Friend: I’ve greatly improved my life; recently, I’ve stopped speaking unless I have something truly wonderful to express. I only say exquisite ideas. Think about it: anyone can say just about anything,and they do! But I take the higher road and limit myself to only expressing the really refined ideas, and this is just one way that I’m—well—just better than other people!

Rufus: That is such a great idea; I’m an artist, so it is essential that I distance myself from the common man, but I’ve never thought to literally embody that distance in every word that literally comes out of my mouth!

Friend: You should try it; it will change your life!

Rufus: I will; I’ll start right now!

Silence for ten minutes.

Rufus: Wow, the sky is super blue today.

The end.
