Me n' TV

Humor

Chapter 1

TV: Feeling moody?

ME: Yeah.

TV: Down?

ME: You bet.

TV: Feeling like your emotions are on some sort of…pendulum?

ME: Oh my god that is like exactly how I –

TV: Cialis can help.

ME: Yeah?

TV: Cialis gives you an extra boost.

ME: Well, what is it?

TV: Cialis is a natural enhancement prescription drug available from most doctors and pharmacies.

ME: Oh. Oh, okay. Um…

TV: What? I thought you said you were feeling moody.

ME: Yeah no I am but –

TV: Well come on, man! Cialis is waiting.

ME: I dunno. I’d really rather just…talk to someone, y’know?

TV: Fine. (deep sigh) What do you wanna talk about?

ME: You want me to talk to you?

TV: Well it’s 4 am, pal. So it’s either me or the toaster oven.

(from the kitchen, we hear the toaster oven cry: “I’m so lonely”).

ME: Okay. Well, um, it’s just that, I just moved here to New York and sometimes it’s really difficult. Like I’ll be happy and everything’s fine and then all of a sudden, I’ll feel incredibly depressed, and I’ll miss my friends like crazy.

TV: Cialis can help with that.

ME: No, see, you’re not listening. I don’t want to take a pill. I just want to talk to someone.

TV: Look, I am listening, okay? I’m taking in the information you’re providing, and I’m offering advice. And my advice is to ask your doctor about Cialis. Because 9 out of 10 men suffer from erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives, and from what you’re telling me, it doesn’t sound like you’re in the minority.

ME: Honestly, TV, this isn’t about my inability to hold a bon…wait, Cialis is a male enhancement drug?! I don’t need a male enhancement drug!!

TV: Sure you don’t.

ME: Oh, screw you, TV, you suck. You are the worst friend in the world, y’know that? All you do is shout at me and tell me to buy things I don’t need! God, I hate you so much!

(He turns off TV. Alone. Goes into kitchen. Looks at toaster).

TOASTER: I have suicidal thoughts.

ME: Um, okay, I don’t really know what you want me to do with that knowledge, but –

TOASTER: Hold me.

ME: Okay, okay.

(He lifts the toaster up, holds it tight against his chest, fondles the chord betwixt his fingers).

Kassidy Duncan: This is a really sweet story, and I'm really enjoying the premise! It's cute, but also is put forward well in terms of a TV drama (as in, I could definitely see this being acted out). There were a few spelling and grammatical errors that I noticed, but other than that, it was a great read.

Jazie Alyssa Flores: There may have been many grammar errors. But OMG this story had me on an emotional rollercoaster ride. I loved every bit of it. The relationship Sydney and Cameron had was beautiful. I loved how it wasn't a typical love story but revolved around a growing friendship and the drama that surrounded ...

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

shemotshalom: I never ever read books,I had a little bit of trouble with it in the beginning,I ship Matt and grace but I liked her better with Cole and I would love to see how that would turn out!I still love this book there could've been more drama and I think the tittle could've tricked anyone thinking that ...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

christylynnr5: This book was absolutely amazing. It had romance, comedy, and mystery. Sid is a girl that pretends to be a boy and goes to an all boys school. Of course there is going to be romance. There's comedy in the story because Sid's character is carefree and has no filter making her bluntness and sarcasm...
