Two Writers

Two writers were lost in a city new to them; and alas, far apart. Their communication to a bystander sounded something like this.

James: Darwin, Where are you bound?

Darwin: I think I might have booked the wrong hotel.

James: Ah! I knew the pages of your memory were yellowing.

Darwin: Could you help me out here, instead of rustling out there?

James: Summarize your surroundings!

Darwin: There are lines of text that I can’t read between.

James: Ah, for the love of God, where are you?

Darwin: I see a signboard in the distance. But the characters are blurry. They may as well be right out of your story.

James: Get closer, Shakespeare. The passage of time is not getting any shorter.

Darwin: I’m here. Looks like I’m lost in Georgetown.

James: I’m at the lane 5 across and 3 down from the Town hall Library.

Darwin: I’ll read my way through to you. I might be marginally away.

James: But we had to be at the Exhibition by 8. Shall we write that off?

Darwin: No. That’s the only reference we have. Get there.

After great pains and a lot of gibberish speak, they reached the Exhibition. I wonder why they couldn’t approach bystanders who were leading their lives communicating as normal people do.

Darwin: At last, we are on the same page.

An uninterested police officer: One more of these literary references and I’ll book you. God dammit!

Good for the writers, the policeman didn’t notice them smirk.

Hey there, reader! How’d you like this one? Do give me a shout out!
