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 the  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.”

In the early morning rain

PHILIP
“I saw that they’re calling for rain for two days starting Wednesday morning.”

TONY
“Oh boy, well it gets me shivering just thinking about it. You know, it’s sometimes just better just to have it snow even when it’s cold too. It looks nicer, that’s one thing that’s for sure.”

PHILIP
“So how are you liking the rain?”

TONY
“Are you kidding?  You gotta be sorry for the kids. I can tell you, when I was a kid, we always had snow for Christmas. Of course, we didn’t have global warming back then, if you know what I mean.”

TONY
“Look at the sidewalk here. All that shovelling. I did it myself when I got here.”

PHILIP
“Good job. That’s very nice of you.”

TONY
“Well, they let me sit outside their cafe all day and they don’t bother me. Of course, I buy coffee from them too sometimes. So it’s a mutual thing, if you know what I mean.”
