The ‘WHAT IF’ Game

For whatever reason, I’ve seen a lot of blogging this week on Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code. Dan’s book crossed a line from fiction into religion, a pretty sacred topic, pun intended. So it got me thinking (which is always dangerous).

WHAT IF religion crossed paths with the Internet? Hummmm…

1.) WHAT IF God blogged on MySpace? Would she have more friends than Barack Obama?

2.) WHAT IF Buddha had a MySpace blog? Would his transcendental web design be better than God's? How would we know?

3.) WHAT IF the Bible was translated into text message? Who would read it?

(An eye for an eye would translate to – I 4N I - Think about it.)

I’m sure you can come up with many other examples. The ‘WHAT IF’ game doesn’t have to be about religion. Pose a ‘WHAT IF’ that stands out for you. I’m listening…

With Dennis--Can he have any other kind of relationships?

Twisted? I call him Pretzel Boy, a term of endearment.

I think that if there is a God,he/she should blog on myspace.
It would be interesting to see which person who is supposedly speaking for God is really right1
And Dennis, you have a great/twisted relationship with yoeur ex.

I think there's a touching sentiment in there somewhere, but I'd need a shovel to make sure. :)

I am heading to West Palm Beach at first light to attend my baby Monica's high school graduation. It seems like just yesterday when I was layin' the bricks to the ex---making her squeal in ecstasy as we performed the mating ritual that led to these events.

I must remind her of that tomorrow. Like I could whisper:

Psssttt, Vic. Were we in the new neighbor's jacuzzi the night Monica was conceived? Member? Before they moved in?

Course, she'll poke me, say "Hush." Not wanting her hubby to hear us.

"Could it have been when we went canoeing that Sunday and everyone cheered when we were doing it till the gator tipped us over?"

"It's times like this when I remember why I divorced you."

"Ouch, that hurt. Was it when we tried to do it standing up in that hammock that K-mart had on display??"

Oh well, it doesn't really matter when. My baby is a graduate.

How's your back, D? You up and around?

Oh yeah,

I hate it when I ain't typing. WHOO?? was written for NaNoWriMo---but, the rewrite is consuming. I have Escape & BOOM to do now.

I wrote my debut book in 6 wks while on medical leave, recovering from major surgery. But I don't want to do THAT again--the surgery OR the 6 wk schedule. 3 of the books are written and I've got plenty of time for the next 3. Not a problem.

When I was working full time and writing full time, I could finish a manuscript in 6 months, but that's without a life. I want my weekends back. I'll be writing full time in June. Can't wait.

I dunno, J.D.

Six books? I can't top that. It takes too long to write 'em.

You can sell anything, D. A scary thought.
Comment by Dennis Leppanen on May 23, 2007 at 7:45am
It was your prompt, JD. I just thought maybe...I needed a disoriented side-kick with a bent toward the religious.

What? It won't sell??
