Writerly

“So I’ve decided I’m going to be a writer at Cartoon Network.”

“Do they know that?”

“No, not exactly.”

“And by not exactly, you mean not at all.”

“I’m working on it. I mean, it’s really not any different than trying to get any other job, the same basic plan works.”

“And that is…”

“Figure out who has the power to hire me, then convince that person that I’m super-smart, a comic genius, and this next part is vitally important, I’m so much fun to have around that she can’t help but want to hire me just so that I’ll be in the office.”

“But everybody hates you.”

“That’s only mostly true.”
