Snippets From Interview #2

Second installment of the Snippets Series! This time from the home town of none other than the King of Rock and Roll.


Surgeon: Why is it so God damn hard to travel with a suit
I have nothing else

Wife of a Surgeon: Did you ask an attendant if she could hang it for you?

S: Too late


S: Um checked in
It’s a room
Better than pirate shack, worse than Rio Nido Lodge

WS: it’s 56 bucks

S: It looks like it


Over Video Chat

S: I’m gonna feel weird walking to the hospital through downtown with a bag and a suit on.

WS: What? Why?

S: This place is kinda questionable.

WS: Wait, are you scared?

S: No. You just have to be here to see it. It’s like, one side of the street you think “oh, okay, this is a nice place to live,” and then you turn your head and it’s like the worse part of the city. But it’s the same street.

W: Well, walk on the good side.


S: I don’t want to go to this
I just wanna go home

WS: Awwww 😦


S: We were supposed to depart @ 555
Now we are delayed further
With no answer as to when we are boarding

WS: Maaaaan
I was so happy you were coming back at a decent hour
darn these people

S: All this shit for a program I don’t even want to go to
At least I liked Chicago


In the car after picking Surgeon up from the airport

S: Here, I brought you something

Snippets From Interview #1

Snippets: I’ve always loved the word. And this is the perfect way to use it! A series, perhaps, of glimpses into the world of fellowship interviews. A bank of little memories, a  light shower of thoughts, and some laughter, too.


Surgeon: Man the airport is crowded today

Wife of a Surgeon: It’s Friday

S: Still doesn’t make it any less painful


S: Delayed.

2 hours later

So won’t be in Chicago until 9 likely
Hotel around 10 maybe
And this is how I get to spend my first day off since getting back
I’m so tired

WS: 😦


S: Btw your bday gifts came in yesterday


S: Ok I’m checked in
No late check out
I just ordered a pizza
Gonna walk over and get it

WS: No late check out??

S: Because my life needs to be as difficult as possible


S: The downtown area is nice
I wish I had a day to walk around
There are all these sculptures in the park
*sends pic*

WS: The Bean!!!
Go see your reflection in it
It’s really fun

S: Oh… I didn’t do that
Just kept walking


S: Also my pizza is 24 dollars
It better be f**king awesome

WS: Hahaha!


WS: How goes it?

6 hours later

WS: Done?

1 hour later

S: Yeah… On the train back to ohare


S: Note to self
McDonald’s fries kind of suck
Also their bbq sauce is water
This is the first time in well over a decade since I bought something from them
I think I’m set for the next decade or two

WS: I don’t remember the last time I ate there

S: I should have just bought chocolate.


S: I think this airport has cockroaches


Thus ends interview number one.

Number two? In two days.
