I read your book.
Wow. Really? Thank you. Did you enjoy it?
No. It was rubbish.
Well…I…um…I don’t think it was that bad.
Yeah, it was. Total rubbish.
Wow. Anything in particular you didn’t like?
All of it. Complete rubbish from beginning to end.
Ouch. That cuts deep.
Write another one. But make it better than that last one.
I was going to….but I don’t think I’ll bother now.
Oh, don’t feel bad about it. How long did it take you to write?
Sweet Jesus! What a waste of time that was then.
Problem was your main character was such a huge asshole. Total prick.
But I based that character on you, mom.
You did? How sweet! THWAAAACKKKK!!!
