I wonder how it feels like to fly high up in the sky.
Well, I can only imagine. But wouldn’t you feel alone?
Maybe, but it does sound like fun. Don’t you think so, too?
I do, but wouldn’t it be better to fly with someone?
But with whom?
With someone you cherish.
Well, that nails it down to 20 people.
So pick one?
You really have a weird sense of logic.
I don’t need your opinion.
We shouldn’t even be talking about this. We’re grown-ups.
Is that so? But I really think this is a better topic than a typical topic adults talk about.
Like politics, education, climate change, and other “stuff.”
But those are good topics. And you will learn a lot from them.
I know, but it’s so routinary and repetitive. It’s becoming a bother and
they’re kind of boring.
Well, what do you want to talk about?
Something out of the ordinary!
And you think a topic about flying is “out of the ordinary?”
Yes, I do.
Well, because it is.
Why won’t you give me a straight answer?
Well you see, in a conversation such as this, the answer lies on your own understanding. I can’t give you an answer because I don’t want to impose on you my own understanding. You have to find it on your own.
That’s some deep shit.
But I’m not kidding. You see, we think of such conversations as petty or inconvenient. But by conversing with this kind of topic, we can think and imagine further. Typical adult-topics may be seen as something worth talking about, well, I don’t digress, really. It’s just that, what you say is very limited. It does not give you any chance to make your mind work. What you say is what you know. But the conversation we just held, made us ask, react, think freely, imagine, and moreover, it didn’t restrict us. What you think of as petty and childish may be really something extraordinary.
You really are unpredictable, you know that? I didn’t think you would be able to think up of such answer.
Well, I tried.
