SPAL: Today is What’s your nosh Tuesday.
HB: But we’re supposed to get some nosh in return for this, guys. We like cheese. We’d like to try some chocolate. And we lover watermelon.
SPAL:***looks out to the blogosphere*** Please ignore my brother. He’s stupid and rude.
HB: Well, you’re a pansy, pansy-boy.
SPAL: Anyway, we’ve got one of Mummsy’s critters today. Mummsy calls her the Grammar Angel from her writing group.
SPAL: Is that all you ever think about?
SPAL: Just behave. I see her coming.
SPAL: The pretty blonde lady.
HB: She is purdy. Can I hug her leg?
SPAL: That’s not what you do though. You’re a humper. Don’t you dare! ***he looks up*** Please nice people welcome Janet Rockey.
HB: ***hugs her leg*** We’re very happy to see you.
SPAL: ***removes HB from her leg*** I apologize, Miss Janet. ***he looks at HB***Do you want timeout?
HB: ***he frowns and puts his tail between his legs***
SPAL: ***he turns and faces Miss Janet*** I’m so sorry. This is supposed to be a professional interview. Let us proceed. Do tell us what you like to snack on when you're writing? Tell me why you like it.
JR: I don't nosh while I'm writing because I don't want sticky, greasy, and/or orange computer keys from the Cheetos (cheese that goes crunch!).
HB: ***gasps*** No treats. No cookies. No chocolate. No nosh?!
SPAL: Every one is different.
JR: I find eating a distraction.
HB: OMG! I can’t believe this. Absolutely, no nosh!
SPAL: ***shh*** Sorry again, Miss Janet. Just ignore him. He’s got food issues if you haven’t figured that out. So please tell me, do you have any published books out there?
SPAL: That is wonderful. What are they?
JR: They are all anthologies.
