Hey, Billy. Whatcha doing?
“Thoughts on my Ass!”
Why did that name stick?
“Why does anything happen? Look what I got!”
He was Tron.
“Was he Tron, or was Tron a thing or something?”
I didn’t see it.
“Me neither. Uh…”
The car movie.
“Where they’re fast and furious?”
No, he invented a car? And then General Motors had him shot?
“Wait, that sounds familiar. Yeah. Edsel: A Man and his Dream.”
I thought we were playing Yelling Out Instruments.
“He played piano. Had a duo act with a potato that also played piano.”
That wasn’t a potato: that was Beau Bridges.
“I’m pretty sure that was a potato.”
No, that’s what Beau Bridges looks like.
“The Fabulous Bridges Boys.”
“And he played King Kong.”
He was in King Kong, and you probably shouldn’t bring it up to him. Actually, you shouldn’t talk about that movie at all today.
“Huh. That the Trade Center?”
“Ohhh, yeah. They changed the end.”
Moved the action downtown. So, you know: the planes are flying at the Towers and swooping around.
“You sure that’s not Harambe?”
