What do you get when you put a microphone in front of two Original Soupman Soup Club Members and best-friend-bloggers, Natalie and Dylan?
A declaration of their passion for the Original Soupman’s Soups?
A recipe for a warm, happy belly hugging your heart?
Or something else…
Int. Natalie’s Apartment – Afternoon
NATALIE: Fly the friendly skies.
DYLAN: Are we going on a trip?
NATALIE: Maybe. Our friend, Bebe?
NATALIE: She’s a stewardess.
DYLAN: You mean flight attendant.
NATALIE: Right. Sorry. All the same… She’s now going to and fro.
DYLAN: She is nuts. I thought she was afraid to fly.
NATALIE: Apparently, that is not so true anymore… if it ever was. No offense, but you’re not the most detail-oriented person when it comes to yourself or any other living person on the planet.
DYLAN: No offense taken.
NATALIE: So… today… Let’s do this. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
DYLAN: Like Georgia?
NATALIE: If you mean the Eurasian country, yes. The Southeastern state? No.
DYLAN: I was thinking the state with the bulldogs.
NATALIE: You’ve been there.
DYLAN: I didn’t know that we were setting up so many complicated rules.
NATALIE: Okay. New rule. Where would you travel outside of the continental United States?
DYLAN: Clearer. Gotcha. If I could fly anywhere? I might travel to Italy.
NATALIE: That is not where I expected you to end up.
DYLAN: It’s not my normal idea of a perfect destination. I like things that move. When it boils down to it, I never stop thinking. My brain just keeps moving. But, I went to Key West a few years ago. Things just slow down there.
NATALIE: And you hate this.
DYLAN: Not at all. I just went with it. I sat on beach, reading Hemingway, watching people walk on by. While the vibe of the vineyards of Italy may be different visually, I long for the peace – inner and outer – the peace that I found while burying my toes in the sand on the beaches of Southern Florida.
NATALIE: I don’t think I have a follow-up for that.
DYLAN: Good. Then you’re learning.
NATALIE: Moving on…
DYLAN: If you could go anywhere where would you go?
NATALIE: US or other?
DYLAN: Now who’s being difficult?
NATALIE: Outside of America, I would want to visit Tokyo.
DYLAN: What is it about Tokyo that you find appealing?
NATALIE: The people, the culture, not to mention the speed at which everything moves. It sounds like so much fun. I can just picture singing karaoke into the wee hours of the night. I’m even excited about the neon.
DYLAN: Like in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift?
NATALIE: Your level of reference is limited.
DYLAN: You should go to Dubai.
NATALIE: What Fast and the Furious movie is this?
DYLAN: Part seven? America. Where would you go?
NATALIE: Red Wing, Minnesota.
DYLAN: Hold on. What, now?
NATALIE: World’s Largest Thermometer.
DYLAN: Successfully and simultaneously strange and anticlimactic.
NATALIE: This is the weirdest conversation that we’ve ever had simply due to how structured it’s been.
DYLAN: You’re welcome.
NATALIE: I don’t think that was a compliment?
DYLAN: Anything else you care to add before we wrap this up?
NATALIE: Soups for Troops! For every pack sold online, Soupman will match. Those wonderful packages of liquid gold will go right to former soldiers right here at home!
DYLAN: Sounds like a valiant effort.
NATALIE: I think so too. Until next time, I’m Natalie.
DYLAN: I’m organized, as well as being Dylan.
