*cue wavey dream lines*
(I walk into my parents house and Paul F Tompkins is in a wheelchair)
Me: Hey Paul what are you doing here?
Paul: Hey Jim. How are you? I'm just here for your family's pool party.
Me: Well why aren't you out at the pool?
Paul: I didn't want to ask anyone to help me outside. You know..with the wheelchair and all. It's OK though. I can hear them from here.
Me: Oh OK. Hey do you want to split the rest of this Fudgie the Whale cake with me?
Paul: Sure! And that's funny you bring up Fudgie the Whale because I was just reading an article recently about how Carvel almost went out of business.
Me: Really? Why?
Paul: I'm not sure. The article didn't say.
This is when I just kind of froze. Because I was thinking "You read an 'article' about them potentially going out of business and they didn't say why? Seems like you probably just read a blurb on Yahoo but you're trying to convince people that you read an entire article."
I found it kind of sad in a way.
Me: Hmmm. Well Paul, I'm on my way to Delaware to pick up some crawfish but have fun.
Paul: OK. Bye.
