Pausing briefly to select another tube of paint, Mynx looked apologetically at the reporter.
"Sorry, what was that you asked?"
"I just wondered at what point you knew you were an artist."
"Oh I have always known I was immensely talented." Mynx replied, waving a loaded paint brush with a flourish.
"Bullshit" a little voice seemed to come from somewhere near the easel.
"I'm sorry, but did I just hear someone say 'Bullshit'?" asked the reporter, wiping a splatter of purple from her nose.
"You sure did," continued the voice. "I called it, just like I always do when she gets too up herself."
Looking closer to the easel, the reporter could only see a small golden lizard.
"What's going on? Is this some sort of joke?"
"This always happens when you open your big mouth in company," said Mynx, putting down her brush with a sigh. "This is my companion, 'Ego', he is like my conscience, he keeps me from getting too big for my fabulous shoes."
"Truth now Mynx"
"OK, I knew I was an artist when I realised that the only way I would be happy with a painting was to start over"
"So why did you start blogging?"
"I always knew I was going to be a famous writer..."
"Mynx!" the little lizard was sounding quite cross.
"OK, blog started, scary stuff, breast lump, blah blah out into the universe, never expected to have anybody actually read it"
"And the other blog, the more, ahem, adult one, Secret Pleasures?"
"Ah, that one was started as a way to catalogue a series of stories I had written"
"And they are pretty good too." This time the golden reptile sounded proud.
"So you paint, and write about sex, anything else our readers might like to know"
"There is so much more to me than that. You never quite know what you will find on "Dribble" or my other blogs. I have a third too, "Something Extra" to show case my arty farty stuff. I do random fabulously and if all else fails, I post pictures of home baked goods"
The reporter looked over at the little lizard, who seemed to be nodding in agreement.
It should have been ridiculous to be involved in a three way interview with this Australian blogger with the amazing hair and wicked sexy laugh, and a talking lizard, but for some reason it was perfectly feasible.
Just as it was also perfectly acceptable to see a plate of delicious looking cakes and savouries appear magically, replacing the artist supplies.
"Oh look at the time" exclaimed Mynx. "Can I pour you a glass of red ?"
Thank you so much "A Daft Scots Lass" for having me here and posting my little bit of dribble.
It has been a lot of fun and I am honoured to have been invited.
