Monster Interview: Lady Edna
(Edna specifically asked me to use this picture of her in her younger days.)
TheMonster is proud to present Miss Edna of the blogging team Margie and Edna. The ladies are sisters and the oldest residents of Jericho, Kansas but they have much more to talk about than Jericho these days.
Margie and Edna are now bloggers. Be sure to drop by their basement for a visit.
Welcome to TheMonster, Miss Edna. This is quite an honor. May I say your sister, Margie, declined to join us. She mentioned cleaning her basement.
My first question is about your blog, Margie and Edna's Basement. What is the purpose of your blog?
Edna: First off, let me just say that I’m not surprised that Margie didn’t want to be interviewed with me. She never was any good at sharing the spotlight.
Now, on to your question. The purpose of our blog is to share our wit, wisdom, and insight with everyone on the Interwebs. I swan, I never saw so many people in need of guidance in all my born days. I think if more people read our blog, the world would be a much better place.
I understand that you and Margie are quite interesting sisters. For example, I've heard that Margie locks men in her basement and that her next conquest is going to be Jensen Ackles of Supernatural. How do you feel about that, Miss Edna?
Edna: Well, I’m an interesting person, I don’t know if you can say the same about my sister. She tells some interesting stories, I suppose. As for that poor Jensen Ackles, all I can say is that someone had better warn his Mama to keep an eye on him. When my sister sets her sights on some poor man, the best he can do is run and hide.
You sisters invented Special Tea. I hear that's powerful stuff. Do you and your sister imbibe?
Edna: Margie is the one who came up with that recipe, I have to give her some credit. However, we do not “imbibe,” as you put it. We do, however, take spirits for medicinal purposes. And some days need more medicine than others, that’s all I’m going to say.
I don't mean to put you on the spot, Miss Edna, but is it true you have a gentleman friend named Sawyer? Is he in the basement too?
Edna: My lands, I would never keep any of my gentlemen friends in the basement like my deranged sister does! As for Sawyer, well…right now he’s on an island in the Pacific. That’s the only place he’s safe from my sister—he’s better off tangling with polar bears and smoke monsters than he is trying to deal with her.
Just a moment. I was just handed a note from your sister. It says,"Edna is a lying liar. She's a dimwit who shouldn't be allowed out in public. Nobody will read your old blog if you interview her.
My goodness, Miss Edna, may I have a closing comment from you about this?
Edna: She’s just jealous because no matter what she does or says, I will always be younger than she is. It’s hard to get over that kind of defeat.
Let me just say that it has been a thrill to be interviewed for your blog. I wish you well in your blogging dear, you have done quite a good job so far. Keep up the good work!
Many thanks to the delightful Miss Edna for being our guest. I'm sure Margie will have plenty to say about it.
