GREAT IDEA...a Short Story Slam!! An inspirational photo, and off we go...
Paulie dear, I do give you full credit for coming up with that super name, "WE'VE GOT AIRS". Balloons..air..why didn't I think of it? By the way, babe, I'd like to know why the Department of Hot Air Balloons has sent a Man in Black to snoop around. Seems they're looking for some guy, Doyle. Disappeared. Like I would know?
Sit down and listen to me Paulie. I sort of remember, way way back, some guy named Doyle was with the Balloon Goons, the Spy Division. I only heard in passing. He fooled around before the Satellites. So I heard. Skimming the rooftops of Moscow. That's all I know. They say he was the first to test the invisibility factor. Never got caught. He thought he was invisible. Maybe he still is. That's why nobody can find him now.
I don't know why you think that this frou frou wedding cake of a balloon is an espionage balloon. I don't care what they whisper about me. This is my business. I deliver Happy Birthday surprises. Like the six strippers we just dropped off at the Playboy Mansion. Guess they needed one more babe in that joint. That's what I do Paulie, pick 'em up and drop'em off. Surprise!
So funny that you think I might have anything to do with this I Spy nonsense. Do you think the Heffner drop was a mission? Did I leave my cloak and dagger lying around?
What do you mean you think you saw him lurking around here. You can't know what he looks like. I didn't think you'd ever heard of him. I surely never saw him. Never. I was kidding about a Spy Division. Comic book stuff. Not for real.
But if the Guy in Black asks you if you saw Doyle, it's best to say, Doyle, who's Doyle?
