Didi Dialogue – 58: Cobras

D: What’s my teudat zehut number?
G: You don’t have one. You have a subcutaneous electronic chip. Why?
D: The driver’s license application asks for my teudat number.
G: Kulfi, sweetheart, you can’t get a driver’s license.
D: What? Why not?
G: Animals are not permitted to drive.
D: You drive.
G: OK, to be more precise, nonhumans are not permitted to drive.
D: What about self-driving cars?
G: Oy, I can see this is going to be difficult.
D: Besides, I can see better than you can.
G: True, but…
D: And my hearing is like way better.
G: I’m sorry?
D: And my reflexes against yours, we’re talking wipeout.
G: Nolo contendere.
D: Plus, I can read and speak French.
G: Well, now that makes absolutely no difference.
D: It does if you’re driving in Montreal or Paris.
G: Look, only humans can get a driver’s license. It’s a matter of…safety.
D: Sounds like speciesism to me.
G: It is what it is.
D: Unfair! The three-year-old kid next door drives a firetruck.
G: Oh…I see. You mean that red plastic thing with the silver bell?
D: Yeah.
G: Ah, so what kind of car are you thinking about?
D: How about a red 1966 Shelby AC Cobra convertible?
G: Come on buddy, let’s head to the toy store. I see a car in your future.
D: Wheeee Doggies! Spring little Cobra…

One thought on “Didi Dialogue – 58: Cobras

  1. Wow, I never heard of the Rip Chords. They sound a bit like the Beach Boys.

    Car racing was never my thing, but it sure is great to think about Montreal. Mon pays, ce n’est pas in pays, c’est l’hiver. Especially at the moment…Thanks for this.
