A long week

I was just working away on some assignments when a random IM popped up on my screen. This the transcript of the entire, short, exchange:

DanRather1CBS: This has been a long week for me.

pomeranian99: I’ll bet.

DanRather1CBS: I was told those memos were legit. We were very thorough.

pomeranian99: Seriously, dude.

DanRather1CBS: These blogs are a pain in the neck. We didn’t have those during the ‘68 convention, I’ll tell you that.

pomeranian99: We aim to please!

DanRather1CBS: Well, I’ve got to get back to work—try to solve this mess. Don’t count me out—this isn’t the first time I’ve been to the rodeo!

pomeranian99: Absolutely. Keep on rocking in the free world.

DanRather1CBS: Thank you, Clive. I appreciate your support. Bye and good luck.

pomeranian99: Horns are up!

Heh. You know, if for some crazy reason that actually were Dan Rather, I can’t imagine what he now thinks of me.
