Joy riding with Pierre Trudeau

April 20, 2011

PHILIP
“So are people talking about the election much?”

TONY
“Some are sometimes but you know that Jack Layton guy, I’m getting to like him more and more. He really cares about people. But I’ll tell you the one  I liked the best was Mr. Pierre Elliott Trudeau. No question about that. Now there was a guy who was concerned about, you know, ordinary folks.  A very nice and decent man too.”

PHILIP
“How do you know all this?  Did you meet him or something?”

TONY
“Did I meet him? I drove him and and Margaret around in my limo.”

“Hey Phil, did you remember to get me the Advil by any chance?”

PHILIP
“Oh crap!  I forgot it again. OK, I give in. Here’s five bucks; you buy some.”

TONY
“Phil, I can wait, you know.”

PHILIP
“Don’t I know it.”

TONY
“You know, sometimes I think I must be pretty tough.”

PHILIP
“How come not all the time?”

TONY
“I don’t know but I guess I am.”

PHILIP
“You bet you are. I’ll tell you for sure … I can’t imagine me surviving living how you’ve had to live.”

TONY
“I can’t either, if you know what I mean.”

TONY
“You know the Twitter that you use for telling people what you’re thinking at work? You should tell people about it. and then they’ll be able to read your opinions instead of my opinions all the time well, most of the time anyway.”

PHILIP
“Sure, I’d love to do that.” [http://www.twitter.com/sternthinker]

Absolute truth

April 7, 2011

PHILIP
“Did you know that the Flames are out of the playoffs?”

TONY
“Now why would you even know that, if I may ask?”

PHILIP
“I have no idea why I know that, you know. It’s true though, eh?”

TONY
“Yup, that’s the absolute truth. You know, I feel bad for the Calgarians — they’re nice people.”

Wheels that spin and spin

TONY
“I met this guy today. I never spoke with a more angry guy in my whole life, Phil. Man he was a hard one.”

PHILIP
“What did he say or what did he talk about?”

TONY
“Well, he couldn’t stop talking about how bicycles were taking over the city, and you couldn’t drive a car anywhere even though car owners paid all the taxes. He just couldn’t stop and he just kept on saying stuff about bikes. You should have heard this guy. Blah blah blah, I’m telling you.
