Writing 101 – Give & Take – Contrasted Dialogue

“I twinkle, and sparkle, and rarely run out of light.”

“Unless someone un-plugs you, whereas, I, keep burning into the night, and my glow varies from soft and low, to high and flickering.”

“Until you run out of wick!.  I don’t have a wick, and all someone has to do is replace a bulb every once in a while, while you have to be replaced entirely.  It’s clear that I’m superior.”

“Superior?  How many people replace the bulb – if they can even find the culprit?  A person sees my remains clearly, and I’m so popular that more of my kind are bought every day than your ilk could ever hope to attain!  Not only that, but I’ve been used since people discovered that fat can burn – what’s your heritage?”

“We come from more distinguished minds than ‘fat-burners’ – ha, you’re more like drool-wipers.  If you call that sophistication, then you’re clearly deluded – and speaking of clear, my lineage includes colors, blinking brights, steady, reliable illumination that replaced your kind pretty soon after the knuckle-walkers left caves.”

“Maybe you high-tech air-sniffers with all your fancy gadgetry wow some, but we still dominate at the heart, where love, and poetry, and art – the very seat of the soul – lives!”

“Oh ho! Seat of the soul?  We inspire too!  We are used more often, in more places than…”

“Heh, heh, I guess you just got shut down, los…”

    1. I replied to this saying that I was struggling with the assignment because I wanted to write something worthwhile, like a dialogue on global warming or something, but I looked around the room, saw one of my candles next to a jar with twinkle lights in it and off I went. Thanks so much for reading & commenting. 🙂

  1. This brought a smile to my face; it was so adorable and fun to read!

    Also, it’s ironic that you mentioned in your reply to Priceless Joy about originally wanting to write about global warming, because for this assignment, I did a convo between a polar bear and a human, in honor of Climate Week 2014. It seems we think alike!

    Great job again on this post
