Laconic Answers

It’s time for everyone’s favorite weekly installment of Larrie’s imaginary therapy session with her very smart, very imaginary doctor. Game on.

DOC: Welcome, welcome.

LRE: Thank you, thank you.

DOC: Glad you could make it this week.

LRE: Ah, gee, thanks, doc. But really, I make it every week… for the sake of my loyal blog readers.

DOC: How many loyal readers do you have?

LRE: A handful.

DOC: Really?

LRE: Yeah; just cuz they don’t really comment doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

DOC: Okay; go ahead and keep telling yourself that.

LRE: I will; thank you very much.

DOC: So should we get to my list of questions that we never got to last week?

LRE: You have a list of questions?

DOC: Well, sort of. And I didn’t actually have them from last week, but thanks to Shanny, I have them now.

LRE: Oh, so you really didn’t put any time into it, but just swiped a list of questions from my buddy ol’ pal’s blog?

DOC: So?

LRE: Just so long as we know where you got them from.

DOC: Well, she said that any of the blogs linked to from her blog could do it and I was rather surprised that your blog was linked.

LRE: Why would you be surprised?

DOC: Because who would link to a blog like this?

LRE: The better question would be: WHO WOULDN’T?

DOC: Oh… right.

  1. I never would have described your dad as punny. 🙂 Isn’t it spelled puny Miss Knows Everything about English?? It’s ok, I’ll still visit your blog.


  2. Oh you miss me. That’s tender… remember how I bought a flight back. Yep, I peace out of the HK on Dec 12th… So you won’t have to miss me for much longer… or you could just come to Australia with me at the beginning of December… ooh, that really is brilliant. I like it. And I like us.


  3. @megs… if I didn’t need money to pay for things (like a mortgage) I would just quit my job so I could go to Australia. Why am I not going? Why?
    It would really be the bestest Christmas present to myself and to my fabulous HK pal. sigh.
