This is an Ionia Martin and Charles Yallowitz production:
Ionia: Hey, Charles? I had something to do tomorrow at 9:45, but I can’t remember what it was…
Charles: 9:45? That does sound familiar?
Ionia: Didn’t you say you had something to do at nine-forty-five as well?
Charles: That’s right. I had that thing at nine colon forty-five. It’s an important thing.
Ionia: Colon? At 9:45? Is it something medical? Getting older is hell…
Charles: Possibly. Do you remember anything about what you have at 9:45?
Ionia: I don’t but it is just at the edge of me brain…uhm was it…9:44? No that was before 9:45. ..
Charles: It’s certainly not 9:46 because that’s after 9:45. Does your brain need a tune up?
Ionia: I think getting another year older seems to have frozen the cogs a bit. Okay, so we both have something to do at 9:45 but technically yours will be done at 6:45 and mine will be done at 12:45 because we are opposites?
Charles: Ye . . . no. I think I’m at 9:45 EST and you’re at 9:45 PST, which is 12:45 my time. So, you should be going in as I’m coming out. Time zones are such a pain.
Ionia: Well don’t get PST off at me. I told you my cogs were frozerated
Charles: Maybe your cogs are going to be thawed at 9:45.
Ionia: Okay so what you are saying is that these things we have to do that we can’t remember what it is we are doing are going to take place around 9:45 tomorrow. It will be nine forty five with a three hour differential meaning when I rise at six forty five you will have already seen 9:45 and when I go in at 9:45 it will already be noon:45 there, no? Makes perfect sense.
Charles: Makes perfect sense to me. It’s always 9:45 somewhere, I guess. Though not the 9:45‘s that we’re talking about.
Ionia: Two piña coladas one for each time zone. Hey, good luck at 9:45
Charles: I’ve got the celebratory frozen yogurt. Enjoy and good luck with your 9:45 too.
Ionia: What should we call this post? How about 9:45
Charles: I have it as 9:45 right now. Scheduling it for 9:45 tonight. I’m also writing ‘This is an Ionia Martin and Charles Yallowitz production:’ at the beginning.
Ionia: Charles, would you stop fucking saying 9:45 every one knows it is forty five minutes after nine…or is it a quarter to ten? Or forty-five past nine…or….. 9:45 😦
Charles: I have to keep saying 9:45. Otherwise, people might not get the importance. Also, I might forget it.
Charles: Ionia? 9:45?
Charles: Oh! nine FORTY five. I get it now.
Ionia: Okay, I think we’re good lol
Charles: At least until 9:45.
Ionia: Alway9s have to ha:ve the las4t wor5d
Ionia: 9:45. 🙉
Charles: Fine. We’ll call it a draw. Rematch at 9:45?
Ionia: 👅 On the dot. One more thing…
Charles: Bubble butt
Ionia: Only at 9:45
