'Hi' he said.
'good day?' he said.
'okay' I said.
'why not good?' he said.
'well..' i said.
'...didn't do all that.' i said.
'well, i know you're not working,...' he said.
'.. but it must be alright..' he said.
'you're getting dole money an' that?'
'yeh, suppose.' i said.
'but it's all philip 'n' fern, richard 'n' judy, des 'n' mel.'
'well, you must have done something?' he said.'
'i guess,' i guessed.
'i drew some cartoons and made up a song.'
'that's kind of constructive' he said.
'what was the song?' he said.
'well, y'know that johnny cash died, and he always wore black?' i said.
'mmm' he mmmed.
'i thought of this new persona. the beige man. he's got a theme. 'the man in beige'.
