Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Ah! At last, I've found a place where I can sit down and rest! I hope no one comes along and disturbs me! This is so nice and quiet!
/
Man: Do you object if I sit down here?
Mr. Bunion: No! Certainly no! Are you tired? Been working too hard, eh?
/
Man: Working? Haven't had my clothes off for a week! Started out to see my girl last Saturday night, met a friend with--
Mr. Bunion: Yeah!
/
Man: with a bank roll you couldn't stuff into one of the Lusitania's smoke stacks. He took me out to dinner where wine flowed like a Texas gusher! Then we--
Mr. Bunion: Yeah!
/
Man: Then we took in a show, and almost broke it up too. Ha! Ha! Then played the wheel for an hour or two, nothing doing, so we hired a gravel scratcher--
Mr. Bunion: Uh huh!
/
Man: And did the speed breaking record of the city, got arrested in Jail all night then started doing up the town! Don't know where we went.
/
Man: What did, where he is, where I'm at, what my father will say, what my girl.--
/
Man: will think, nor, what they'll do to me down at the office, neither do I care! All I want is a rest. Just a rest! Hum!
Mr. Bunion: Well you can have it! I can't it seems!
