I'm SO not a harpy
I'm not here on accounta I'm over doin' Doug's site for him. Ya see, Doug had this great idea for a blog. He takes a word that Ambrose Bierce defined in the Devil's Dictionary, and he posts that word giving Ambrose's definition, and then Doug makes up his own definition and gives us that as an update for that word.
Easy as pie, right? Just a few little lines. After that, folks drop in and out all day and offer up a definition of their own, or a pun, or just a wise crack, or something like that. Some people are actually witty with their definitions. Folks like me just write some smart a$$ somethin' or other.
Then Doug comes back in and offers encouragement or discouragement on whatever someone has said about his word of the day.
Now, you'd think that this Doug boy could handle that little task, right? Heck, no! He's so lazy that he suckers some guest into doing his blog each and every Wednesday. I am not sh*ttin' you folks!
On Saturday he just makes up wild tales, and he doesn't do Sundays, so that means that Doug just has to write a few lines 4 days a week. That Doug! He oughta be an executive. 'Course maybe he is. Him and his little dog too.
The only reason I'm over there doing this for him is that he was such a harpy about it. He and my daughter dddragon. They nagged me into it. At first I thought maybe the choice of words that he gave me for today was meant to imply that I, myself, am a harpy. But, nah, not me. No one would ever think of me that way.
Wait! What are you still doin' here? I told you I'm not home! That's almost like breakin' and enterin'. You could get in trouble for that. Would I lie??? Run along home now. Or over to Doug's. Whatever.
