Diddly Squat

A Chapter by Dave Brown




What’s happin?

Diddly squat.

Thanks for pickin me up.


Bleeping thing wouldn’t start this morning,

Know why?

Humm, don’t know, could be carb but whatever, I got it towed, more money, can’t seem to stop spending.

Ya, I know, it sucks!

Well, let me get this round as a thankyou.

Oh! OK!

Then you can get the next one as a ‘your welcome’.


An can you drive me?


Gotta geta Valentine’s card.

Oh ya, for your new lady,


She’s hot.

Ummm, yummy.

She likes cards and stuff, yu know.


Kina early isn’t it?

If I leave it, I’ll forget.

What about present or flowers or like that?

No, but I’ll read you a little poem I’m gunna leave inside.

I’ll pass.

Just listen, it won’t hurt, no pain no gain.

OK, but just this one time.


“Roses are red

Violets are blue

And I’s be so like too totally

Blue without U”


Wow, lucky girl, so too sweet, you got talent.

Ya, I guess.

Should ‘blue’ be used twice?

Don’t sweat it.

‘K’, when do you wanna go?

How bout after the ‘your welcome’ round?

Works for me.

ddude !
"roses are red
violets are blue
I like peanut butter
can you swim?"
okay, doesn't make sense...I SHOULD have used Blue twice.

She did not like this...and she threw her dead battery at me.
Gave me acid refulx
and another ex-relationship.

I love this kinda-different style for you! You've incorporated the Paul Bell style of telling a rambling story thru only dialogue, yet you've retained your own distinctive style of painting doofus characters to the hilt. I mean, nobody makes ignorance look as dashing & hoity-toity as you do. You've got your finger on the pulse of ignorant hill-folk, like the kind I live around. And you know how we write about them like it's a spoof, like we aren't ONE OF THEM!!!! *wink! wink!* This poem is very well crafted & one of your top notch creations! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
