Strike The Pose

"Think global, act local".

And I say: „Think global, act global".

He says: „Yeah".

And I also say: „Yeah".

We remain silent then.

We continue drinking cold beer in the tub.

A roadrunner pokes along and then a rabbit. Very lame dudes but hardly surprising

considering that kind of heat.

P. behind the neighbor's fence introduces his sister. Her name is C.

"So nice to meet you!" we respond out of the pool.

We wave our hands a little, too.

The neighbor's dog barks.

Over the fence again, P. shouts that the dog is quite ugly.

R. and I both shout „Yeah".

The neighbor walks back into the house to his sister.

Eventually R. says to me: "Don't try to be interesting, be interested".

I answer: "Yeah".

After a while I also add: "Be interesting and be interested".

R. says „Yeah".
