Me & My Muse – Day 32: Formatting Issues

Before I do anymore of these, I think it’s time that I talk about the format.

No! Not that format!  What I’m talking about is the format for Me & My Muse.  While I love the variety of topics that I talk about, the problem is with the Muse.  I mean, I do want some wit involved.  Kind of like a duo akin to Abbott and Costello.  A straight guy and a character that is always unstable.  My Muse is my attempt to create that character.  She can be right on at times, but most of the time, she’s just annoying.  Like a sauntering five-year old that thinks all of her jokes are funny.  And furthermore, I think her antics can be stupid, and are starting to get old.  And her tantrums have to stop.  I want balance with my supposedly “funny” and unstable character, but she’s way too unbalanced….


Muse:  I LOVE this format!  It’s amazing!

What are you talking about?  It’s a trainwreck and you know it.

Muse:  Trains?  Where?  I don’t see any trains.

Let me translate.  The format is terrible.  It’s AWFUL.

Muse:  No it’s not!  I love it!  Besides, you should not have any excuses.  You made me this way..

I made you a certain way, and then you went and changed your behavior.

Muse:  Change my behavior?  When?

I’m talking about your childish behavior.

Muse:  Oh that.  Tee hee!  It’s just something I picked up….

From where?  Where do you pick up something like that?

Muse:  I’m not telling.  It’s a secret.  Tee hee!

Why don’t you tell me?  I’m the one that you can trust the most.

Muse:  I’m not telling! I’m not telling! I’m not telling! I’m not telling!  I’m not tell.

Enough!  This is what I’m talking about.  You are the ratings killer for this blog.

Muse:  Oh really?  Do you know how many people are reading this?  And have they ever left a comment on any of these posts?  If they really hated it, they would tell you, wouldn’t they?

Maybe.  I wonder if they know how to leave a comment.  If it’s your first time leaving a comment, it will have you register as well.

Muse:  So tell me.  Have you ever seen any comments?

No I haven’t.

Muse:  Then I can be as silly and stupid as I want to be!  And I will, so NYAH!

People.  Please let me know if you want her to stop.  I have ways of making her stop.  Believe me….

Muse:  What is that supposed to mean?

Oh.  I think you know.

Muse:  A spanking?  I don’t want a spanking!  Please don’t spank me!  I’ve been a good girl!

Um, woman?

Muse:  Whatever!  Adults are boring!  They never do anything fun!  They’re always serious all the time.  They miss out on everything….

Really?  What about this morning?  I was all serious picking all those blueberries, wasn’t I?

Muse:  Did you say blueberries?

Yes.  I did.  Now….

Muse:  I LOVE BLUEBERRIES!  Where are they? Where are they?  I want some!

They’re in the kitchen.

Muse:  Oh thanks!  Gonna get me some blueberries.  WHOO-HOO!

Don’t eat them all.

Muse:  *BURP*  I just did!  Do you have any more?

Those are all I got!  You owe me a ton of blueberries.  Now go fetch them, blueberry girl!

Muse:  Be right back.  Tee hee!


There.  That will keep her busy for a while.

From what you heard, yes.  I went blueberry picking this morning with my brother and mother.  We picked a total of 19 pounds of blueberries, which my Muse will have to REPLACE!  Anyway, the high today is going to be 80 degrees.  The silver lining already happened.  All those blueberries?  Hello?

To all of you who desire a new format for this series and love blueberries as much as I do, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  There.  1 ton of blueberries.  How am I going to get all of these back?
