Brewer and I were IMing. I’m not going to link him because I link him enough and he’s a big quitter anyway. Anyway, here is our IM conversation in which we created a ridiculously long dialogue between Erik and a passer-by while Erik is walking Franklin:
Guy: What’s franklin like?
Erik: Well, he’s actually pretty frugal.
Guy: Your dog is frugal?
Guy: Because he doesn’t spend much money?
Erik: That’s right – he doesn’t spend much. Hardly any at all really.
Guy: Don’t you think he doesn’t spend money because he is a dog, and not because he is frugal?
Erik: I don’t see what you mean.”
Guy: He is a dog.
Guy: So he doesn’t spend money.
Erik: No, he doesn’t spend MUCH money. Hardly any in fact. I can’t remember the last time he even got out his wallet.
Guy: He has a wallet?
Erik: Of course he has a wallet! Where would he keep his money?
Guy: Where does he keep his wallet?
Erik: I’m not sure, I haven’t seen him take it out in a while. It isn’t polite to talk about money with friends.
Guy: But it’s your dog.
Erik: I know. He’s sensitive.
Guy: I thought you said he is frugal?
Erik: He’s many things to many different people.
Guy: What does that even mean?
Erik: So frugal people can’t be sensitive? Jeez, you’re an asshole. Now, if you’ll excuse me, Franklin and I are off to by a race car.
Guy: I thought you said he is frugal!
Erik: Oh he is. I am the Spendy Spenderson. Franklin will be telling me the whole time about how we should get the least expensive race car possible.
