Gig In Progress


SCENE: At my local watering hole, minding my own business, downing a few High Lifes (Lives?) to shut up the voices in my head.....

H (screen printer): Hey, John. I got a Mexican restaurant that wants a smiling pinata with the caption "I'd Hit That!" on a t-shirt they can sell to customers.

Me: What's the budget?

H: I can go as high as $75.

Me (with a YOU-GOTTA-BE-KIDDIN' face): WHAT!?

H (giving me the fish-eye...he knows me oh too well): You heard me.

Me: Uh....that's a little low....(time to pull a face...something that says I'm thinking it over like I'm trying to dissect a radioactive frog...) Okay, I'm in.

H: When can I see a pencil?

Me: Tomorrow.

Fun dialog. Hmmm... $75 plus a small percentage of the profits? :)

Well, I guess they did come up with the concept. I like it and your pencil, too. Made me laugh right away.

Boy, that's an eager-looking donkey. :)


That's good.

But without the dialog, I first thought it was a political statement.


I hope they also added free meals...
