It occurs to me that my previous post ought to read "inner MONOlogue" but as I often tell M, there is a perfect version of me living inside my head & we are great friends. So, "dialogue" works too.
More random dialogue:
Z: Did you know they tried to make a video game out of Dirty Dancing?
Me: Did you know they tried to make a movie out of it too? That didn't work out either.
Z: Roadhouse would have made a better videogame. Or To Wong Foo.
He has a point, really.
