The Daver: “Hello?”
Aunt Becky: “I’m leaving you.”
The Daver: “Oh yeah?”
Aunt Becky: “Yup! I’m forming an all-girls disco band and we’re touring the country.”
The Daver: “Okay.”
Aunt Becky: “Wait, you’re not upset?”
The Daver: “You’ve got to follow your dreams, man. Who is going to be in the band?”
Aunt Becky (gestures to empty room): “Oh, you know…TWITTER.”
The Daver: “That’s a big band. What are you going to do?”
Aunt Becky: “Wear roller skates and play the triangle. It’s DISCO. And it’s making a comeback. I CAN FEEL IT.”
The Daver: “Okay.”
Aunt Becky: “Oh, and I need one of those voice thingies. So I can actually sing. What are they called?”
The Daver: “A vocoder?”
Aunt Becky (happily): “YES! I need one. Can you get me one of those?”
The Daver: “Okay. I’ll pick up Chinese food for dinner?”
Aunt Becky: “Sure. See you soon! Before I’m gone with my all girls Twitter disco band. I’ve got to go order some more go-go boots!”
The Daver (laughs) “Bye!”
(both parties hang up)
Because I am in the process of forming My Empire, which means I’m trying to think of more projects, I’ve come up with the idea of a couple of community-based forums for us. The ROYAL “us.” Problem is, I’m not sure exactly what we should be about.
I’ve had a bunch of people suggest that I cobble (and by “I” I mean “The Daver”) together a site where we could go to put together weight loss articles and articles about self-improvement and Getting The Band Back Together (it wouldn’t be like a boring site or anything) where we could cheer each other on.
I think this could work. I also think there are other things we could do and I’m eagerly thinking of them, but my brain is small and yours, well, is not, so this is the part of the post where I ask for your input. What do you think? Honestly. I’m open to any ideas, providing they’re feasible and full of The Awesome. I love the idea of a community-based site.
