I’d forgotten…

…how much fun I had with my heroes. This is a conversation I shared June 4, 2014. Some of the heroes are from books currently unpublished and others are from my Holiday, USA series:

My heroes found me on FB…

Patrick: Cheer up, Brent.
Brent: Is she back, yet?
Leo: Our Lady returned a day or two ago.
Brent: Then it’s true.
Richard: What truth is so horrible you bear the appearance of one who’s lost his best friend?
Brent: She’s forgotten me.
Ian: Rubbish.
Leo: She forgets no one.
Benjamin: Unfortunately.
Brent: Easy for you to say.
Benjamin: Do tell.
Brent: Your publish date is set and on schedule.
Leo: Preening is unseemly.
Benjamin: I am not preening.
Fitzgerald: You are, but it is not the concern of the moment.
Ian: Sorrows shared are halved, and all that.
Benjamin: I don’t know why you’re complaining. You’ll be published before me.
Brent: I was supposed to be published last March. March!
Dusty: Life happens.
Jordan: A series of unfortunately events.
Richard: Best laid plans of mice and men.
Brent: Murphy’s Law.
Fitzgerald: What is this Murphy’s Law?
Leo: Ask Jack. He knows everything.
Jack: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong at the worst possible moment.
Jordan: O’Toole’s Corollary declares Murphy was an optimist.
Brent: Not helping, guys.
Leo: Never give up hope.
Jack: Our Lady’s world has undergone a number of upheavals, but it is settling.
Leo: Stand strong, gentleman.
Jack: Indeed. It’s the least we may do.
Patrick: Buckle up, Buttercup. We’re in for a bumpy ride.
Benjamin: Who is this Buttercup?
Jack: It’s a figure of speech.
Benjamin: It’s ridiculous.
Jack: It made you smile. It even made Brent smile.
Dusty: Mission accomplished.
