That’s quite an accent you have there…
Blog Guy, I need some of your job-hunting advice. I was working on a résumé, but then I stopped.
Oh, you MUST resume your résumé. Why did you stop?
I needed lunch. I’m eating a clear beef broth and some healthy Japanese soybeans my mom sent.
Well, you need to resume your résumé after you consume your consommé and eat your mommy’s edamame…
I can’t get motivated. Maybe I’ll put on some music. We love jazz in my New Orleans neighborhood.
You live in Tremé?
Indeed. Who should I listen to while I resume my résumé?
Maybe Mel Tormé? To me, Tormé is perfect. Are you a musician?
No, I make hand-knotted fabrics.
Ah, so you do macramé.
You know, Mel Tormé just isn’t working. I’m more in the mood for a Strauss opera. Any suggestions?
Good idea. I’m still hungry, too. You know what sounds good with my Salomé? Perhaps a little…
