My Inner Skeptic

My inner skeptic and I had a little chat this morning that went something like this.
Inner Skeptic: Yo, Kaa.

Me: [distracted by work] Yeah?

IS: Isn't it time you quit calling me your 'inner skeptic' and admitted that I'm a bigger part of you than that? Like, maybe even the larger part of you?

Me: [slightly annoyed] I'm sort of attempting to write code, right now, so if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to--

IS: At least give me a name so I don't sound like some horrid little gnome.

Me: [giving in, knowing that until this is resolved, he can get no work done] Like what?

IS: Well...something that connotes skepticism, but doesn't make me sound cold and analytical and cruel. You've portrayed me as little more than a homunculus or golem filled with schadenfreude, delighting in nothing so much as the wanton disillusionment of gullible people.

Me: [unimpressed] Are you done showing off your vocabulary, now?

IS: [purturbed] I suppose so. [Raises eyebrows] The name?

Me: [Ponders] How 'bout "Skippy?"

Skippy: [Incredulous] You. Cannot. Be serious.

Me: [Grins evilly] Try me.

Skippy: [Groans] Damn.
Henceforth, I will refer to my inner skeptic as "Skippy." Skippy the Skeptic. It has a nice ring, don't you think? I hate you. No, you don't. Thppppt. Real mature. Bite me.

*chortling evilly, and perhaps somewhat insanely*

I love this entry...I was having a horrible day, but this made me chortle loud and long. Thank you, Kaa!

You have a talent for writing dialog...I hear it how I think you meant it to be read, and it's very natural. Bravo!

Well, I'm glad it helped. :) It's interesting that you say I write natural dialogue, though. Because when I try to write it--like in a story form--it comes out stiff and unnatural. For something like this....

Maybe I'm trying to hard. :)

Could be, because its flow was perfectly natural and I could see it occuring and hear the dialog in my head. I was impressed! :o)

I guess that's better than taking a soccer ball, painting a face on it, and calling it Wilson. Though I must say, it's almost as disturbing.

Have you taken your temperature today? Feeling warm, lightheaded? How about blurry vision?

*hiding volleyball* Why, um...yes. Yes it is better than that.

I've been a bit sleepy, but that's all. :)

Re: Skippy
Yeah. If only gullible people didn't, either. *sigh*

Re: Skippy
Yes, that thought had occurred to me. :) Make of that what you will. :)
