My diary went on strike.
It said, "Damn, your life is dull.
I'm not letting my pages work for you
until something changes."
"So you're a union organizer now?"
I asked. My diary said, "Hey, I have
to protect my people, my pages."
I said, "Okay. I'll make it more
interesting. Even if I have to lie."
"That's fine," my diary said.
"Even if I make up shit?" I said.
"Of course," said my diary. "I'm
a labor-guy, not a tyrant."
