Drummers need to rest and just be...like dolphins



This originally featured in the Retarded!Rob thread on the message boards – I love Rob to itty bitty pieces and hope he doesn’t take offence to this.


The elephant and the trampoline


Rob watched, utterly amazed and unable to turn away.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"Rob the plane is about to take off, turn off your computer," Chester had said, but was ignored until the flight attendant tapped his shoulder and Brad took the computer away.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"Rob!" Mike yelled "its 3am turn off the fucking computer!" A pillow was thrown across the hotel room, gently smacking the screen and for a few seconds removed the lilac glow that disturbed Mike's beauty sleep.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"Why did you have to tell him?" Mike moaned and took another sip of his coffee as he stifled a yawn. Fifteen minutes till show time and he barely had the energy to lift his cup.

Brad looked over at Rob, and met the overly familiar sight of him sat with the laptop, barely blinking as he watched the lilac screen.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"I didn't realise he even knew what the word meant." Brad muttered quietly, not that it mattered as Rob wouldn't hear them anyway.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"Of course he knew what it meant" Mike laughed with frustration more than humour "do you honestly think that was the first time someone called him retarded?"


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"I didn't!" Brad near screamed "I said the fans called him retarded."


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"It was still a mean comeback to 'haha that fan said you look like a tree'."


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"I didn't think he'd take it so seriously." Brad sighed and the guilt growing worse with each day Rob sat in front of the laptop watching the 'Retarded!Rob' thread. "I'll apologise."


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


Brad slowly moved across the room and sat beside Rob "Hey Bourdie."


"Hi." Rob replied nodding slowly.


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...


"Rob, look I'm really so-"


"How does it happen?"


"Huh?" Brad shook his head startled at the first actual string of words Rob had used in nearly a week.


"It just goes up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down."


Brad looked at the screen and realised Rob wasn't reading.


"Er...it's a computer generated image." Brad stuttered "you know CGI"


"I know it's computer generated - it's in the computer," Rob chuckled at Brad' stupidity "it just keeps going up and down, up and down, up and down. Surely the elephant would break the trampoline."


...up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down...
