Excuses: Anastasia-1 Tom-0
My friends, there has been a big to-do about my being derelict in my duties. Tom's blog here I was supposed to take over, but my FB audience has been much more flattering and receptive to my beauty. After all, I did put the "face" in Facebook.
TOM: Anastasia, you egotistical wench! I have handsomeness to the ends of my whiskers, not to mention connections to the big Dude. See the sun halo-ing my furs?
Such a body carries a soul unblemished and unbesmirched.
ANASTASIA: Un-bewhat? Sounds goofy to me.
TOM: Ubesmirched. Means unsullied. Another one of my favorite words.
ANASTASIA: That nobody understands or cares about.
TOM: (draws himself up, all 9 3/4 inches with four feet on the ground) I'll have you know, I like saying big words. It helps my digestion, clears my sinuses and moves my bowels.
ANASTASIA: You don't say.
TOM: Let's get to the matter at hand. Why have you not kept up with my blog in my absence?
ANASTASIA: I told you. My Facebook audience keeps me busy.
TOM: Well, I'll be back soon and I'll have to apologize for you, you know.
ANASTASIA: Go ahead. And, don't forget to throw in one of your big words.
