(Tomato is sad) Carrot: "What's the matter, Tom?" Tom: "I don't know. I just haven't been very happy lately. Feeling a little uninspired." Carrot: "I see. Well sometimes we've just got to work with the hand we're given." Tom: "But... I don't have any hands!" (Tom burst into tears)
See? You can make a simple joke revolving around how you're feeling right now.
Haha, I guess it's sad that you can do more with my characters in two minutes than I have been able to in weeks. But you're right... I need to play off of real life, rather than trying to create situations. I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the help.
