Story of a lost journalist

Conversation between Me and Mo

Filed under: Conversation — Cris @ 22:52

So I see this mosquito playing around and I try to clap my hands – with it in between. I miss as always. The mosquito, who shall be known henceforth as Mo, flies away and finds a spot on the roof to rest.
Me: Hey come back here, it is my job as a human to kill you
Mo: And it is my job as a mosquito to escape humans and bite them hard when they are not aware
Me: That’s not your job! That’s your life!
Mo: Our job is our life
Me: Ha! That is the only job you mosquitoes do! Look at us – some of us are journalists, some docs, engineers, artists, singers, office people. What kinda jobs have you got? All of you are just biters! And not even specialized. Only human biting!
Mo: Yea but we are all just mosquitoes. We aren’t Hindu mosquitoes and Muslim mosquitoes and Christian mosquitoes
Me: Oh… you got something there. Tell you what, you will be the hero of my next story.
Mo: You humans are pathetic! You make everything a story!
Me: That’s cause we happen to be imaginative! How do you think you could talk now?
Mo: Uh… an undiscovered talent?

    • @Akshaya: But I already have my own Jim-and-me series. And I have been accused of stealing Calvanism! Jim happens to be no stuffed tiger. He is purely in me mind (Oh yea? Say that again Cris!) – err he is, well he is a good guy really.
