Wilma Wednesday 3: Collaboration
I don’t want to get ahead of myself, so this isn’t exactly an announcement. But I think it’s okay to mention that Wilma and I have begun working on our book, The Wilma Dialogs.
“It’s exhausting.” Wilma yawns.
“It’s not so hard,” I say. “I like working with you.”
She doesn’t say anything.
“Don’t you like working together, Wilma?”
I’ve woken her up.
“Don’t you like working with me?”
She gazes at me through groggy eyes. “I like yelling at people with you. Let’s yell at people. Writing is boring.”
“We’ve never yelled at people together, Wilma.”
“It’s creative. You should try it.”
Wilma’s input is necessary for the book, and I want to keep her happy.
If you pass by our house and hear the two of us shouting curses at you from behind the driveway gate, please don’t take our insults personally. We’re just collaborating.
