the conversation, part 2

part two of four

tell me something about yourself

i like dogs

and do you like cats also?

no, not so much

i think that's kind of sad

i don't understand cats - they are just - you know

gentlemen prefer blondes

don't you just know it?

just yesterday a man approached me on the street

did he zero in on you like an alligator?

i had a hard time understanding him

they all just want one thing

a lady knows how to put them in their place

it's a terrible thing to have to say

perhaps we should talk of other matters

my sentiments exactly

it was too bad what happened to that girl in arizona

arizona is no place for young girls

except when the circus is in town

quite right

confusion follows the circus wherever it goes

yesterday can never quite catch up

but you know what people are like, they want their fun

and the devil knows how to give it to them

sad but true

listen - you can hear them laughing in hell right now

the conversation, part 1

part one of four

how are you this evening?


i am very glad to hear that

you are very kind

why do you say that?

why should i not say that?

perhaps i did not express myself very well

why do you say that?

recently i read a very interesting book

what was it about?

high jinks

that sounds extremely interesting

it was just what the doctor ordered

do you have experience in this area?

all bets are off - save yourself and run for the hills!

i have already been saved - many times

have you been snatched from the lion's jaws?

in the most glorious fashion imaginable

i like all different types of music

so do i, especially if they are out of fashion

exactly why are you here?

because the night air fills me with regret

the night is young, so they say

perhaps we can continue this conversation somewhere else

that would be a zero sum game

virtue, they say, is out of fashion
