Sprint McDowell wants to do a blog post in which he interviews me, and I told him no way. He threatened to do an unauthorized interview. I don’t know how that works, but to make sure I’m accurately portrayed, I agree.
You may remember Sprint from a previous post. He hosts the on-line, real-time, cyber game show Race to Win.
Sprint will be asking his on-line questions from his studio in Los Angeles, and I’ll reply from my home here in Spokane. Screen shots are added as the interview progresses, so let’s get started.
Jim: “Sprint, I want a clean, friendly interview. No twisting of facts or manufactured controversies.”
Sprint: “Listen, I dictate the terms. Those evasive, roundabout, circular replies that you’re famous for – forget it.”
Jim: “Sure, Sprint. Sorry.”
Sprint: “Why are you so dumb?”
Jim: “I’m not dumb.”
Sprint: “Wrong! Didn’t you post a couple lurid photos of yourself on this blog that revealed way, way too much?
Jim: “I’ve done many posts and photos, so I’ll have to form a committee to look into that.”
Sprint: “I Must Run Everywhere is a one-man operation, Jim. Answer the question!”
Jim: “It is a one-man operation, but I wish I had a collaborator. Sometimes two heads are better than one.”
Sprint: “What did I say about evasive answers?”
Jim: “Something about roundabouts and circular saws?”
Sprint: “I see I’m not going to get anywhere with this, you foolish man. Next, a simple question for a simple mind. Who takes your photos?”
Jim: “Almost always me.”
Sprint: “How can you take photos while being in them?”
Jim: “I use the timer on my camera. Sometimes I have to take a lot of shots, especially on action photos to get a usable one.”
Sprint: “Look at me, not at the ceiling, Jim. Who plays Ruby Redpepper, and is the picture below photoshopped?”Jim: “My daughter Tricia is Ruby Redpepper. She really did get on that plane. I ask her to be in photos or take photos for blog ideas whenever she visits.”
Sprint: “Does she really own Animal Fulfillment Specialists and hired you to assist her on an outing involving just you two and President Obama?”
Jim: “Maybe….not. Actually she’s program director for the President’s Export Council at the Department of Commerce in DC. That’s what made the photos for that post possible. Take a look at the photo she posted on Facebook a few months ago. I thought her comment, “Creepin’ on the Prez”, was funny.
Sprint: ” Enough, Jim. Do not use my interview to boast about your daughter! You are such a braggart.”
Jim: “Listen to me, Sprint. My daughter is the second-most wonderful, special and incredibly talented person in the entire world.”
Sprint: “I’ve had enough. This interview is over. Wait…your daughter is second in the world? Who’s first? Hold on, don’t answer. Jim, don’t post that photo!”
