Have I related to you before that I took a correspondence course in journalism? It was a short one, introduced locally. I was aware the school has international links that back then I thought it would be my stepping stone to the world of news coverage.
Nope! That did not materialize. Another wishful thinking from the thousands I possessed since childhood. 😀
Anyway, I tried my first interview this morning. I decided to do a one on one talk with my cat. Yeah, you read that correctly!
Here’s an excerpt:
belsbror: You sit here today as my guest of honor. Do you have something to say before I ask you questions?
fry: meow (licking its right paw)
belsbror: That was short but I understand why. Do you like living here with me?
fry: (looking straight at me) meow (then turning head from left to right)
belsbror: Is that a no? Or does your neck hurts like mine?
fry: meow (strangely nodding slowly)
belsbror: Hmmm! I am confused. Is that your answer to the first or second question?
fry: hmmm (mimicking my sound)
belsbror: Do you want to eat now?
fry: meow, meow, meow (possibly a resounding yes)
belsbror: This interview is not finished, I want to ask you more questions?
fry: (turning head from left to right once more)
belsbror: You are hungry? Can’t wait, aren’t you?
fry: (head nodding repeatedly)
belsbror: Okay, one last question. Do you like me?
For an answer, fry suddenly jumped straight at my right hand, grabbing the newly-fried fish in a flash, running outside the door to a hidden spot.
The interview has ended.
