Live from Locohama S1/E4: Silky Tony’s on the line!

Got a call from the COMPANY today. It was Silky himself.

Tony: Loco, my man, how are you?

Me: Been better…what’s up?

Tony: Well, it’s that time of year again: Contract renewals!

Me: I’m in…just send it over…

Tony: Don’t you want to know about your raise?

Me: If you care to share…I know your time is valuable.

Tony: You know, Loco…sometimes I get the feeling you don’t like me very much…

Me: Tony, my man, sometimes I get the feeling it’s not your job to be liked and it’s not my job to like you.

Tony: Touché! Well, we got an extra 10000 yen for you.

Me: Thanks. Is that per year or per month?

Tony: You’re a funny guy!

Me: Can’t lose our sense of humors in this man’s land now can we?”

Tony: Truer words have never been spoken Loco…

Me: Let me ask you something, Tony.

Tony: Shoot.

Me: Student with…let’s just say mental issues…brings a knife to school and gets a slap on the wrist…

Tony: Is this hypothetical?

Me: Yeah…a student hypothetically pulled a hypothetical knife on another student and received a hypothetical slap on the wrist last week…

Tony: Ok ok ok…

Me: So…my question is: if that student pulls a knife on me and I accidently put her through a wall, what would happen to me?

Tony: Hypothetically speaking, your contract renewal and raise would become hypothetical…

Me: I see.

Tony: But, personally, Loco, I’d be behind you 100%!

Me: You don’t know how warm and fuzzy that makes me feel…

Tony: You’re a funny guy! I didn’t know that…Anyway, congratulations!

Me: Yeah, thanks. Later.

    Hey, Loco:

    Great convo. Do you have more in the archives about your relationship with silky Tony? Sounds like there could be a number of interesting stories there.

    Rubi-san, thanks…nah, only one other with him, when i introduced him a couple of weeks ago. and of course I put him in the cast credits for this season of LIL in the Lost in Lokohama intro. But, I don’t speak to him often. And the less the better. I only speak to him maybe once a month or when there’s a problem. And by the time I finish I need a shower.But i agree he is an interesting character to clash with. Maybe I even secretlyぃ

    I’ve been reading your blog consistently after you checked mine out “Ern in Tokyo”. Your writing and your adventures keep me entertained. I always look forward to reading your next installment.

    I don’t suppose “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission” applies in that situation….

    What does that mean Moogiechan? Don’t know that expression…

      yeah, he shares your namesake, but don’t worry: You are more silkier than he is…(-:
      thanks for the shout and for the soc I hope.

    Your renewal story is better than mine which is just depressing 😛 And you get a raise! Is that about 200 yen a week? Lucky!

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
