Interest Drabble Challenge Redo 020/150

Yesterday was not a good day to be writing. Hence, I am redoing my Colbert Report interest, because I did not do it justice. I quite like this drabble, actually.

Inside the Colbert News Room

Tap, tap, tap; eraser on legal pad. Stephen massaged his forehead and sighed.

Quietly chuckling and grinning ear to ear, this is how he works: struggling before an empty tablet, sorting through the numerous news segments, trying to find the cream of the shit-crop.

After careful contemplation, he moves in to harvest and eviscerate each fault with the tip of his No. 2 Ticonderoga pencil.

He was still laughing to himself when Bobby walked in.

“Good Newsday?” Bobby asked.

Steven looked up with a cheerful glint in his eye, and said, “Spectacular. These days my job is all too easy.”

And that's how I see it happening, folks. Honestly, I don't know why, but Colbert really strikes me as a Ticonderoga kind of guy.

Ugh. I'm dehydrated, and I think I need a nap. Someone hug me.
