“I WRITE THE WAY I TALK”

"I write the
way I talk,"
he bragged.

"It's better,"
I said, "to
talk the way
you write,
but only if
you write.
And you don't
write, you
just talk
about writing."

"Exactly,"
he said.
"I talk the
way I write."

"So," I asked,
"you write
about talking?"

"Yes," he said.
"I am a C-E-O."

"O-I-C,"
I replied.
"You're a talker.
Not a writer."

"Exactly,"
he said.
"I write the
way I talk."

"Good for you,
I said," I said.

"Huh?"

"I talk
the way
I write."

"Oh, I get it."

"No, you don't."

"Oh, no?"

"No."
