He and She: Fair Ferry Fare to the Fair

She: “So, you’re in Seattle?”

He: “Yeah. Business meeting. The things I gotta do to keep food in our fridge.”

She: “Uh huh. And speaking of food, you’re going to have dinner in our favorite restaurant without me? No fair!”

He: “Of course there isn’t. This is June. The fair’s not ’til August.”

She: “The county fair doesn’t count. The food thing is never fair!”

He: “Hm? I thought it was always fare! Good fare at a reasonable fare. Why else are we sparring over this?”

She: “It had better be good and reasonable. Otherwise, we say ‘fare thee well’ to the money. And we can’t afford to do that!”

He: “I know, and hey, I’m doing the best I can. I’m not renting a car on this trip, and I’m taking a ferry to the meeting.”

She: “What?!? Give it back!!

He: “OK, I’m riding a ferry to the meeting.”

She: “What’s the fare?”

He: “It’s a fair fare.”

She: “A fair ferry fare? For whom?”

He: “The state. I guess.”

She: “So is it a fair state ferry fare, or a state fair ferry fare?”

He: “The fair is not ’til August. As I’ve already stated. Or I’d give you the fare for the merry-go-round.”

She: “Sweetheart?”

He: “Yes, gorgeous?”

She: “About that plane that took you to Seattle.”

He: “Hm?”

She: “Did it give you enough oxygen?

He: “Dunno. How’s the vog in Kona today?”

    No merry-go-round … ROLLERCOASTER! Wheeee! And to be fair, I’ll even let you pay the fare and sit beside me.

    A line in my reading today — “Oral culture is in love with copia — the abundant and ready supply of inventive language.” “Scatterlings: Getting Claimed in the Age of Amnesia” — Martin Shaw.

    also “In a culture that is oral, knowledge not repeated soon evaporates.”
    and “A word is an event.”

    Muddling along — faring with you…. 🙂
