In this dialogue, I question the way he does business. Mostly, I ask him questions to which he explains himself.
Socrates: I don’t understand why you ask all these damn questions or why you constantly bring god into it.
Me: You like to ask the question and you bring up god by going against the local one.
S: Perhaps, do you know why?
M: It seems like a good way to think and challenge the local authorities and ways. To think and be more outside the box, why are you so serious?
S: I am not, who can be that way and question god about being good and look so bad!
Me: You do look like an over weight pug nosed dog with a fat belly. But you use your image to good effect by questioning everyone you meet and everything you do. Don’t you?
S: Getting to know myself is all about those principles, I may be a little too creative but there are more than chit chats and questions about life.
M: Now I think you are trying to lead me drink that indigestible virtue: justice et all.
S: Analyze this big boy, if being a world citizen mean starting with all the things in common, why not think big with self awareness, contemplating, heroism, compassion?
M: Why virtues? You could start with having a good time, go to the Olympic Games and eat,drink and be marry.
S: If everyone wants to go and have a merrymaking, I don’t judge, but some people change and live a good life by practice and it’s their business.
M: You believe people voluntarily become good by practices of virtue?
S: It is possible. And some do it. But it is more about the practice and people.
S: Now you are too serious. I know I am. It is a good time to lighten up and make my fair well. I have plans with the wife. And we like to spend the time merrymaking together.
M: Best regards Socrates, you seem to be destined much in your life. Happy Merrymaking!
