Sometimes I try to get a reaction out of The Pony. It's not easy. He's fairly unflappable. Sometimes I can needle him into a passionate argument. Mostly not. It's not for lack of trying. His keel is too even. He needs to learn to sail rough seas.
"Hey, Pony. Did you read the news? Your people might get their own pillow! That Hogg kid from the school shooting is going to start his own pillow company, to compete with the MyPillow guy."
"No. I didn't see anything about that. I don't know him."
"He's from your generation. I guess you guys will call it YOUR Pillow!"
"No no no! It's more like communism. Therefore, it would be called OUR Pillow."
He's good with retorts when he's not fabricating an alibi of his phone locking me out.
