As some of you may know, last December Mr. Fish was generous enough to assume blogging responsibilities seeing that I was bogged down in lettering the graphic novel. Not soon after both Mr. Fish and Velma disappeared for 8 months. No word from either of them. No one was returning phone calls and Mr. Fish stopped emailing and blogging.
I naturally assumed the worst.
Then this morning my phone rang (at a very early hour mind you).
VELMA (Very Loud): SWEETHEART!!
JUSTIN: Who is this?
VELMA: It's Velma, hon.
JUSTIN: Jesus, Velma, I thought you-
VELMA: Kicked it. Yeah. A couple of people thought so. No, Nicky and I were off for awhile.
JUSTIN: I'm assuming you can't say where?
VELMA: Of course not. It's not that interesting anyway.
JUSTIN: I'm starting to think you work for the government.
VELMA: I'm starting to think you don't work at all.
VELMA: I mean, nothing. Not a single post since December.
JUSTIN: Nick told me he had it covered. Actually he told the readers. I didn't even get a head's-up.
VELMA: Ah, whatever. I know you and Courtney have been busy with the graphics novel.
VELMA: WHAT? Oh. Right. Graphic.... Well, I've been thinking about some things.
JUSTIN: Oh yeah.
VELMA: I think we need to make some changes.
JUSTIN: To what?
VELMA: To this blog thing. We might've been going at it all wrong.
JUSTIN: I'm not sure there's a right or wrong way to do it, Velma.
VELMA: I do. Let's talk about it.
VELMA: Can you meet up with me tomorrow in my office?
JUSTIN: Actually I'm not in the city right now.
VELMA: Well where the hell are ya?
JUSTIN: Martha's Vineyard.
VELMA: Oh I see. Must be nice.
JUSTIN: It is.
VELMA: Well, when do you get back in?
JUSTIN: Can we meet the beginning of next week. Say Tuesday.
VELMA: GREAT!! Come over my way, noonish. Make ya a tuna sandwich.
JUSTIN: Yummy. See ya then.
VELMA: Right. Bye now.
I guess we're back in business.
