PHILIP
“How goes?”

TONY
“Just to tell you frankly, Phil, I’m feeling like hell, if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“Don’t worry, I believe you. What happened?”

TONY
“That’s my birthday for you, I’ll tell you. Folks came by and gave three cakes, one of those pies and I also got this bottle of wine too. So you know what the worst part is?¬†¬† The worst part of it is, you know, I don’t even drink normally, but I went and drank that one and I don’t remember anything about the last night or anything. My headjust¬† feels like I got a whole road crew inside it. Thank God that girl had some Advils for me.”

Our fourth birthday

October 24, 2010

PHILIP
“You know, this is our fourth birthday.”

TONY
“You mean the blog?”

PHILIP
“Yup. We’ve made nearly five hundred posts and we’re closing in on 250,000 visitors. Pretty good, eh.”

TONY
“You know, I didn’t expect it to last this long. But I’m glad people like it, that’s for sure. Now all I gotta do is get myself somewhere to live and we can do some other blog. When that’s going to happen, I’ve got no idea.”

PHILIP
“So you want to keep going?”

TONY
“Sure, why not.”

PHILIP
“Me too.”

TONY
“Hey Phil. Do you like my new jeans. I got them for myself for my birthday. My figuring is I look a little sexier, don’t you think?”

PHILIP
“Sexier wasn’t the word that came to mind, actually.”

TONY
“You could at least say something nice. It’s my birthday you know.”

TONY
“Oh Phil, you should tell the blog readers that I’m having my birthday on Thursday [Feb. 26th]. You’ll see, I’ll be on the sidewalk with my special birthday balloon and everything.

“Sixty, it’s pretty freaky.”

TONY
“You look like you’ve been hit by a Mac truck.”

PHILIP
“Feels like it a bit.”

TONY
“What happened?”

PHILIP
“Drug reaction, I think.”

TONY
“Didn’t I tell you to stay away from drugs.”

PHILIP
“It was cold medicine, for God’s sake. I think I had some sort of weird interaction problem.”

TONY
“What happened?”

PHILIP
“I called a friend in New York to go out for a coffee. I thought it was his birthday.”

TONY
“Did you at least tell him happy birthday?”

PHILIP
“I can’t remember. I can’t even remember calling him.”

TONY
“So how do you know you called him?”

PHILIP
“He sent me an email asking if I was OK.”

TONY
“Well you seem OK now. A Mac truck can sure take a lot out of you, though.”

PHILIP
“Very funny. Can I get you a coffee?”
