Extra points for anyone who can name the song Dude refers to at the end!
“There is nothing more irksome than the sound of water dripping in the distance.”
“Lamont, are you reading Jane Austen again?”
“Hmm. The word doth harken back to olden times.”
“Whoa. If you are going to talk like that from now on, I’m going to hie myself hence and be done with it. I wouldn’t suffer that verbiage for a farthing.”
“Could you do something about the faucet?”
“Methinks it’s not the faucet, Lamont. Forsooth, there is precipitation afoot, rendering the external world a dank and dismal place, fit only for ducks and creatures of that ilk.”
“Zounds. I was in mind of a peaceful perambulation around yon park before tea.”
“Dame Fortune is a whimsical wench, and our final moments are always in close proximity. I suggest we hasten to lift a tankard of ale .”
Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a couple of years ago. They are unusual in that they remember most of their past incarnations which gives them an unusual perspective on life, the universe and everything.
