"Whaddaya Gonna Do"
by C. N. Nevets, (c) 2010
Ya heard of a banana republic? Our POS country was a pickle republic. Smaller than a banana republic, less popular, and a little sour.
I shouldn’t complain. I was the effing dictator. If our country sucked, it’s my fault.
Still, it’s not like I grew up thinking, “Hey, ya know what? When I grow up I’m gonna lead the secession some redneck county in Indiana.” So I was kinda unprepared. But when they all gather up at the 4-H and ask for a show of hands – “Who’s all got management skills in their repertoire” – and you’re the only SOB that raises a hand, you’re kinda boned.
Oh well. Live n learn, I guess.
The above isn't a great story, but I had fun with the voice in that, so I thought I'd share it. Plus it gives me a chance to remind you all about the contest that's going on. See the link in the sidebar if you're not already signed up!
