A Conversation

Can you paint a submarine pink?

Sailors would hate it, I think.

Like sardines in a boat.

I'd rather swim than float.

A yacht is more to my liking.

I'd rather go mountain biking.

Do you know what the future holds?

I only care about driving my Olds.

Some people dream of going to the tropics.

That's a very sensitive topic.

Others prefer four seasons.

There must be a reason.

Going through life haphazardly

Who would condone half assedly?

Things can get out of control.

Not when you are on a roll.

Why are barriers created that shouldn't be?

Wrong or outdated beliefs are the key.

Have you memorized the Serenity Prayer?

I'm completely unaware.

How do you find your purpose?

You could join the circus.

Can you forecast the future?

I have a computer.

What do you see?

What will be. Will be.
