The Death of Sponge
| "The Death of Sponge?"|
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"Oh, that's just temporary. I just threw a title up for the
moment. Don't worry, a relevant one is in the mail. FedEx
should have it here by noon tomorrow."
"Darlene, I didn't wait 111 billion years for my personal frwoa to
reboot itself to have it re-named 'The Death of Sponge.' "
"Well, that's what it says."
"Is this a joke?"
"Seriously. Now, you have anything better to do besides complain
that a parallel frwoa universe named 'Twisty Twirly Nonsense Ostrich
Random' isn't being formatted to meet your organizational
standards? My desk skills are much better suited to organizing
files and spreadsheets for frwoa univi whose names don't contain the
words 'nonsense', 'ostrich', and 'random.' In fact, from my own
perfectly good ttangle, I'd say that I've done a wonderful job of
adhering to TTnor's random nonsense etiquette by indefinitely
procrastining an official title for your frwoa with the temporary name
'The Death of Sponge.' 'The Death of Sponge' is a perfectly good
name for you to loathe, and at the least will serve as a prime source
of initial conflict; one that will thrust your readers into an
extacy-laced anticipation of how you'll handle your intense resentment
of the matter. How much will your crushed ego at being bullied
around by a busy secretary motivate you? How great will your
ensuing rath be? Will it motivate you to move
mountains, or will it be revealed you're ADHD enough to simply forget
what it even was a few moments from now? When the new title
arrives, you shall get your wish, though it's probably for the
worst. In any case, until tomorrow morning, 'The Death of Sponge'
will have to do."
"No. Now go bugger off, Jumper, I have better things to do
than appease the narcissistic nitpicking of a nonsensical disgruntled
"You no fun."
