You know what. My social life’s pretty non-existent. This really is the closest to a deep, meaningful conversation I’ve had since high school. Well, actually, make that kindergarten. I think the last one must’ve been about how they get the holes in Swiss cheese.
Seriously? Gee, I hope he’s not the guy I’ve been trying to catch. This farmer hired me to find out who’s been dumping garbage on his farm. Most of it’s food waste.
How the heck can you eat then? And how can you even taste?
I got another question I’ve been dying to ask. Who made you?
Heh. I agree with you on that point, Glad-One. I do need more freaking friends, but that’s never gonna happen with my work schedule. And before you tell me to cut back or take a break, I can’t without losing out on my income. I need every cent I got to afford my meds, so I don’t mutate back into, as your “dad” put it, an “overgrown bug with a mustache”.
Y’know, some of that garbage smelt of smoke…
* Almost gives up on waiting and goes back to work. *
Oh, c’mon! You must know! You must’ve been made with a purpose in mind!
I kind of thought you’d been built by Scaramouche since you call him dad. Why is that, anyhow?
Aaaw... That's a shame to hear, Mr. Max! But don't worry! I can be your friend instead! <3
Though, what's so bad about turning into a bug?
I honestly don't know! There's--
There are a lot of things I...
Do not know.
As for daddy, it's simple;
We met in this strange place. He took me under his wing, he takes care of me, gives me toys, gives me affection. He looks out for me and comforts me, even tries his best to protect me! He loves me as if I were his own!
In the end, isn't that exactly what a good father does for their child?
Aww, gee, Glad-One. You really know how to comfort a guy.
Y'know, I don’t know what’s more depressing. The fact that even a walking talking metal soccer ball can’t think of any perks to being a bug, or the fact that’s the only friends invite I’ve had in years.
Huh. Scaramouche sounds like a pretty decent guy. He's sure more attentive than my dad. Jeez, he always had his nose buried in some book or other, breaking his back over a work case.
I always remember my graduation at law school. My dad spent the whole ceremony with a freaking laptop on his knees. They weren’t that common in those days, so this was a big chunky thing that got hot real quick. He was wearing thick pants, but it still left him with second-degree burns.
Some of them got infected and he died a couple weeks afterwards.
I can’t help thinking that if I’d flunked out of law school, he would’ve still been alive today…
Ah, yes. That's what I was talking about! Nothing else! Definitely not! Preposterous idea, really!
Though, now that you mention it... Good things about being a bug;
The ability to fly! Lots more limbs, that's exciting! Cool mandibles that go click click click! Antennae, because who needs a nose?!
I'm very sorry about your dad, however. :(
its not your fault it sounds like the man was working himself into an early grave anyway
if anything it was just bad timing
At least he got to see you graduate! And even if he wasn't able to say it, I bet he was proud to see you...do graduation stuff! Catching the bouquet, punching a kangaroo, holding up the belt, throwing it into the screaming crowd...
Awww that's a shame, no wings! But hey! With those extra hands, you'd be a stellar juggler!
Oh uh, well... Couple times a week, that's...
thats pretty sad and thats coming from me
But that's okay! Now that I'm your friend, I can help you feel better!
Right you are, Mr. Max! No high school graduations for me! Actually, before coming to Pandora, the only thing I had experienced was... being stuck in a place full of snow. I imagine high school graduations are much more festive and fun!
Country? Eh, er...
*only two minutes of pondering and retyping this time*
I was on a train, not a spaceship! And definitely not in space! I think the place outside of the train was... red? And... dusty? Yeah that sounds about right.
I'd enjoy hearing about your experiences with alien tech, though! And not just because I like hearing things!
It’s all right, One-One. You don’t have to get me any money. I was just being sarcastic.
Though I’m not so much interested in buying anything as taking a long, long, LONG break from work. Well, okay, I’d love a car like I had back home. Hey, I have a picture of her right here.
What d’you think? She’s beautiful, huh? I called her Erica. She was the closest thing I had to a friend… A wife, daughter, aunt…
You ever thought about being made into something else? I can’t imagine being a little ball with stubby legs is much fun. You could have yourself built into a car like Erica… Or what about a tank? Impressive!
Hey broskis. Sorry I've been borderline AWOL for the better part of a year. Things have been a little meh and I feel like I'm stretched so damn thin right now. I wanna come back and write with you guys again, but idk when that's gonna be. Hope you're all doing well. <3
