Let’s have a conversation together, shall we? I feel that we have never really had the chance to just talk, you know? Sure, comments can be left behind in one’s passing wake, but these are telltale marks, much like instant messages read hours or days after the event has taken place. This is not the same as actually having a real conversation, is it?
I thought not.
So, here’s how it’s going to work…I’ve provided a script, and I’ve recorded a phone ‘conversation’ for you as well! I know what you’re probably thinking…Wow, technology has come so far, hasn’t it? You’re right, it has!
Whenever you’re ready, simply click the ‘play’ button below this message and then start your side of the script…be sure that you do your part well, okay? I’m forever telling my class to read with expression…what I’m asking you is to simply act like this is really real. In other words, have a conversation with me.
Don’t worry, it’ll make sense.
Now, you have a line after every one of mine…I’ll make it easy for you too, I start off with the word “Hello” after I pick up the phone, okay?
Ready, set, go!
You: Hi, this is (insert name here), is this really you?
You: Well, you just sound different than I expected you would.
You: Teachinfourth, I’m bored…I've got nothing to do on Wednesday...
You: Unfortunately, no.
You: Wait, what did I just plan?
You: What? You mean that movie is returning to the theater after nearly fifteen years?
You: Well, how can I come?
You: The password?
You: That’s it?
You: Well, should I bring something? You know, Halloween treats? Stuff like Cobweb Cookies or Harry Potter Punch?
You: What if nobody shows up at your little shindig?
You: How do I find your place, Teachinfourth?
You: Rock on, Halloween!
You: Can I tell you something, Teachinfourth?
You: Yeah, I want to tell you my deepest, darkest, secrets.
You: (You have approximately 15 seconds to share your deep secrets).
You: Well, yours IS my favorite blog, you know.
You: I wouldn’t lie about something like that.
You: Anything for you, Teachinfourth. You just name it.
You: You got it.
You: You, too.
You: (Ad lib here; you have approximately 12 seconds).
You: Catch you later, Teachinfourth, thanks for chatting
You: See ya.
Hope to see you all on Wednesday…
