ARTIE: (picks up ringing phone) Hello.
PAUL: Hi, Artie. We need to talk. I think we should stop making records together.
ARTIE: This is so sudden. Have you thought this through? Are you sure?
PAUL: I’m absolutely sure. Actually, I’m going to do a solo album.
ARTIE: (long pause) I understand. (another long pause) Have you decided on a title for your solo album?
PAUL: Yeah, it’s called There Goes Balding Paul-ding.
ARTIE: (yet another long pause) Hmmm.
PAUL: What, don’t you like?
ARTIE: It’s fine, but I was just thinking that maybe you should just call your first solo album simply Paul Simon, it makes a more definitive statement, that way you can save There Goes Balding Paul-ding for your second one.
PAUL: Perhaps you’re right, I’ll think about it.
ARTIE: Okay, see you later.
PAUL: Or not. (hangs up)
