I called in to Sprite’s Site to check a couple of references and was greeted by Imaginational Dabrowski.
“Where have you been? Was it an exciting expo or a creativity conference or……? Where have you been?” he asked.
“I participated in RSCON 5 http://www.futureofeducation.com/ and I will be writing about that soon” I said
“I have been working on an art course online at Derwent Academy http://www.derwentacademy.co.uk/
“And I went to visit posts on a couple of blog hops and I will write about that soon too” I said
“Why didn’t you write posts for Sprite’s Site and why didn’t you take Sprite and Retweet along with you?” Imaginational asked.
“Well, um … because reasons … real life got busy” I said
“I was looking for you because Sprite is all depressed” said Imaginational “ And when I tried to cheer her up by suggesting utopian ideas she just hugged her donkey tight and said ‘That is how it is supposed to be – but it isn’t like that!”
“It is probably SAD Seasonally Affected Black Dog who is making her miserable. We have had a lot of storms and rain lately” I said.
“No, I blame Intellectual Dabrowski” said Imaginational. “He let her read Orwell’s Animal farm and the newspapers!”
I found Sprite sitting on the chair in the Naughty Corner cuddling her donkey.
“How’s Eeyore?” I asked
“He is not Eeyore. He is Benjamin and he says ‘donkeys live a long time’ and he is sad” she replied.
“It sounds as if we need to have a talk!” I said
