The good and the great

November 24, 2011

This conversation happened around the time I learned of Tony’s limo-driving past:

PHILIP
“You were saying before what happened when you got your limo stuck in the snow. Did you have any passengers?

TONY
“Yup I sure did. She was an important one but I didn’t ever figure out who she really was. Anyway, she was out in theĀ  flash of a dog’s tail, and helped us push the car out. And she was a strong one but she destroyied her nice shoes. And then we laughed about it whe I drove her to the hotel. Now that was fun. She was great.”

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.”
