The way of perfection

October 31, 2011

Over the last five years, Tony and I spoke many times about Halloween; three instances found their way into the blog.  He once told me that Halloween was the perfect holiday for kids because “they aren’t forced to go to church for that one”.

PHILIP
“When are you going to Vancouver?”

TONY
“Well I’ve got to make some money first. The bus is pretty expensive, but I think it’s less expensive than the plane.

“Anyway, my nephew says he can get some work for me so I can make some extra money for the trip.”

PHILIP
“So when are you going?”

TONY
“Depends. I’ve got to get the money first. But I can tell you I need a holiday — haven’t had one in ten years. Plus I’ve never seen the ocean.”

PHILIP
“Never in your whole life?”

TONY
“Nope. Never have; always wanted to. This is my chance; I’ve gotta do it.”

PHILIP
“You know it’s a holiday on Monday?”

TONY
“Yeah, that’s that new holiday, Family Day, isn’t it?

PHILIP
“Ooops. Sorry. I shouldn’t have mentioned it.”

TONY
“Don’t worry. It’s not like I don’t think about it.”

TONY
“I think it’s time for a holiday for me.”

PHILIP
“I’ve never heard you say that before … where are you going?”

TONY
“I’m gonna go out to Vancouver. I’ve got a friend and he’s going out there for a job with a bus line. He figures I could get some work there with him too. Anyway, I haven’t had a holiday in a while.”
