PHILIP
“So how are you liking the rain?”

TONY
“Are you kidding?¬† You gotta be sorry for the kids. I can tell you, when I was a kid, we always had snow for Christmas. Of course, we didn’t have global warming back then, if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“Hey lazy-bones.”

TONY
“You talking to me?”

PHILIP
“Yup.”

TONY
“Did you just call me ‘lazy-bones’?”

PHILIP
“Yup.

TONY
“Are you being ironic?”

PHILIP
“Yup.”

Coulda woulda shoulda

PHILIP
“Where’d you go after I saw you last night?”

TONY
“Well I sat at that drug store until almost 3 o’clock. You want to know how much I made in 6 hours?”

PHILIP
“How much?”

TONY
“$7.50′”

PHILIP
“And then what?”

TONY
“I went and slept up in the park there.”

PHILIP
“It was cold.”

TONY
“I know that’s for sure.”

PHILIP
“You couldn’t find anywhere else?”

TONY
“I’m telling you, Phil, if I could’ve, I would’ve.”

Ooops, I did it again

TONY
“I hear you put in the blog the thing I said about Edmonton having a dry cold.”

PHILIP
“Yup. Funny, eh?

TONY
“It sort of reminds me of when I was a kid. I actually kind of liked¬† it when it was really, really cold.”

At least it’s a dry cold

December 14, 2009

PHILIP
“Did you hear about Edmonton? Their temperature dropped to -46 degrees [-51 F]. Now that’s cold.”

TONY
“But you gotta remember it’s dry cold. And I know the difference, if you know what I mean.”

Am I tough enough for it?

December 13, 2009

PHILIP
“Cold enough for you?”

TONY
“You gotta admit too, I’m tough enough for it. Not many people can say that, if you know what I mean.”

So sad

December 8, 2009

TONY
“You got any smokes?”

PHILIP
“Hey mn, you know I don’t smoke.”

TONY
“What do you mean … I’ve seen you smoking.”Hell, you;ve had one with me the other day, for god’s sakes.”

PHILIP
“Well, that’s kinda my point. I don’t carry smokes. I bum ’em off you or someone. Even you. You know that.”

TONY
“Well right now, I gotta admit, I wish you smoked.”

PHILIP
“Too bad; so sad.”

I don’t want to talk about it

December 6, 2009

TONY
“I slept outside last night.”

PHILIP
“I thought you had something lined up.”

TONY
“So did I.”

PHILIP
“What happened?”

TONY
“I don’t even want to talk about it.”

Whatsup?

PHILIP
Things are getting weirder and weirder if you ask me.”

TONY
“Did I ask you?”

PHILIP
“Sorry, but our Prime Minister getting a unprecedented public rebuke from the Chinese Premier, now that’s something. It’s another nail, as they say.”

TONY
“I’m getting that you don’t like this guy Harper.”

PHILIP
“Personally, I don’t know if I like him. I’ve never met him. But politically? He’s dangerous, if you ask me.

TONY
“How about we talk about something else?

PHILIP
“OK. What?”
