Me n' TV

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).

Julia Summers PA: Reading this now. It's fun, hilariously fabulous yet taste of what you desire in a unusual read. I will post an actual review when I am finished. But so far loving the flow and the story seems to keep me drawn

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches. It makes for a great read and the sequels are amazing. Totally worth reading. ^^ That's me trying to be professional. But in all hones...

Marijana1: The story might be characterized as “modern fantastic”. The representation of “the future” is not only ironic and fault-finding, but also very critical. Of course, it is highly exaggerated, but I get the feeling that it may well be linked to the truth, even though it is far away from it. The fact...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

Serlina Rose: I read this story and i could picture this relationship clearly, not just because I am experiencing the same things towards my best-friend of six almost years. I think it well written, I was quite captured about what would happen, and how they were going to deal with their feelings. The settings...

: Nothing like I have ever read. Loved every single bit of it, it had the right amount of romance and humour. I would definitely be re-reading this book. It certainly captivated me, it was so difficult to put this book down.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Beloved Q Medina: At first I figured it was another genre fiction book and didn't have any expectations, but by the first few chapters I found myself engrossed in Sid's journey.
