There are limits

“Hey Phil, you know what’s mind-blowing?  It’s just that I know so many secrets from people —  it would blow your mind.”

PHILIP
“What brought that up?”

TONY
“The lady there, she just told me a story when she was young. I’ll bet you she’s never told one person until today. I don’t even know why she keeps it secret. Like my friend used to say, it wouldn’t bother my maiden aunt, what she said if you ask me.”

PHILIP
“Why did she tell you about it?”

TONY
“Sometimes you’ve  just gotta tell someone something, that’s all.”

PHILIP
“Does that mean that you’re about to tell me a secret too?”

TONY
“Not on the blog I won’t. My secrets are staying right here with me, if you know what I mean.”

Limits of imagination

PHILIP
Where’s the farthest away you’ve been in your life, like Vancouver or Florida or something?  You know, I can’t believe I never asked you about this part of your life.”

TONY
“Well, that would be the gates of Banff National Park. I’ve got no idea how I actually got there if you can believe that.”

PHILIP
“What do you mean that you don’t know how you got there? How could that be?”

TONY
“You wouldn’t believe it but I don’t remember a thing on the whole trip from when we started here in Toronto. It’s a 100% big blank, just totally.”

PHILIP
“Don’t tell me you were drunk or something.”

TONY
“Never. I was a limo driver, you know. You don’t do things like that if you’re a limo driver.”

PHILIP
“OK, let’s hear this.”

TONY
“It was pretty simple. I had a fight with my wife. She threw something at me pretty hard and pretty much the next thing you know, I’m asking the guy at the little corner store they have at Banff National Park if he could sell me a copy of the Toronto Sun. Well, he looked at me like I was crazy or something like that. So I asked him again and he looked at me strange again and said he didn’t carry the Sun but he would sell me a copy of the Banff Gazette. You can bet I was pretty surprised and so was he.”

“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.”
