This is an Ionia Martin and Charles Yallowitz production:


Ionia:  Hey, Charles? I had something to do tomorrow at 9:45, but I can’t remember what it was…

Charles:  9:45?  That does sound familiar?

Ionia:  Didn’t you say you had something to do at nine-forty-five as well?

Charles:  That’s right.  I had that thing at nine colon forty-five.  It’s an important thing.

Ionia:  Colon? At 9:45? Is it something medical? Getting older is hell…

Charles:  Possibly.  Do you remember anything about what you have at 9:45?

Ionia:  I don’t but it is just at the edge of me brain…uhm was it…9:44? No that was before 9:45. ..

Charles:  It’s certainly not 9:46 because that’s after 9:45.  Does your brain need a tune up?

Ionia:  I think getting another year older seems to have frozen the cogs a bit. Okay, so we both have something to do at 9:45 but technically yours will be done at 6:45 and mine will be done at 12:45 because we are opposites?

Charles:  Ye . . . no.  I think I’m at 9:45 EST and you’re at 9:45 PST, which is 12:45 my time.  So, you should be going in as I’m coming out.  Time zones are such a pain.

Ionia:  Well don’t get PST off at me. I told you my cogs were frozerated

Charles:  Maybe your cogs are going to be thawed at 9:45.

Ionia:  Okay so what you are saying is that these things we have to do that we can’t remember what it is we are doing are going to take place around 9:45 tomorrow. It will be nine forty five with a three hour differential meaning when I rise at six forty five you will have already seen 9:45 and when I go in at 9:45 it will already be noon:45 there, no? Makes perfect sense.

Charles:  Makes perfect sense to me.  It’s always 9:45 somewhere, I guess.  Though not the 9:45’s that we’re talking about.

Ionia:  Two piña coladas one for each time zone. Hey, good luck at 9:45

Charles:  I’ve got the celebratory frozen yogurt.  Enjoy and good luck with your 9:45 too.

Ionia:  What should we call this post? How about  9:45

Charles:  I have it as 9:45 right now.  Scheduling it for 9:45 tonight.  I’m also writing ‘This is an Ionia Martin and Charles Yallowitz production:’ at the beginning.

Ionia:  Charles, would you stop fucking saying 9:45 every one knows it is forty five minutes after nine…or is it a quarter to ten? Or forty-five past nine…or….. 9:45 :(

Charles:  I have to keep saying 9:45.  Otherwise, people might not get the importance. Also, I might forget it.

Ionia:  Charles?

Charles:  Ionia? 9:45?

Ionia:  9:45

Charles:  Oh!  nine FORTY five.  I get it now.

Ionia:  Okay, I think we’re good lol

Charles:  At least until 9:45.

Ionia:  Alway9s have to ha:ve the las4t wor5d

Charles:  2h:6?

Ionia:  9:45. 🙉

Charles:  Fine.  We’ll call it a draw.  Rematch at 9:45?

Ionia:  👅  On the dot.  One more thing…

Charles:  Yes?

Ionia:  Noodle

Charles:  Bubble butt

Ionia:  Only at 9:45

    Funny! I don’t know what the heck you’re talking about, but it’s good banter.

    Huh!? 😀 Ming boggling… 9:45–>9=4+5


  3. tjtherien says:

    the banter is real cute here guys…but my brain is officially fried today and I don’t have any clue what’s happening at 9:45…hope you guys have figured it out… the best I can figure is I should stay tuned at 9:45 tomorrow… by the way which time zone…


  4. grovewithin says:

    Love following you…lol, hope that doesn’t read creepy! Been thinking…9:45 must be PM…because who would be drinking pina coladas in the morning…yes, that’s what i narrowed it down to, lol!


  5. kingmidget says:

    I want to know where the squirrels are.


  6. Only an hour or so…


  7. curious banter, i am intrigued. i had a theory or two but got tripped up over an overly complicated plot that decided it may not be as complicated as I originally thought and now I have confused myself and lost my train of thought on what I was going to suggest in the first place and what the fried helicopter is going on with where the squirrels fit in here?
    timezones? something smells fishy (like a star-shark from another plane of existence).
