D: Oh, A. That’s not even a word.
A: You sound so disappointed, D. It is a word. It’s on the internet.
D: . . .
A: I saw it in the Urban Dictionary. That means it’s a word.* Plus, it’s awesome and it means Johnny Depp dances in a kilt. There is little else better than that.
D: I . . . I have nothing for you on that. I suppose I simply feel that it isn’t up to par with your other words.
A: It isn’t? I think that perhaps it is. It’s frabjous after all.
D: You are ridiculous.
A: It’s Friday, and it’s fra-
D: You can stop that now.
A: Fine. What would you rather I have as a word for today?
D: Must we even have a word for the day? It’s a day – using some sort of spectacular and nonsensical word to describe it isn’t going to elevate it. That’s up to you.
A: Humor me, Druid.
D: I’ve spent years humoring you.
A: And another fifteen minutes won’t kill you.
D: (grumble . . . mutter . . . grumble)
A: What was that?
D: Bloody woman. Fine. I have a word for you.
A: I’m breathless with anticipation.
A: But what about–? But you–? You know what? Forget it. Feeling old-school today, D?
D: You ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie, lady.
A: . . .
D: Don’t you like my modern parlance, A?
A: I – I’m speechless, D.
D: Well, then it is a Frabjous Friday after all.
* I don’t really believe that, but sometimes I have to take one for the team, just to rile the druid.
The Druid Tells the Tale
D: So much has been happening on the blogosphere since A decided to indulge herself in a little bit of ‘slow-blogging’ as she calls it. Lazy is more like.
A: Oi! I’ve been busy. And you know, writing.
A: Are you going to tell the tale or tell tales on me?
Give Green a round of applause, not only for the inspired serial, but for his incredible rendering of yours truly. It almost makes me blush.
D: I’m not burdened with too much modesty, Miss A.
A: I can see that – I can also see that Green did a fantastic job. While you’re reading Green’s serial, please give Ionia a virtual hug, pray, send healing energy or sacrifice a chicken, if that’s your style. She may throw a squirrel or a cupcake at you, but we still want her to know she’s in our thoughts.
D: I’m hoping for cupcakes, myself. Finally, If chills are more your style, take a gander at the latest entry in the Jessica Bell Bayou Bonhomme series.
A: So much creativity; it truly is frapjous (don’t look at me like that D). If you are looking for a place to put your own creative wordling (as I have), look no further. The Community Storyboard wants YOU! Submit to us now.
D: A really, that is so. . . .
A: You have a dirty mind, D.
D: 13 years in your head, A. 13 years.

D: And finally, take a moment to read and vote onPatti Hall’s story on love, laughter and loss. It’s beautiful and shows a strong heart.
A: That’s it everyone. Have a Frabjous Friday!
