Father knew best

December 29, 2010

PHILIP
“I’ve never asked you about your dad; what did he do for a living?”

TONY
“Oh he was a highway mechanic, fixing rigs when they broke down mostly.”

PHILIP
“That’s got to be one lonely job.”

TONY
“And lonely.”

PHILIP
“Dangerous, I bet.”

TONY
“Hot in the summer.”

PHILIP
“Weren’t you trained as a car mechanic?”

TONY
“Yeah, but I was never as good as my dad.”

Here I stand — I can do no other

PHILIP
“Would you call yourself stubborn?”

TONY
“Some people would say that and I’m not disagreeing with them. You got to be stubborn to stay in this business, that’s no joke.”

PHILIP
“So what would happen if you weren’t stubborn then?”

TONY
“I guess I would be even more homeless or something.”

They call him the sneak

TONY
“I’ll just say that Santa Claus just kind of snuck up on everybody this year. I wasn’t expecting it, that’s for sure.”

Up where he belongs

PHILIP
“Hey, where did you sleep last night? I think they said it was going down to -20C with the windchill.”

TONY
“I got lucky. My friend let me use a bed in their house so it was OK. It even wasn’t in the basement, so it was pretty toasty too.”

Killer brand preference

December 10, 2010

TONY
“Look what some guy handed me just before I got on the bus last night: a full pack of Peter Jackson’s. “Pretty good, eh?”

PHILIP
“Are they the best?”

TONY
“Well if I had to choose, that would be Export A’s. But lots of folks can’t handle those ones. Those are the real killers if you ask me.”

A sure thing

TONY
“Excuse me.”

PHILIP
“What?”

TONY
“I said ‘excuse me’.”

PHILIP
“Oh. Why?”

TONY
“Just burped, that’s all.”

PHILIP
“I didn’t hear it with all the traffic and everything.”

TONY
“Just wanted to be sure just in case, if you know what I mean.”
