I like my pedestrian nuggets with barbecue sauce

"I'm so tired I can't write 55 words today," groaned Janna. "I'm going to bed."

"Wait!" shouted her imaginary friend, Orson. "If you just keep spouting gibberish, you might just make it!"

"I... what?"

"Say three things that make no sense..."

"Purple basket honker,
Nutritious pedestrian nuggets,
Brian danced on spiders."

"See? You made it!"

Great 55! Hope you get some sleep.

Great 55! Hope you get some sleep.

Brian: Once you've seen a purple basket honker, it's hard to get the mental image out of your head.

Teresa: I intend to! Right now! :o

Monkey Man said...

Janna, what a suck up. Doing a shout out to Brian? Jeez! Guess I'm just jealous. Does it show too badly?

Janna said...

MonkeyMan: If it makes you feel any better, I actually meant Brian the dog from Family Guy. :o Shhhhh. Don't tell anyone.

Amropali said...

Well, you actually made it!

congrats.

Nutricious Pedestrian Nuggets...?
Soylent Green!!!!!!!
You always are talkin about food.
Loved your semi-comotose pre- indigestion 55 Janna. You Rock!!
You are like finding that little magnifying glass as your prize in a box of Cracker Jack!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Free association comes up with some odd stuff, doesn't it? Have a restful weekend!

Awesome. Always enjoy when you write humor. Very creative and not many people do it well :)

You're wandering into dangerous territory, revealing to all our poetic trick of spouting insensible gibberish when stuck for a coherent thought. You aren't supposed to tell! Hilarious 55, and *every* Brian I've ever met has danced on spiders, occasionally in high heels.Well, except for the ones who ran away screaming.

Belinda said...

Always love your 55s. Will keep an eye out for pedestrian nuggets.

Olivia said...

It's enough to make my head go wonky, but it works.

I knew there was a reason I preferred the calorie-laden Quarter Pounder with cheese bus drivers.

Janna said...

Amropali: I made it!

G-Man: I talk about food because it is one of life's great joys... AND because some of it is just downright funny. :)

EnchantedOak: My weekend will be terribly busy, but I optimistically hope for a few moments of rest here and there. Hopefully here.

Shanae: I like that one too. I used that phrase in another post a few years ago, and it stuck with me. :)

Dustus: Why thank you! :)

Hedgewitch: I spout nonsensical gibberish most of the time, and still sometimes it never results in a coherent thought. Sad, isn't it?

Belinda: McDonalds might have coupons for them in the Sunday paper. (The nuggets, not my 55's.)

Olivia: If only there was video...

Alice: It's ok. My head is wonky too.

nonamedufus: And don't forget the traffic-cop milkshakes and the juvenile delinquent fries!

LOL, delightful, clever. Your imaginary friend is much kinder than mine - he has my dad's Gruff Father Voice, and more or less bullies me into the writer's chair.

"Your books aren't going to write themselves," he half-smiles, before telling me, "At six p.m., you get to drink a pint of Guinness. Now get to it!"

Janna said...

Steve: Only one pint?

LOTGK said...

Never pet a burning dog.

It's good advice.

Janna said...

LOTGK: It might make a good fortune cookie for a Chinese place that served overcooked dogs... No, wait...
