“You tell him.”

“No, you tell him.”

“Remember what happened the last time. Stop laughing so hysterically, it wasn’t that funny.”

“Oh come on, man, it wasn’t funny, it was hilarious! You beat every record for the “castle to river marathon”.”

“And embarrassing – thanks to your Youtube posting. Everywhere I go, I hear the people doing the guitar riff from “Smoke on the Water.”

“Man, we got a million hits in the first day!”

“Anyways, it’s your turn to tell him. And, you will notice I brought my film crew along.”

“Hey, that’s not fair. That’ll get you to Cannes or Toronto.”

“Too bad, you started it. Or should I say “kickstarter”ed it. So, come on, go tell him.”

“Well maybe he’ll notice on his own. Or maybe it’ll stop. Or maybe . . . “

“No excuses . . .  You go tell him. It is your turn”

“Grandpa, excuse me, Grandpa . . . you’re smoking in your sleep again.”



“Wow, I think he’ll break my record!”
