Wish You Were Here
"I want to write it. Give me the pen."
"It's only a postcard."
"I don't care. I want to write it. I WILL write it. Give me the pen!"
"You probably can't even think of anything to say."
"Yes I can. I know exactly what I want to say. GIVE me the PEN!"
"Oh very well. Here it is. Just be nice."
"I'm always nice."
"That's a matter of opinion."
"There. Short and sweet but very much to the point."
"'Wish you were here'. You can't put that!"
"Why not? That what people always put on postcards."
"Yes but... not on this one."
"Because it's a picture of Alcatraz."
