Dialogues: Persimmon Talk

I like to describe this as 'mostly true'. I did actually go out and do interviews. However, I didn't let the pesky details of reality get in the way of telling a good story.

Andrew: Hi.

Dema: Hi. Whatcha got there.

Andrew: It's a persimmon.

Dema: A persimmon.

Andrew: Yes.

Dema: What, pray tell, are you doing, standing there with a persimmon in your hand and a stupid grin on your face?

Andrew: I'm preparing to do some interviews.

Dema: Interviews.

Andrew: Yes, interviews. Concerning persimmons.

Dema: Why?

Andrew: I don't know. I'm hoping I'll be able to write an article about what happens.

Dema: Why would anybody want to read about persimmons?

Andrew: I'm damned if I know.

Christmas on Other Planets

I think I wrote this originally because I had writer's block, and I wanted to break it by writing something -- anything! Since then it's appeared on a dozen internet joke lists, always without attributing the author. Oh well.
