David: Okay, found my notes.
Jessie: You actually made notes?
David: Yeah.  I have trouble reading, not writing.
Jessie: ...I'm gonna give you a second to let that sink in.
David: Okay, just for that, I'm gonna go ahead and ask you the forbidden question.
Jessie: Terrifying.
David: Alright, first question--How old are you?
Jessie: That's stupid.  You know exactly how old I am.
David: Yeah, but they don't.
Jessie: They who?
David: Whoever.  Just answer the question.
Jessie: I don't see why you can't do it.
David: Because it's my job to ask the questions.
Jessie: Okay fine.  I'm seventeen.
David: Good job.  If it takes that long to answer each question, we're never gonna get outta here.
Jessie: Hey, this was your idea, I could be doing a million better things.
David: So seventeen is pretty young to be in the inventing circuit.  Could you share a few of your experiences in that area?
Jessie: Well, I wouldn't say I'm really "in the circuit", I mean, it's not like I hold any patents.
David: Bullcrap, you're always working on something.  Fr'instance, that thing you're doing now.  The talking mirror.
Jessie: Oh, that.  It's part of a series of physical apps I have planned.  They're small devices about the size of your hand that add functionality to any number of nondigital objects.  Speech is a feature common between much of them.
David: Where'd that idea come from?
Jessie: Well, I noticed that a lot of people talk to their stuff.  Some sing in the shower, argue with the television, or swear at the mirror.  But all of that is still on paper.
David: I could do with a talking skateboard.
Jessie: Maybe someday.  The way you ride, you'd be constantly bringing it back to me for repairs.
David: I'd get 'em for free, right?
Jessie: Mostly free.  I'd still bill you for parts.
David: Hard-nose.
Jessie: Cheapskate.
David: Do you have any influences or role models?  I mean, aside from Tesla and Faraday.  I've already seen posters of them on your workshop wall.
Jessie: Do you mean contemporary inventors?
David: Yeah.  Are there any more modern guys who inspire you?
Jessie: That's not a long list.  I can only think of one, but he's a genius.  I could work my entire life and never be good enough to email him.
David: Wow, this is the first I've heard of him.  Do you subscribe to a magazine or something?  Eggheads and Wrenches?
Jessie: You're a dork.
David: Ow, don't punch me.  Really though, what's this guy's name?
Jessie: Sigurd Conrad.  And I didn't read about him in a magazine, he's all over the internet.  He's got his own website, urdplay.
David: Does he invent games?
Jessie: He's done everything.  Software, hardware--you know that electronic butler in all the new smart houses?
David: The ones that are actually kind of affordable?  I think they're installing the cheapest versions into my apartment complex.
Jessie: His idea.
David: Awesome.  No wonder you look up to him.
Jessie: Yeah...
David: But hey, you've come up with some cool stuff.  What about the self-maintaining oven?
Jessie: Way to bring up the only thing I've ever made that works.
David: What about smart shoes.
Jessie: Those were just sneakers with a radio built into the sole.
David: But they worked.  Even in the rain!
Jessie: Heh, thanks for testing them.
David: I'm the world's best guinea pig, what can I say.
Jessie: Are we done with this interview thing yet?
David: Sure, just two more questions.
Jessie: Shoot.
David: Are there any ice cream sandwiches left in the freezer, and can I have one?
Wasn't sure where to put this, which is probably why I almost completely forgot to post it.

A couple of my characters in an interview situation. David Wyatt questions his cousin Jessie Angus, mostly about inventing.

I'll have to wait and see who comes forth without prodding or bribing of some sort. ;)

Yeah, I find that bribing only works until the cookies are gone...

Same here. Though a good portion of them are plain lazy.
