Conversation With a Coffinfish

One of my former coworkers Leonard has a clever story called “Conversation with a Coffinfish“. It’s quite funny.

News You Can Bruise: Hello.
Coffinfish: Hello.
NYCB: Is it true that you can walk on the ocean floor using your fins?
CF: You’d better believe it.
NYCB: Where do you usually walk?
CF: Just around.
NYCB: But like where? Like to the store?
CF: There are no stores in the depths of the ocean!

This reminds me of a story I wrote about 12 years ago called “Conversation Between Two Mountain Goats on the Side of a Mountain.” I had forgotten all about it until the other day when I was looking through an old box of stuff and found some of my papers from the fiction workshops I took in college. I’ll transcribe it when I get back to NYC.
