Writers Block of Cheese

I wanted to write a post tonight, but could not think of a thing to say. But then I got an IM from Scott. He asked if I had read his latest post. I had. It was a good one. I told him so and that he ought to write more often. From that point our IM exchange went like this:

scottmonkeyboy77 9:46 pm: i have bdd

danthemanimal 9:48 pm: bdd?

scottmonkeyboy77
9:48 pm: blogger deficit disorder. find it hard to write stuff everyday.

danthemanimal
9:48 pm: agree

scottmonkeyboy77
9:49 pm: you come up with killer posts all the time.

danthemanimal
9:49 pm: nah. but thanks
danthemanimal
9:49 pm: I've hit a bit of a block lately

scottmonkeyboy77
9:49 pm: guess you can always write about cheese

danthemanimal
9:50 pm: good idea. it's a challenge. Tonight I write about cheese.

scottmonkeyboy77
9:51 pm: block of cheese. turning writers block into gourmet cheese
scottmonkeyboy77
9:51 pm: and the style is cheesy of course

danthemanimal
9:51 pm: writers block of cheese

scottmonkeyboy77
9:51 pm: sounds tasty

And then as usual our conversation flipped to a totally different subject. Absolutely no segue. It is important to note however, that we are both "fathers of daughters" with three girls each.

scottmonkeyboy77 9:53 pm: you gonna try again for a son

danthemanimal
9:55: that would require lots of debate... I think we're done... for now

scottmonkeyboy77
9:56 pm: yup.

danthemanimal
9:56 pm: you going for boy?

scottmonkeyboy77
9:57 pm: i don't think so.

danthemanimal
9:58 pm: get a dog

scottmonkeyboy77
9:58 pm: or a penguin
scottmonkeyboy77
9:59 pm: go write the cheese report

So there you go. A post about an IM chat between to guys talking about cheese, babies and penguins... The Cheese Report. Was it any gouda?

******
In fairness to Scott I have changed his IM name here to keep him from getting unsolicited IM's. I'll let you guess if mine is real or not.

Ahhh, the power of cheese. Hell, you even worked in a monkey reference.

I had a dog named Colby. But I've never had a penguin.
