Hello out there! My name is Sign. I'm actually a "curve in the road ahead" sign. Some of you may remember me from some skits Brucek wrote a long time ago on Booksie. I've been told they were pretty good, even made a few people laugh. I really wouldn't know. You see, I was one of the characters in those skits, and I wasn't always having the greatest time. Back then, all Brucek wanted me to do was talk to Line the whole time. He's one of the lines painted on a road. We were going along just fine, and as soon as I strayed a little from the script, Brucek got all huffy and started doing crazy things! He even wrote me out of a skit, and then later he..........

Line: Sign. What are you doing? Isn't Brucek supposed to be the one who writes the introduction?

Sign: Line? Is that you? Where are you?

Line: I'm not sure. I can't see anything.

Sign: Hold on, hold on. Give me a second. I'll fix it.

Out of nowhere, there appears a bright, hilly landscape, with a meandering two lane road running across it. There are three lines painted down the the road, and Sign is talking to the one closest to him.

Sign: There you go! Isn't this great!?

Line: Sign!! You've got arms! How did that happen?

Sign: I'm not really sure. Ever since Brucek ended the last skit, I've been stuck in that bar at the end of the road. I thought I was going to be there forever! What I think happened is that one of the other Booksie writers finally decided to take matters into his own hands.

Line: What in the world are you talking about?

Sign: I think someone who really liked those other skits decided to write a little skit of his own that gave me my arms and .................these!

Line: A notebook and a pencil?

Sign: Yep! Now I have as much power as that jerk Brucek.

Line: Uh oh............you can't be serious. You're playing with something hotter than fire, Sign.

Sign: You are so negative! I can do just about anything I want with these. Here, watch.

Sign starts writing in the notebook, and in a moment or two, far up in the sky a blimp appears. A second later there is a message on the side of the blimp.

Line: "Sign is fine"? You have the power to create anything you want, and that's the best you can do?

Sign: What do you think I am, a poet? Here, let me try again.

Sign erases part of a line and, after pausing to think for a moment, writes again. Suddenly the blimp turns into a enormous green Zepplin with purple stripes. On its side a new message appears:

Sign is so fine,

All of the time,

If you have a mind,

Don't cross the Line.

Line: Cute............and i suppose Brucek's not going to notice any of this?

Sign: What's he going to do? I've got............

Pencil: Are you done? I'm so dizzy I'm about to be sick! Can you PLEASE hold me still for a while? Ohhhhhhhh!

Notebook: He won't listen. He thinks he's some kind of writer, or something. Does he ever think about what he's doing to us? I don't want to be scribbled all over. It's disgusting. Just look what he's done to me! And his penmanship is terrible! Hey, who do you think you are, anyway!?

Sign: What!? I don't want a talking pencil and notebook! I need you two so I can write the skit the way I want to.

Notebook: Well, la di da, yadda yadda yadda! I guess you're going to have to make other plans buddy, 'cause you're not writhing on me!

Pencil: Oh!! Part of my eraser is gone! Now I really am going to be sick.

Line: Hey Sign?

Sign: Yeah?

Line: Did you ever stop and think that maybe it was Brucek that was writing this skit? Maybe he wants you to think that you're in control.

Sign: Oh no, no, no. Not this time. He's not going to pull the rug out from under my feet again.

Line: ............uh, you don't have any feet.

Sign: Whatever!

Line: Okay, I have an idea. Let's ask Pencil and Notebook here who created them, and then you'll know where you stand.

Sign: You know what? To hell with them! I'm going to use thim to write a skit that gives me a pencil and notebook that doesn't talk!

Notebook: Don't you touch me! What gives you the right?

Pencil: Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!

Sign grabs hold of Notebook and Pencil and is just about to start writing when Brucek appears holding his own notebook and pencil.

Brucek: I wouldn't do that if I were you.

Quicker than a flash of lightning, Brucek scribbles in his notebook.

Sign: Arghghghgh!! My arms!

Pencil and Notebook fall to the ground.

Brucek: Hi Line.

Line: Hey.

Brucek: Looks like Sign here's been up to his old tricks again.

Line: I tried to tell him, but he never listens.

Burcek: Well, what do you think I should do with him?

Sign: Do with me!? What do you mean, "do with me"? You took away my arms, isn't that enough?

Line: All he ever wanted was to exist. That's what I want too.

Brucek: Hmmmmmm. Let me think it over. And Sign?

Sign: What!?

Burcek: Can you please try to behave yourself?

Sign: For how long?

Brucek: Sign!

Sign: Okay, okay.

Brucek: Alright then, I'm going to go back home. Try to be nice to Pencil and Notebook while I'm gone.

Line: You got it, boss.

Brucek writes in his notebook, and suddenly..........

Brucek: "pop!"

He disappears in a puff of smoke.

Sign: You know Line, you are such a suck up.

Line: Shut up.

The End.
