“A blog.” She smiled in that infuriating way she had that made you feel like you were about to be eaten by a crocodile.
“What in the world is a blog?” He pictured his stuffed, bright blue, poisonous frog hopping across his desk.
“It's a web log, kind of like an online journal.”
“Okaaaay.” He drew the word out, hoping meanwhile, that the world might start making sense again. He let out a long sigh after it didn't appear to revert. “So what makes you think I'd be good at this?”
Her hands flitted around in the air, “Just look at your office, you have a unique perspective on life. You collect all this...stuff.” She turned around, looking at his collection of toys, books, photos, and a few unidentifiable things from his many trips around the world. “I'm sure there's a story behind each of them. So just write about it.”
“But, I'm not a writer. I'm a photographer.”
“Even more reason. You'll be fresh. It'll be a new perspective on things. I'm thinking 'Seeing Things Through a Different Lens' for the title. Give it a week, please.”
Her version of please was more of an order than a request. So now, he found himself entering the wild world of the blog.
First up, the story of a blue dart frog trying to escape a crocodile. She'd never make the connection, at least he hoped she wouldn't. He wouldn't be able to defend himself as well as the blue frog would. This might turn out to be fun, after all.
