While Dufus, Maryse and I were hanging out, quaffing a few beers at Rover's Rump, another conversation was going on about 100 miles or so to the East.

*Nicky paces up and down the hallway, fuming*
Jepeto: "What's wrong?"
Nicky: "It's Boom Boom and Dufus. They refuse to participate in the 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing challenge this year."
Jepeto: "So? You said there were no rules, so maybe they figured they didn't have to play."
Nicky: "You don't get it! It's not just that they're refusing to play along, they're being downright mean to me. Did you see how Boom Boom tried to dismember me? And I couldn't believe it when Dufus said I was a conniving witch!"
Jepeto: "Well, at least they didn't call you a succubus."
Nicky: "No, they didn't... but Ziva did.
Jepeto: "Then why are you smiling?"
Nicky: "She meant it in a good way. And when Ziva started talking about how succubi wear kick-ass stiletto boots.... well...."
Jepeto: *sigh* "The two of you are incorrigible."
To be continued...

Will Nicky get her boots? Will Dufus and Boom Boom stop making disparaging remarks about Nicky? Will anybody else actually come up with something for this silly prompt? Check out who's participating in "30 Minus 2 Days of Writing" over at We Work For Cheese.
