One Fine Day
Jonathan. You know the scuttlebutt was that you were lost
Michael. Ha if only
Jonathan. Dear fellow what ever do you mean?
Michael. Some would say that we are all lost in a river of dreams and in the silence no one hears your screams.
Jonathan. Quite right you are, perhaps we should get a bite to eat
Michael. And where in the dickens should we go
Jonathan. Well I believe there’s a new coffee house around the corner
Michael. Splendid idea
Arriving at the coffee house
Michael. Well good morning miss Chadwick
Miss Chadwick.. Morning to you both, lovely morning isn’t it?
Jonathan. Yes quite
Miss Chadwick. And what have the two on you got planed for the day then
Michael. Well I thought a spot of coffee and a bite to eat, then maybe a game of golf perhaps.
Jonathan. Hardly, I believe it’s a nice day for coffee and then a movie
Miss Chadwick. Well gentlemen both sound great I’m sure you will enjoy whatever you choose.
Michael. Yes quite
Jonathan. And what have you got planed for today Miss Chadwick?
Miss Chadwick. Well I must dash down the mail shop and post a letter, then perhaps a spot of gardening
Michael. Sounds nice.
Miss Chadwick. Well I shouldn’t hold you up any longer, good day Gentlemen
Michael. Yes, good day Miss Chadwick.
Jonathan. Have a lovely day
Miss Chadwick. Indeed I will, bye
Waitress. Hello and what could I get you gentlemen today?

Michael. And I’ll have a salad sandwich on rye bread and hold the mayo and an espresso thank you
Waitress. Ok gentlemen if you take a seat, I’ll bring your order over shortly
Jonathan. Well Michael where should we sit?
Michael. I would say by the window would be nice
Jonathan. Did you see in the morning paper that the government intends the increase the level of income tax by 3 percent in the next six months?
Michael. No I hadn’t seen the paper for the day.
Jonathan. Michael you should pay more attention to things, they’ve found two new moons in the rings of Saturn as well I believe.
Michael. Really and how does that affect the going on’s of the day?
Jonathan. Whatever do you mean Michael?
Michael. Well out of sight, out of mind. If you hadn’t brought it up I wouldn’t of known about it.
Jonathan. Michael. You’ll never learn about current affairs and culture living in a shoebox. (Smile)
Michael. Jonathan you never learn culture in the paper either, culture is found in the gallery, or museum not the paper, (laugh)
Jonathan. And when was the last time you visited the opera? (Gesture)
