Conversation with a Dad

Neil's Dad, in Accord, NY


NEIL'S DAD: Hey, bud.
NEIL: Hey, Dad.
NEIL’S DAD: Did you know that with my new Canon Powershot camera you can fully capture those fun, memorable moments with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV?
NEIL: Oh yeah?
NEIL’S DAD: Yes, it provides flexibility to use the optical zoom while shooting superb 720p HD movies with stereo sound. This allows you to fully capture those fun, memorable moments with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV.
NEIL: That’s a relief.
NEIL’S DAD: Yes it is—wait—what’s a relief?
NEIL: Well, you just said that with that camera you can fully capture those fun, memorable moments with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV.
NEIL’S DAD: Yeah, I did. So?
NEIL: Well, I was really hoping that you would have a camera to fully capture those fun, memorable moments with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV because I’d like to create a fun, memorable moment with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV next to that large wooden bear right here and now in Accord, NY.
NEIL’S DAD: That’s a great idea. I think it’s fair to assume that Accord, NY is full of opportunities to capture a fun, memorable moment with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV.
NEIL: Great. You go over there and stand by the bear. I’ll take the picture.
NEIL’S DAD: Okay, I’m now over there and standing by the bear.
NEIL: But I have a problem.
NEIL’S DAD: What’s that?
NEIL: I don’t have your camera.
NEIL’S DAD: Oh. Right. Well, it’s packed away in the trunk of the car.
NEIL: Really? So that means I can’t capture a fun, memorable moment with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV?
NEIL’S DAD: Not with my camera, you can’t.
NEIL: Then I’ll just have to use the camera on my phone.
NEIL’S DAD: That’s a good idea.
NEIL: Cookie, please.
NEIL’S DAD: Exactly.
