DOC: Come on in; sit down.
LRE: You have seats? I think I’ve stood at all of the past appointments.
DOC: You could have at least sat on the floor.
LRE: I had probably lain down for one of them.
DOC: Lain down?
LRE: Yeah; lay, lie, laid, lay, etc. It’s stupid grammar, isn’t it?
DOC: Whatever. You’re the English major.
LRE: So I’m only going to answer you in 140 characters or less.
DOC: Um, what?
LRE: I’m keeping it short today.
LRE: Because that’s the limit Twitter puts on all of my thoughts.
LRE: Yeah, it’s a few years old, but suddenly, stars and Obama have made it popular.
LRE: He’s our twittering President.
DOC: Or is he the tweeting President?
LRE: Tweet, twit, lay, lie. Whatever.
DOC: So does this mean that you joined Twitter?
LRE: Yeah, pretty much. I don’t have very many followers, though.
DOC: So basically, you’re not popular in the Twitter world?
LRE: No, but my cat is.
LRE: Seriously. I started it as a joke and it turns out, there are TONS of twittering cats.
DOC: Wow; tweeting cats. Who’d a thunk?
LRE: Seriously. There’s even a blog about them… Cats Who Twitter.
DOC: And I thought the New York Times article about a cat lady twittering for her feline friends was a joke.
LRE: Hardly. And she even makes fun of dog twitterers.
DOC: But it’s okay for her to tweet on behalf of her many cats.
LRE: Right. And she’s just one of many. My cat now has 140 followers.
DOC: How many do you have?
LRE: Ten. Woo woo!
DOC: Well, if I was real, I’d follow you.
LRE: And not Pogi?
DOC: And Pogi, too. Because I’d want to make fun of you for owning a twittering cat.
LRE: He’s a funny cat. And so am I. Or at least, I think so.
DOC: Okay, let’s see what your tweets have been lately.
LRE: Sure, look them up, mister.
DOC: Here are two by you, ‘larriecampbell‘: “March is frozen food month and what better way to celebrate than a breakfast of eggos and otter pops… that’s totally tomorrow’s menu”
DOC: And… “Bought a regular Gatorade today instead of a G2… holy sugar batman, it’s like liquid blue frosting.”
LRE: I’ll never make that mistake again.
DOC: Okay, those weren’t so bad. Let’s have a look-see at this cat of yours… ‘PogiNotes’: “spent the night flicking the toy hanging from the door into the ceiling… BANG, BANG, BANG… take THAT upstairs neighbor”
LRE: Ha, what a good little kitty.
DOC: “LIVE IT UP ON FRIDAY cuz tomorrow’s bath day – same idea as eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow, you DIE”
LRE: Yeah, you’re right. It’s pretty strange.
DOC: Pretty much.
LRE: Let’s just say, it’s my social networking experience in the twittering cat world.
DOC: Don’t get too carried away. You only have 140 characters to work with.
