BAGMAN: "I'm right over here, Mark!! Open your eyes! Let's have a Friday Shootout Party."
Didn't I just say that, in addition to having no good ideas, I also didn't have time.
BAGMAN: "You give up too easy. Besides, you have some photographs."
But I hate to just put them in without some kind of zippy caption. But Barclay is due in anytime and Karen left me a short list about watering the plants and I don't have time to...
BUTLER: "Calm down, Baggie, old chap. Don't you see what Mark is doing? He is cleverly exploiting his 'Pattern' of self-depreciation and creative whining."
Oh. Was that what I was doing? Maybe that is a pattern. I do tend to whine and apologise a lot. So I guess I'll shut up and leave Bagman sitting with a confused expression on his face and post the pictures.
Boy, am I tired now!
BAGMAN: "Hooray! At least you put in one pun!"
BUTLER: "Tread lightly, Baggie. Mark isn't really with it this morning."
Bagman giggles at the fact that strait-laced Butler actually made a pun himself. I decide to push the post button and go look at other people's posts while I wait for Barclay to show up.
