Trevor’s Word of the Moment: Kindle


You’ll see why this is part of Only the Good Friday as you read on. Trust me. And yes, this time, you’ll want to trust Trevor, too.


Now here’s a good one for you. Kindle. Like kindle a fire. I get that. It’s not always the easiest thing on the face of the fucking planet to get a good fire started. Eric can do it. Eric likes to go camping and do all that outdoorsy shit. So when Eric tells yours truly that it takes some work to get a fire started, it takes a special kind of wood he calls kindling, that you have to nurse a fire and urge her along like some shy fan, I get that. I’ve had to nurse my fair share of girls. It’s not always worth the effort, believe me. Girls. They’re a crapshoot.

Eric says fires usually are worth it.

Fire’s some cool shit.

So why the fuck don’t we kindle cigarettes? Or candles?

And what’s with this kindle shit and books? That makes no fucking sense. It’s a stupid piece of plastic that shows the words in a book. No special firewood needed. Hell, no fucking fire involved. It doesn’t even look like a piece of kindling. Not that I really know the difference between kindling and any other stick in the fucking forest. Forests give me hives. No wonder Mitchell likes to hang out in ’em. He knows I won’t follow him there. Wanker.

But I gotta talk up this stupid-assed thing called the Kindle ’cause you can now make my book zing through thin fucking air and read it on your thingie named after a stupid stick. That means Susan gets money, and she’s worth money. She lets me take this place over like I’m doing now. And she’s got a small enough ego to know I’m the one you all stop in to see.

And while we’re talking about the stupid stick, did you know you can make it show this blog? You bet your titties.

I still don’t get why a book’s named after a stick. I hear it’s all black-and-white and it doesn’t have the pretty colors a fire’s got. I’ve got a band to stir shit up for, you know? What the fuck do I care about books?

Except I star in one. So you gotta read it. You know you love me and need more of me.

    Susan – I love a good product review. . . and this is one of the best I’ve ever read. Having your characters do product review is a great idea. Have you done it before? Is there a particular brand o,f say, recording equipment that trevor endorses?

    Nice job.

      Yeah, every now and then we’ll cross from the fictional world into the real one. A lot of times you may not realize it, as with the last Chelle piece I wrote. But I doubt it’s something I’d do on a regular basis.

    So does this mean “Amazon” isn’t a four letter word now? I do think Trevor has a point with the name Kindle. I’m not sure why they picked that name, although it does kind of make you want to do jazz hands when you say it.

    Anyway, congrats, that’s great news.

    Perfect! Thanks for the laugh and great review.

    BTW, Susan, I actually did take a nap that day and have been “forcing” myself to rest and nap on a pretty regular basis.

    are you talking about that thinger on Amazon? I want one of those but my husband refuses to get me one. He’s a cheap bastage. xD
