thing and all the category and tags and whatnot? Facebooky share thang?”


“Oh for….never mind, I’ll do them myself. Loser!”

(unintelligible grunt)
