Him: Since I am re-doing my web site I thought we'd jump-start things by asking you questions.
Me: Sure, shoot. Wait, wait. Am I asking you questions, or are you asking me?
Him: I am conducting this interview with you. I ask. You answer.
Him: So do you like being you?
Me: You ought to know.
Him: Are you going to be a hostile witness?
Me: What, am I on trial, or something?
Him: Kind of.
Me: For what?
Him: For your life.
Me: I don't have to take this. What about you? What about... what is... your favorite food?
Him: What do you think?
Him: Hey, that's right. With sausage and home made sauce and...
Me: And a little rice vinegar to add tang. And fresh chopped kale and herbs.
Him: Garlic. Lots of garlic.
Me: I never understood garlic when I was a kid.
Him: That's funny, me neither. Don't you think there are some foods that are just plain adult foods?
Me: Totally. Like persimmons, what's up with those? And quince. Egg plant.
Him: Oh, man, I am pretty sure those are alien implants or something.
Me: What about okra?
Him: Ooo-hooo-hooooooooooooooooooo! Slime me with a spoon. Those are so alien it's not even debatable.
Me: So, what were we talking about?
Him: I don't know. Dinner?
Me: Hey, let's go make some spaghetti.
Him: Right on! But no foodstuffs from outer space.
Me: Got it.
