Dialog: When The Figurative Hits A Brick Wall Edition

It was just a simple test…

YOURS TRULY: Check this link and see if you can download the file: http://xx.xxxxx.com/xxxxx/xxxxx.txt. It is in an Amazon S3 Bucket.

[five minutes later]

THE LITERAL: I can open the txt file online, but can’t seem to download it.

YOURS TRULY: It won’t actually “download” because it is a text file. But as long as you can see it that means the bucket is working.

THE LITERAL: Right, but you asked me to see if I could download it. Friggin’ techies…

YOURS TRULY: You did download it, into your browser. Friggin’ luddites…

THE LITERAL: That’s crazy talk.

YOURS TRULY: I am blogging this.

Dialog: Empty Freezer Edition

YOURS TRULY: I took care of that stuff earlier today.

OTHER PARTY: Thanks for that. I’ve been out looking for elk all morning.

YOURS TRULY: Hunting season right around the corner…you stalk ’em with bow, right?


emptyfreezerYOURS TRULY: How many do you get before close?

OTHER PARTY: Normally…zero.

YOURS TRULY: [chuckles]

OTHER PARTY: [silence]
