A much needed interview
I have to be honest with you. May I be completely honest with you?
Thank you. But……wait…..where are my manners? You must be absolutely exhausted. Why don’t you just put your feet up here and I’ll get you a drink. What’s your pleasure?
Nice choice! Very nice choice! We’ll get along just fine!
I know that you‘re here to interview me, but I’m just too curious for my own good.
Here we are! A nice fresh bottle. On the rocks? Oh, sorry. You’ve probably seen enough rocks for one day, haven’t you? It’s a nice view from up here, but it’s a long way up, and even farther down! I’m including the depth of the ocean of course. Yes. Of course.
Do make yourself comfortable.
So sorry. Standing here holding this bottle like……Wow! I’m at a loss for words. With a wedge of lime? Really? Straight out of the bottle? Okay, if that’s how you like it. No glass? Cheers! Or, more like a dusty cowboy in the spaghetti westerns. Ha, ha straight out of the bottle! Hair of the dog that bit ya! So, sorry. I couldn’t resist. Let’s enjoy our drinks and the view. I do wish you’d let me put some iodine on those wounds. Teddy is the gentlest pup once you get to know him.
Ahhh….No, no that’s okay. I told you to make yourself comfortable.
We all have our own definition of “comfortable“ don’t we?
And “uncomfortable“ too, I suppose.
Would you like some sunscreen?
SPF 50 of course.
Ummm, of course. Of course. You can’t be expected to reach back there.
But, I have to ask.
Join you? No, but thank you. Whiskey bothers my stomach these days. Oh you mean…..I’m not sure….That’s a bit unusual.
My question? Oh right! However did you get up here? No offense but, you don’t seem to be a rock climber. I didn’t say I was. Well, you’re the one who asked me to “join you”. No, it’s fine. I’ll soon be baring my soul to you, so…..
But, however are we going to get you back up into the airplane?
