I've Been Linked

Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!

Me: Dang, I wish I could get all geeked up about nothing.

Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - "Johnson, Navin R.!" I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

Me: Yeah, well, I've been linked by Melinda June.

Navin slumps like a puppet whose strings have been cut and the air goes out of him like a balloon on a barbed wire fence.

Me: Oh...and when you are through crying? I'd stay away from those oil cans.

And does that phone book gag ever get old? I think not.
