Missing Marbles

Cameron: Marcus, why are you trying to add this clipart photo to our post?

Marcus:  Because Jan said she's losing her marbles and I thought we should help her look for them. Our readers can help.  I think this is what they look like.  Has anyone seen them?

Buddy:  That's just an expression, Marcus.  Humans say that when they ... well, when they're actually losing their marbles.

Cyndi:  But a human's marbles aren't visible to the naked eye, Marcus.  They're invisible.  Perhaps virtual is an easier way to think of it.

Marcus:  *blink, blink*

Sam:  Marcus, just think of Jan's marbles as existing only on the computer or online.  Except they're actually in her head.

Marcus:  *blank stare*

Percy:  I don't think you guys are getting through to him.  But, then, if you were explaining it that way to me, I wouldn't understand a word you're saying either.

Micah:  It's all my fault.  If it wasn't for me, Jan would still have all her marbles, no matter where she keeps them.

Merci:  No, it isn't your fault, Micah.  For once, Jan read her calendar and -

Rusty:  - got ahead of herself.  Actually, she got ahead of everyone. She saw Micah's Gotcha Day was the 24th, so she dropped everything to make him a graphic for us to post today ... tomorrow. (We're writing this tonight ... er, Wednesday night to post Thursday.) 

Cameron:  Yes, a day late is better than never.

Sam:  Only she couldn't figure out how yesterday was the 24th if today (now yesterday) was the 27th.

Cyndi:  Yes, that did seem a little strange, but around here we're usually on the wrong day anyway, so who's to notice?

Buddy:  Jan was so confused she compared two calendars and couldn't figure out why they didn't match.  It finally dawned on her she was in September instead of August.

Rusty:  Yes, reading the wrong calendar month does make a difference.  She is now ready for Micah's Gotcha Day next month.

Merci:  She might be ready now but you know she's going to forget to read the calendar next month and forget to help us post it in time.

Micah:  I guess I should feel special instead of guilty.  Jan dropped everything because she thought she was late for my Gotcha Day.

Percy:  Well, Marcus, did you understand the discussion about Jan's lost marbles?

Marcus:  *shakes head*  Not a word, Percy, not a word!

Buddy:  Things have been so crazy around here with computer crashes and Jan's missing marbles, we are a week late acknowledging the Influential Blogger award from Pipo and Minko of the WeBeesSiameezers blog.  It's nearly midnight, so we hope you will all forgive us if we just say thank you, kind friends, and finish our post before Percy falls off the typing chair from exhaustion.

We are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Pepi Smart Dog.

And Thoughtless Thursday co-hosted by Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a huskie.
