Ruby: Fly? Are you here?
Fly: Physically? Yes.
Ruby: Are you sleeping?
Ruby: You talk very well for a sleeping body.
Fly: So I’ve been told. What’s going on?
Ruby: Ginger is on her way over here. She says she has a very important thing to discuss with us.
Fly: Very important or Ginger’s version of ‘very important’?
Ruby: Right now, it’s difficult to tell. (knocking on the door) That’s her.
Fly: I’ll get up.
Ruby: Hello, Ginger…what’s with the maps?
Ginger: I’ve decided it’s been too long since I was on a road trip. So, I’ve plotted one out.
Fly: Why are we the ones who get to enjoy this experience with you?
Ginger: Because you both have passports.
Ruby: Ginger, don’t take this the wrong way, but…are we leaving the country because of some…minor indiscretion you may have…committed recently?
Ginger: Don’t be ridiculous. I wasn’t caught.
Fly: Why doesn’t this make me feel better?
Ruby: Okay, Ginger, where are you taking us?
Fly: As in “Send someone to fetch us/We’re in Saskatchewan?”
Ruby: Movin’ right along, doo-doo-doot, doo-doo-doot, doo-doo-doot…
Ginger: I can’t believe I’m saying this: Focus!
Fly: Sorry. You said Saskatchewan. We thought Muppets.
Ruby: And song ensued. You were saying you wanted to take us to Saskatchewan?
Ginger: Forget, Saskatchewan.
Fly: You don’t want to take us to Saskatchewan?
Ginger: Yes I do.
Ruby: But you just said to forget Saskatchewan.
Ginger: No, I said ‘Forget, Saskatchewan.’
Fly: I think my brain hurts.
Ginger: It’s only 17 and a half hours if we drive continually, but I can completely understand if you might want to take pit stops or something. So, I’ve plotted out a course that will get us there quickly –
Fly: To Saskatchewan?
Ginger: Exactly. Forget, Saskatchewan.
Ruby: Okay, my brain hurts now.
Ginger: But with my plotting and planning, we can get to Forget in two days with one bed-n-breakfast stop along the way and we’ll have all the opportunities to have an easy, languorous journey all the way to Forget.
Fly: What are we forgetting, exactly?
Ginger: Oh, right, sorry. Please can we go to Forget in Saskatchewan?
Ruby: Do we have something that needs to be forgotten?
Ginger: There’s an arts festival in July, but we don’t have to go then, if that doesn’t work with your schedules.
Fly: There’s an arts festival in Saskatchewan?
Ruby: Saskatchewan is pretty big, Ginge…where, exactly, is the arts festival?
Fly: You forgot where the arts festival is?
Ginger: No. The town only has about 40 people in it. I’m pretty sure we can find the arts festival once we’re there.
Fly: Once we’re where?
Ruby: Let’s start over. Ginger. You want to go to an arts festival.
Ruby: You plotted out the course to the arts festival.
Ginger: That’s what these maps are for…
Ruby: A nice, easy, languorous journey of 2 days up to the arts festival.
Ginger: Yup. To and from. Four days of traveling with a B&B included and lots of rest stops available along the way to add to the ease and languorous…ness…ocity.
Ruby: The arts festival is in Saskatchewan.
Ruby: Where the population is approximately 40 people.
Ginger: You’re catching on!
Ruby: And the name of the town is…
Ruby: The town is called Forget?
Ginger: Yeah! See? Here, on the map!
Ruby: You just wanted to have an Abbot & Costello moment, didn’t you?
Ginger: It was a bit more fun than it should have been.
Fly: It can’t be that easy.
Ruby: Simple minds, simple pleasures.
Ginger: Seriously, though, can we go? 6 days, I promise that’s all! Two days to Forget and two days there and two days back and when people ask us where we were we can say ‘Forget.’
Fly: There’s actually a town called Forget?
Ruby: Ginger, I can honestly say that only you would want to go to Forget, Saskatchewan.
Fly: Who would want to remember Saskatchewan?
Ginger: It’s as close to a Jedi Mind Trick as I can get! “Where were you?” “Forget.” “Okay.” C’mon!
Ruby: It does sound like a fun game…
Fly: It sounds more fun the more ways you say it… “Let’s go to Forget.”
Ruby: “Let’s make a trip to Forget.”
Ginger: So we’re going?
Fly: I want to go to Forget.
Ruby: I guess we’re going to Forget.
Ginger: We’ll drive to Forget and we won’t look back!
Fly: So, when exactly is the Arts Festival? I’ll have to check my schedule at the hospital.
Ginger: Oh yeah, it’s in July.
Ruby: What part of July?
Ginger: Mid-July…or maybe mid-August…early August? I forget.
