Bud: Why are we here? I thought this feature died a miserable death in week four!Mimi: They wanted us back!
Bud: Who are ‘they”? Clearly not anyone who actually read our reviews at the time.Mimi: Stay with me here, my prince. What did you think of tonight’s show?
Bud: Mims, I really thought Melinda Doolittle would win. I said that since Week One.Mimi: And your number two was?
Bud: Lakesha.Mimi: So you admit you were wrong?
Bud: Yes, so whaaa…Mimi: Bud, guys NEVER say they were wrong. I just want it officially on the record.
Bud: What record?Mimi: Bud, you forget. I am in education. I can get it put on YOUR PERMANENT RECORD!
Bud: Wow. I remember that threat. But I never understood what it meant.Mimi: I am the highly skilled and pencil skirted teacher who can put a note in your file. “Bud doesn’t play well with the other children. Simply ask Lola!”
Bud: You are on Lola’s side?Mimi: Of course not, sweetie. But once that goes onto YOUR PERMANENT RECORD your life will never be the same.
Bud: Just because I admitted I was wrong about Melinda? I still do not understand even if you put that on whatever the fuck my PERMANENT RECORD
is…How can that hurt me?Mimi: Colleges use the permanent record to decide on admissions.
Bud: So…? Mimi: You do think college is important, don’t you?
Bud: Mimi, stay with me here. Yes college is important. I graduated in friggin’ 1973. Permanent record or no, I ain’t going back. Hon, back to topic.Mimi: The permanent record isn’t our topic?
Bud: No we are doing “American Idol” again. Mimi: Well that’s different.
Bud: How so? Mimi: We are beating a dead horse.
Bud: I like to think of it as dropping in again to add to the dialogue.Mimi: So Melinda is gone?
Bud: Exactly. Even though I predicted she would win way back at the start.Mimi: She came close. On Mother’s Day you told your Aunt Helen (The world’s biggest 80 + year old Idol fan) that Jordan would win.
Bud: How do you know that? You were in Banister and I was in New England?Mimi: She phoned me.
Bud: Why would she do that?Mimi: We women stick together. She has written down every time you’ve been wrong in every American Idol Season.
Bud: More than just Melinda. No doubt?Mimi: Hon, I can make you feel better.
Bud: Mims, I am not upset that Melinda didn’t win. I guessed Jordan on Sunday.Mimi: Yes, if you guessed someone different EVERY week, you’d have to be right eventually. Who did you pick last year?
Bud: Chris Daughtry.Mimi: 1 – 2 – 3 – 4th place. Not close.
Bud: He is going to be the biggest rock star. Taylor was great, but Chris was the real deal.Mimi: Blake might win it this year.
Bud: Not Sanjaya? Blake is good with those DJ sound effects, but he’s the weakest number two ever!Mimi: Worse than Justin?
Bud: I did not see the first season. Mimi, who do you think wins it?Mimi: I’m not positive but I got it narrowed down.
Bud: Yes?Mimi: Either Blake or Jordan.
Bud: I won’t argue with you there. So anything else up?Mimi: Just me. I’ll be “UP” to New England on Thursday.
Bud: I better dust.Mimi: Bud?
Bud: Yes?Mimi: Didn’t they cancel this feature?
Bud: Yep.Mimi: Than why are we here?
Bud: Some guy who writes “The Rising Blogger” said we might win an award with this
feature.Mimi: You just made that up.
Bud: OK, I have never met Judd.Mimi: Maybe we will win “The Rising of an Old Comedy Bit That We Should Have Left Dead Blogger” award.
Bud: Where’s the Smirnoff?
