Wendy: (dangles Mountain Dew in front of muse.) C'mon.... it'll be fun. Sarah said it will be fun.
Muse: (raises eyebrows) Really? That's what you're going with? Mountain Dew?
Wendy: (sighs) We've got to do it. You know we do.
Muse: We already wrote this book. (points at other WIPs) We haven't written those. We should work on those.
Wendy: (snaps in front of muse's face) Hey! Focus.... focus. Ignore the shiny.
Muse: (rolls eyes) Okay... what else do you have?
Wendy: Uhh danger music?
Muse: Danger music?
Wendy: Yeah... you know the music that plays during movie trailers and during actions scenes? I though maybe we could hum it while we work on the chapter summary. I thought maybe if we pictured the book as a series of flashing action scenes and then filled in the blanks....
Muse: That's what you're bringing to the table? Mountain Dew and danger music?
Wendy: Possibly sex. We might be able to con the husband into sex tonight if we finish this chapter summary.
Muse: Dude, that's all you... otherwise it's creepy... it's like a threesome.
Wendy: Yeah, I suppose. I was hoping... the endorphins...?
Muse: I do like endorphins.
Wendy: We don't have to tell him.
Muse: There is that.
Wendy: Plus, danger music and Mountain Dew. (eyes house) I should probably clean, though. Possibly do some laundry.
Muse: Okay, you do that... and bring the danger music and Mountain Dew and we'll see what happens.
Wendy: Hopefully some very dark things. BAWAHAHAHA!
Muse: Don't do that.
Muse: The laugh. Don't do the laugh.
Wendy: (rolls eyes) Fine. (Starts humming)
Muse: That's the Last of the Mohicans theme. What the hell kind of book do you think we're writing?
Muse: (rolls eyes) Go with something from Terminator or maybe Transformers.
Wendy: Pass the Mountain Dew.
Muse: (passes) You finish off that diet crap. I don't run on diet crap.
Wendy: Oh for the love of....!
Muse: Don't profane.
