Character Interview I wrote many months ago with the eccentric old man from Grandmother’s Letters. Hope you enjoy!
– Hello, sir. You’re the centenarian in the area, aren’t you?
I said that I’m not interested.
-I just need to ask you a few questions…
I don’t answer questions! Especially for reporters!
-I’m not a reporter.
What are you then?
Even worse! I don’t need a book written about me!
-Can I ask you a couple of questions?
-Can you tell me your name? Your real name?
-Are those dogs that I can hear barking?
Do you know of something else that barks like that?
-I’ll take that as a yes, Mr. –
My neighbors call me Mr. Centenarian. That’s the only name you’re going to get. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I said that I’m not-
-Wait, Mr. – Mr. Centenarian! The rumor is that you don’t let anyone into your house. Is this true?
It’s not a rumor, it’s a fact. It’s also the reason that I’m shutting the door now.
-Wait! Mr. Centen- *sigh* Well, that went well now, didn’t it?
To the KING be all the glory!
