It’s day 15 of the #TopsyTurvyTVTour over on Instagram! Yesterday catering delivered the goods from The Sweet Spot. Today Emily Swift and crew are guests on a popular TV chat show. Here we go…
(This is a derivative work based on the TV Chat Show, The Graham Norton Show.)
“Tonight on The Graham Norton Show,” the cheerful voice announced from the stage.
“Graham?” Emily clapped her hands behind the curtain where they waited. “I LOVE him!”
“It’s a packed couch! Your favorite Door to Door characters are here,” the chat host continued. “Give it up for everyone’s favorite unreliable, overconfident, and unruly protagonist, it’s Emily Swift!”
“That’s me!” Emily pushed past Templeton and dashed onto the stage. She pounced on Graham, hugging him tightly before waving to the audience. She perched on the edge of the red couch – in the spot closest to Graham.
“He’s dark, mysterious, and Emily’s nemesis, the Salesman extraordinaire, it’s Templeton!” Templeton stepped from the shadows, stiffly shaking Graham’s hand. He glared at Emily as she patted the space next to her.
“A Rabbit by any other name would be, well, Rabbit. Give it up for Emily’s ageless friend!” Rabbit hopped up into view. He gave Graham a side hug during their handshake. Grinning at the audience, he sat on the other end of the couch.
“She’s brainy, cheeky, and has a little black book bigger than mine, it’s Tara Parker-Jones!” Tara skipped out onto the stage, twirling and kissing Graham on the cheek. She wedged in between Emily and Templeton.
“And finally, it’s the saucy witch driving Templeton batty – mm hmm, she really is – it’s the fiery Lucie Bellerose!” Lucie strutted onto the stage, pausing to exchange la bise with Graham. She took a seat by Rabbit.
“So exciting! Everyone’s first time here. Now let me see, you’re promoting a new book by T.L. Brown?” Graham asked.
“Doors Wide Open, the third in the series, is out this fall,” Emily said. “We’re blowing it all wide open.”
“And dropping some bombshells,” replied Graham. “Which is the perfect segue to tonight’s musical guest. It’s Raven Xerces and Black Talons with their hit Sister Cherry from the album, Cherry Bomb!”
As the first notes rocked the studio, Rabbit jumped up from the couch and pumped his fist into the air. “Yeah!”
… Tune in tomorrow as Door to Door characters take on a “show about nothing.” (That post is now available. Click here!)
