The Interview

Inspired by The Daily Post to write an interview with an inanimate object.  I’m quite sure this isn’t what they had in mind 😉

Eliza Murdock: Welcome back to Around the House.  I know you’re all eager to meet our next guest.  Joining me here today we have that oft’ overlooked item that many people call common, and yet there is nothing ‘common’ about this bright star.  Please join me in a round of applause for Mr. Table Lamp!

Mr Lamp, thank you so much for agreeing to this interview.


EM: From humble beginnings in a small studio apartment, you’ve risen to grace the tables of upscale society.   Why, I hear just last week you sat at the table of a Rockefeller!


EM: Quite an exciting night.


EM: As Shakespeare said, “Watt’s in a name?”  Now that you’re moving up in the world, have you considered changing your name to something more up-to-date with the times?


EM: Don’t fret, I certainly won’t try to twist it out of you.


EM: I hear that there’s a new desk lamp in the neighborhood.  Reports are she’s very flexible.  Any chance of some sparks there?


EM: Keeping it to yourself for now, I see.  Very cheeky.


EM: Which brings up a sad turn in your life.  Not long ago you went through a real dark spell, feeling burnt-out, powerless…


EM: Yeah, it’s always hard when you can’t see that light at the end of the tunnel.


EM: But you took some time off and I have to say, you’ve gone through a real change, you just light up the room when you’re on.


EM: You’re certainly an inspiration, bringing illumination to a problem that not many like to talk about.


EM: Well, what can you say to that, am I right?  But I won’t dwell on that.


EM: So, how many blondes does it take to change your bulb?


EM: Ah, I’m just yankin’ your chain.


EM: I think that’s all the time we have this week.  Thank you so much, Mr. Table Lamp, this has been a truly enlightening interview!

Join us next time on ‘Around The House’, the show that puts the spotlight on the things you use every day.

  1. You should try an interview with a potted plant. Give them a sip of water and they are generally talkative. Lighting fixtures can be so aloof.
