I had the perfect confluence of narrator, story, and opportunity. When Richard Sack said, “I’d like to narrate something short between bigger projects,” I said, “What do you think of Terry and Doug here?”
And he was off and narrating, sending me clips of the flying coleslaw and the nitrous oxide, which… I don’t want to spoil it for you, but he did have to edit out some laughter.
So, this short runs for about an hour, good for treadmill time or a day of errands, possibly waiting for an appointment, and it’s meant to put a smile on your face. Heck, I wrote it, but it was a whole new experience to hear Richard giving life to Terry’s inner dialog. Even knowing what was coming…
I wrote Doug’s voice as sounding like “chocolate steeped in good Cabernet.” Which Richard does, perfectly. Can we just say, “Richard gives good voice”?
So go ahead–let Richard tell you Terry and Doug’s story. You’ll enjoy it as much as Terry–eventually–does.
“Say hi to Doug at the car show.” Just because Keith is a good pal, has good intentions, and has great taste in men doesn’t mean Terry wants his own personal matchmaker. With his luck and past experience, he and the man Keith set him up with would hate each other on sight. Besides, Terry can’t look for the elusive Doug; he’s too busy ogling a certain gorgeous 1949 MG TC.
The sleek roadster stands out even among a field of classic beauties, and so does the driver. Is it too much to ask that the guy forget about Terry making a fool of himself over the right hand drive and sexy red fenders? Not likely he’ll forget Terry accidentally flinging a bowl of coleslaw at his chest.
If terminal embarrassment isn’t bad enough, now Terry’s had a dental disaster, leaving him with two choices: stay in agony for days, or see the new man in the practice.
Terry’s at the office by one thirty sharp. And he’s parked next to a red MG.
