Scientist, father, blogger, and worldly bon vivant, this reporter really had to earn his chow to line up an interview with the man behind the renowned blog site Return to Zero. As I finally sat down with the man in his tastefully decorated study, I was bubbling with excitement and more than a bit nervous, I forced myself to gain some modicum of control knowing the historical ramifications of this moment ...
Reporter - Is that a Courvoisier you are savoring?
RTZ - Huh? No, it's just a glass of lemonade. Let's proceed with the interview as I am a busy man.
Reporter - Yes, sorry. I am just a bit nervous.
RTZ - Fine.
Reporter - You're sure it isn't Courvoisier? It just sounds like something one in your position would enjoy.
RTZ - You're kidding me right? Come on man, get on with it.
Reporter - It was the drink of that dude on SNL. He was always chugging the stuff. It made his women more attractive.
RTZ - I'm quite sure that I don't know what you are talking about.
Reporter - I think I tried it once, back in college. But back then I tried lots of things. Unspeakable things.
RTZ - I really have to go now. Good day to you sir.
Reporter - Yes I understand. ... Wow this has been a great interview. One of my best. But I know that I was here to ask about something in particular. It just has slipped my mind.
(Sound of door closing in the distance.)
Reporter - Oh yeah. I was going to congratulate him on his 1000th post. Oh well, it doesn't matter now. I think it is about lunch time and I am starting to feel a bit peckish.
