I like the contrast between the persona's verbosity and the respondant's relative silence by comparison!

Welcome back, I, Rodius, we've missed you!Hope you'll stay around this time...

I love this piece. It's clever and it's funny and it's well-written. Ticks all the boxes!

We have a new weekend challenge in addition to the weekly one; hope you can join us for that.
