Gary:  Did you hear about Brian?

Gary:  Yup. And you know what? I think it’s time I got this show on the road, too.

Jessica:  What are you talking about?

Gary:  I need an adventure. Life for me has been feeling really stagnant lately, and I feel like I need to spread my wings.

Jessica:  What do you have in mind?

Gary:  Well, I bought a motorcycle. I’m going to drive it down through South America, all the way to Chile.

Jessica:  That has to be 6 or 7,000 miles! How long will you be gone?

Gary:  That’s the best part! I have no idea.

Jessica:  That sounds truly amazing, Gary. But what about StarScoop.com? If Brian is moving to Europe, and you’re traveling to Chile, what are you doing with your business?

Gary:  Well, we’d like you to take over. You can hire new staff and make all the decisions. It’s the perfect solution.

Jessica:  You’re making me the company president.

Gary:  Absolutely. You have got what it takes, Jessica.

Jessica:  I… I don’t know what to say.

Gary:  Do you want the job?

Jessica:  Yes! Of course I do. Wow! Oh, there is so much to do. I have some phone calls to make.

Gary:  Cool. I’ve got a lot of packing to do. So, let’s get this show on the road!

Jessica:  Thank you, Gary!

Very nice gentlemen- like gesture from Gary to give up his career for Jessica. I think this change speak for itself. At the same time the road trip, visiting new places, facing and knowing the unknown will make Gary a hugely interesting person:)
Yes life is short, experiences are long.
