Conversing with Mr. Fly

I intiate a conversation with a passing fly

He lands on my computer desk

He begins cleaning himself

“Hey Mr. Fly, why do you buzz around?”

The fly looks me in the eyes

From all angles

Asessing me analytically

“Hi Mr. Human. Well, the buzzing sound is a result of me rapidly beating my two wings together.”

“That’s real interesting, Mr. Fly. But why? Why do you do it? What’s the reason? What’s the point?”

“I guess I just need to fly.”
