Dude and Dude: Virtual Limits



“Have you seen OC?”


“Well, where is he, then?”

“In bed, asleep.”

Gnarly, dude! The place is ours! First thing, I want a beer. Then I want to tweet some of our friends and invite ’em over. Tell ’em to bring pizza. It’s party time!”

“Go ahead, dude. Grab a brew for me while you’re diggin’ in the fridge, willya?”

“Sure thing, du … Hey!

Problem, dude?”

“Yeah. I reach for this brew bottle, and I can’t pick it up! My hands just go through it!”

“Fancy that, dude. It’s almost like you’re invisible or something. Virtually invisible.”

“What are you tryin’ to say?”

“I said it already. OC is asleep.”

“Which means?”

“That when he ain’t doin’ nothin’, you ain’t either. Includin’ drinkin’ his beer and trashin’ his pad.”

“Well, how come I’m talkin’ with you, then?”

“He’s sleepwalkin’. And I, for one, don’t want him wandering around looking for you in his sleep and breakin’ his fool neck. Trust me, that would be a command-X moment for us. Big time.”

Control-X, dammit, dude. OK, OK, sack time. I’m comin’ …”

  1. just glad you weren’t talking about “The OC”

    • Hmm, Davis, there’s a thought. It’s a nice sleepy little community, no?

  2. Command x – guess I need to learn computer shortcuts LOL

    • Thom, don’t learn Command X unless you get a Mac.

  3. The dudes need to get straight whether they’re Macs or PCs. Heck, we all do.

  4. Thom, Doug, the Dudes operate on incompatible platforms. This comes as a surprise how?

  5. I couldn’t find your email address anywhere so I am leaving a completely off topic comment. My Ruby Tuesday post today is of a mystery spider and Thom told me to ask you again. And we looked for more mealybugs / mealybug destroyers and haven’t seen any! Thanks 🙂

    • I posted an answer on your blog after I got home from work and practice. No mealybugs is good mealybugs, eh? 😉
