BAGMAN, proudly sporting a T-Shirt that reads: "I love PINK," and shouting: "I want to take the pictures!!! Pink!! Pink!! Show me the pink!!"
I'm a bit lost but concerned because Bagman can be dangerously inappropriate at times. I look over at Butler for an explanation.
BUTLER (whispering in my ear so that my readers can't hear and won't be offended): "From what little research I did before I succumbed to disgust, the word 'pink' in some circles has gained a rather pornographic connotation. It is sad but this delicate, innocent, colorful word has been usurped to refer to...well...I'd rather not say."
BAGMAN: "Usurp!! Usurp!! Let's post pictures of me usurping pink!"
Understanding pours over me like a cold rain and I turn to Bagman authoritatively, "Not a chance!"
BAGMAN (deflated but glaring): "You're turning into a $%&##ing old wimp! I'll bet you don't even remember when we were twenty!"
"As seldom as possible," I reply, "And never when blogging. This is a G-rated blog and it's going to stay that way. Take your T-shirt and sit in the corner."
I don't have much but I sit down at the computer to post my blog. It is slow going because I have to keep ducking various sex toys that Bagman is hurling at me.

(Well, not a Cadillac, and not really too pink either)
I told you that I didn't have much this week.

BUTLER: "Excuse me for interrupting, but I don't see how this fits with the theme of pink."
"Look closely. The apple is definitely not red."
BUTLER: "You really are grasping for straws in this shoot."
BAGMAN (shouting from the corner while throwing another obscene artifact that I can't identify, fortunately): "YES! Now you're getting it! Pink the color of love!!"
BUTLER (Throwing back whatever it was that Bagman threw): "Lizard Brain!"
Since that is all I have, I close the computer and make my escape from the studio. Just before I close the door, I am slapped on the back of the head by a deflated inflatable sex doll. Sometimes I don't know how I put up with these guys!
