“You haven’t done a ‘Buzz’ in a while,” he said.

“I know.” I answered. “Been busy doing the other things I do. It’s a busy time of the year here, what, with the Bethpage Best of L.I. results being tabulated and all, and me building a new website to list the winners.”

“Yeah, no, I know, but if you could do a new one, you should.”

“Ok. What do you want it to be about?”

“Well, you normally pick them…”

“Yeah, no, I know, but give me an idea… Funny, acrobatic, scientific… Like, what kind of story or video… Magic? Music? Dance? Driving? Near-death experiences? Porn?…”

“No, haha, not porn. Um. Maybe something cool.”

“Yeah, great, that narrows it down. Why don’t you just suggest ‘Something in English’ while you’re at it.”

“Haha ok, so, like, maybe a video…”

“Go on…”

“Like of something. Like, something normal, but filmed really pretty.”

“Like what?”

“Like… I dunno… Horses.”


“Yeah, horses. Just really nicely filmed, and like, the sound of horse activities, and birds, and just, serenity. Like, the day in the life of a horse. But pretty and sounding amazing and soothing.”

“Uh. Ok. That’s pretty specific. But I’ll see what I can find.”

“Ok, cool. That’d be — Oh, and a dog! Put a dog in there.”

“I’m not going to FILM a video you know, I’m just going to put UP a video.”

“No, haha, yeah, I know. I mean, a dog in there would be cool.”

“Ok. Weirdo.”

“Haha, yeah, no I’m serious.”

“So am I.”

“Haha, ok. Let me know.”

“I will.”

(The best part of this whole dialog? Made it all up. Needed to justify the randomness of the stupid horse video I’m posting about.)

Best watched with headphones on.
