Hello, Kingdomers….uhhh… Kingdomites…. or whatever the followers of this here blog call themselves. For those of you who don’t know me, I am Revis Edgewater; First Knight of the Matticus Kingdom and co-author of the Jester’s book, The Erratic Sun. If you don’t already have it, I’ll wait patiently while you either go here for the paperback version or here for the Kindle version. Now that I’ve gotten that shameless plug out of the way, let me get on with telling you why I’m here.
Normally, I play on my own blog, but since both Matticus and I contributed to what you’re about to read next, I figured I’d stop on by the Kingdom. It’s been a while since I’ve made my presence felt here anyway.
Below is an exchange that took place between Matticus and I earlier today. This is what happens when we have enough time to email each other while we’re at work:
Revis: To err is human. Wait…. you’re human, right? Or are you some cybernetic jester from the future who also happens to write????
Matticus: I’m not a robot. Definitely not. Trust me. *creepy grin*
R: Damn, I was hoping for a robot friend. If Fry gets Bender, how come I can’t get one?
M: You make a valid argument about the Fry/Bender situation. Though, they both also have a Cyclops for a friend… so… even if I was a robot, which I’m most definitely not, we are both still getting gipped in the friendship department.
Also, we need a space ship.
R: Well, we don’t have a cyclops friend, but we do have a dinosaur friend. Does that count? We also have a ship. It’s called the Erratic Sun, remember? We just can’t fly it….
M: We do have a dinosaur friend, that’s very true. And I have a ninja-knight, a knightly ninja, as a friend. Can’t get much cooler than that. And, yes, we do have a spaceship. A very nice one. I’m not sure why you can’t fly it? I’ve taken it for a couple spins around the galaxy…
R: Wait, Terry lets you fly it??? He never lets me!
M: Hmm… That’s weird. I’ll have a word with him next time I see him.
R: Yeah, whenever I ask to fly it, he mumbles something about not wanting to die…
M: Have you given him a reason for doubting your ability to pilot the thing?
R: There was that one time I crashed that hovercar because I saw a squirrel, but that wouldn’t happen in the Sun. There aren’t any squirrels in space.
M: Squirrels in Space, the movie.
R: Oh, sure. Take Terry’s side. I see how you are.
M: That’s not what I was doing!! I was changing the subject…. 😛
R: Yeah, right. I bet you two go out on weekends and party without me…
M: Only once or twice.
R: I knew it! I’m the third wheel!
M: No!!! … you actually have to be around to be considered the third wheel, right? 😛
R: Do you think Al Gore would’ve still invented the Internet if he knew that this was the kind of stuff we’d do with it?
M: Yes! He’s the biggest prankster of all!
