Murdo Girl…Pandemonium (our prompt)


The Brick House

It’s early morning at the Brick House and Murdo Girl is already in the Oblong Office. She is discovering that being Next Pres is not all pomp and circumstance. It is hard work. To help lesson the workload, she has pulled Treason off her Liaison to the Murdo Coyote detail and made her Press Secretary. That alone should take a load off. In fact, everyone seems to be settling in to their new positions. Even so, Murdo Girl feels the weight of the Nation on her shoulders and it appears to be taking its toll.

Murdo Girl: WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE FIND OUT WHO’S AT THE DOOR!!!#@! DO I HAVE TO DO ALL THIS NEXT PRES STUFF AND ANSWER THE DOOR TOO?#!@? GEEZ!!  I long for the good old days, when I was just the Little Murdo Girl.

You want me back don’t you?


The knocking stopped and Murdo Girl is able to concentrate again on the task at hand, which is organizing her Calendar. Only two weeks until the Inauguration. (We don’t have to wait until January.) Besides that, the town needs another celebration before the snow flies.

This is just a few invited guests..It might have to be a byob (bring your own beans) Inaugural Dance, but we’ll have a ball!

Inaugural Sminaugural..Let’s Dance..Long Live Next Pres

Since Murdo Girl is so deep in thought, she doesn’t notice she has a visitor until she smells him. He does not smell good, but that isn’t the only problem. The unannounced visitor who has just walked in and made himself at home in the Oblong Office is a dog. Just look at that dirty face.

What’s a Noname doggie to do?

Murdo Girl: A I!!! Where did this smelly dog come from?

A I:  As she runs up the stairs.Well, MG, I just answered the door, and whoever was knocking on it, wasn’t there. This dog ran in before I could catch him, and this note was taped to the door.

A I  hands the folded sheet of paper to MG.

To: Next Pres Murdo Girl

From: Next Dog

Please let me live at the Brick House. I used to walk kids to school every day when this was MHS. I lived in the streets during the night. I don’t like the new school.


Please don’t name me Barney. I did not vote for him.

Murdo girl: It is adapt a dog day. We will give him the best home we can, but first I want to make sure the team is all in. Owning a pet is a big responsibility and it’s going to take all of us to make sure he is treated right.

A I: What about the Queen’s Corgis and the dog named Coyote that Lav has?

Murdo Girl: Well, A I..Did you know the Queen got a new RV Carriage? She liked it so much at the Campground, she decided to stay. We’ll have her over a lot, but she’s got Papa John to help her out with the Corgis. We’ll figure out something with Coyote. Lav was supposed to stay above Sanderson’s Store, where the VP headquarters is, but I noticed she’s over here all the time.

Now A I, will you find Pico for me? We’ve got to get the ball rolling on the Inauguration and the dances.

The Queen’s New Ride


Meanwhile in the employee lounge, Sherri the Photographic Drawer and Lav are deep into their own conversation.

Lav: You really do a good job drawing photographs Sherri. You can hardly tell you don’t even use a camera. How much do you think those people who work at the Badlands make?

Sherri: What people Lav?

Lav: The people they have go out and paint them at night. That’s why they look so different in the daytime you know.

Sherri: Uh..(changing the subject) Gee Lav those are some wild shoes! Don’t you think you’re just a little overdressed? Even if this is The Brick House, We’re usually a little more casual.

Lav: Oh for sure..I’m breaking them in so I can wear them to the Inaugural dances. Are we supposed to find a date or can we just go stag? There’s really only one guy that I kinda like.

Sherri: Well, since you’re the Next VP, you should probably have an escort. Who is the guy you kind of like?

Lav: The contractor that remodeled all of our room signs.

Uhoh…Where did Noname the next dog really come from? Methinks there might be something sinister going on. Better get on it A I. Jerry said you spent all the beans on Spy stuff.


I will be back

    I might make Tuna noodle casserole later, but need a bag of potato chips.

    Yup, ran up the steep stairs two at a time. Will let you know who comes down Main St. Lots of people stop over to Mack’s Cafe for the fresh cinnamon rolls early in the morning.

      That’s right. It’s nice to live before anybody knew what healthy eating was. Just saying it will probably happen in the future.

    Lav and Next Pres, we need to talk soon.. there is something “funny” about that dog. The good news is that I hired hired Mark Sanderson to cater our parties and the Jones High School Student Counsel to decorate. I will get the band that was at the reunion dance, where you and Dean were seen together. How am I doing? Am I doing well or am I fired? Inquiring minds want to know…

      You are doing fantabulous!! Thanks for organizing it. Fun times at MHS. Dean who? Mark Sanderson is great at cooking tuna noodle casserole and that band at the reunion dance should be outstanding but I think they play mostly country songs so maybe I should trade the crown in on a hat and get more cowbells. I’m so excited to attend the inaugural.

        The crown fits fine on a cowboy hat Lav. You can have your tuna noodle casserole and eat it too!!

        You skip the story and go right to the comments don’t you Lav? I might have to talk to Uncle La for tips on how to reign you in.

    BYOB, Oblong Office, all very funny Murdo Girl. It’s very presidential to have a dog. You’re the boss. Just make an executive decision the dog stays. Maybe have a name the dog contest. All I can say MG is delagate, delagate, delagate. All good stuff MG.

      I want to talk to you about Noname since you’re the DM. That dog suffers from low self esteem. He wouldn’t hurt a flea, which is probably why he has them. I’m going to throw a doginaug for him, maybe he can play a little sniff the tail on the donkey with the Corgis. PS I kind of like the name Noname, but a contest is a good idea too.


      • scoper07 August 26, 2016 / 7:29 pm

        You are the high ranking official. Noname is great if it is what you want. I didn’t know if you were going to negotiate naming Noname with your staff so I offered a contest. I can give Noname some training that will raise his self esteem to a fleeless level.

      Where Dean was seen helping that aging Queen off the dance floor? If they play for beans tell them we’ll throw in a ham bone. I knew you were the right job for the person. Mark? What’s he making? I happen to know he puts lard in his cookies. Sherri is worried about Lav. Sorry I’m crazed!!
