PHILIP
“So what changes for you now that they’ve decided you don’t have lung cancer?”

TONY
“Not much. It’s just a new lease on life, if you know what I mean.”

Time for a change

January 22, 2011

PHILIP
“How’s things?”

TONY
“Someone asked me what I would do if I could change my life yesterday.”

PHILIP
“What did you say?”

TONY
“I thought you would ask me that. Anyway, I told them I needed time to think about it. When it’s one of those big questions like that, you got to give it some time.”

PHILIP
“Sounds like a wise approach to me.”

Tony and Phil

TONY
“You know, Phil, our blog readers should see this great picture of you and me that Lina took the other day. Besides, it’s about time if you ask me: I don’t think you’ve ever been in a photo on the blog. Well, let me put it this way, like they always say, it’s never too late to change.”

TONY
“Now isn’t she the sweetest girl you ever met? And also she gives me change most times she comes by, but she also gives me that smile hers too. Boy I’m telling you, if I was 20 years younger, you bet I would take her home, no question. You can’t do better.”

“I see you’ve changed your sign.”

TONY
“I didn’t want the kids to feel they owed me something for just pressing old Elmo’s button.”

Change management

July 31, 2008

PHILIP
“What’s this new critter here?”

TONY
“It’s my new musical mouse, since I decided to replace Elmo. The kids were getting bored because they were getting too used to Elmo and it was time for a change anyway if you ask me.

PHILIP
“But Elmo’s still here; he’s just facing the other way now.

TONY
“Elmo’s my back-up plan, in case some kid doesn’t like my mouse.”

PHILIP
“Right.”

Dreams from the grandfather

TONY
“Hey Phil, they’re now saying it’s Obama for sure. Somebody was telling me that this is the ‘Obama Revolution’. Never thought I’d see it in my own lifetime.”

Future pain

May 28, 2008

TONY (to passerby)
Pardon me ma’am, I’m trying to get something for breakfast. Might you be able to spare some change for me?”

PASSERBY
“I’m sorry, I can’t. I would if I could.”

TONY
“No problem. By any chance, would you have any Advil on you?”

PASSERBY
“Oh yes. I’ve been getting a lot of headaches this week.

“Here you go, there’s six of them.”

TONY
“Thanks very much. I’ve got a few already, so I’ll have these for later.”
