Top Lip Like A PT Cruiser

Today is Day 18 of my 20-day Writing Challenge. And you know what? I’m loving every minute of it. I’ve learned that for me, creating is not a chore: it’s a yoga that I can breathe my entire soul into.

This morning, I woke up and noticed that I missed a call from my friend and comedy mentor, Quinn C. Martin. Incidentally, he’s headlining his own show tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe (279 Yonge / $20 / 8PM) and it’s being opened by none other than Grammy-award winning Scratch from The Roots.

PT Cruiser grill

Anyhoo, here’s how the conversation went,

Quinn: *Sarcastically* Yo, I didn’t know you were talking to [] behind my back…
Me: Who? []? Man, I heard she was getting her top lip cleaned at the car wash (we previously discussed how this girl’s top lip resembled the grill of a PT Cruiser).
Quinn: You’re going too far…
Me: You think she gets the Deluxe Wash?
Quinn: Oh my God…
Me: It probably takes 5 asians working simultaneously to wax that lip.
Quinn: See that? That’s how you should talk on stage. You just premise-punchline-tagged the entire thing.

And then I thought back to what I said and how I said it…Alas, looking back at something you did naturally and trying to figure out how it happened is like trying to observe a quantum particle: the mere presence of the observer causes the observed to change…sigh…I’ll figure it out.

In the meanwhile, I’ll enjoy this absolute gem of a track I discovered while browsing a record shop,


PS – Oh yeah, and I got hired by a pornography website to write some copy for them. Keep writing, my friends. You never know where it might take ya! It’s a lot of work trying to lead a life that doesn’t include a boss, but ever since I started following my passion (comedy, not porn, no that p…you know what I mean), a wealth of treasure has fallen into my lap.

    LOL Hired by a porn site. Think they will hire me? Not for porn…to write 😉

    • Hey Rebecca2000,

      Lol, I’ll finish the first contract and then let you know!

      What better way to finance my way to California than to give back to the industry that has done so much for me. I think it’s my turn to give back, you know?

      The ultimate would be to write porn scripts. Seriously. I think that there is a lot of creative space that has yet to be explored there.

      It’s amazing where writing will take ya. I thought that I was just rambling on here…little did I know I was building a skill at the same time.
