For this week’s resident spotlight, we talk to acclaimed local author Jim Hermann, whose latest book The Heat of Man is quickly rising up the best-seller list.

Jim:

Well, well, well. Here we are.

The Pasadenoid:

Hi Jim.

Jim: 

We meet again. But this time under very different circumstances, no? Funny how fate can make comedic fools of us all!

The Pasadenoid:

Look, can we just do an interview about your book and be done with it?

Jim

That would be convenient for you huh? Just a happy little interview with no mention of the-

The Pasadenoid:

Jim, please.

Jim:

Oh come off your high horse. You know what you did and there’s no hiding from the consequences.

The Pasadenoid:

So…about The Heat Of Man. That’s a pretty weird title. Why don’t you talk about that?

Jim:

I’d rather talk about something else. A holiday party. This past December. At my house.

The Pasadenoid:

Jim, we don’t have to do this.

Jim:

A party I kindly invited you to.

The Pasadenoid:

Yes, and-

Jim:

A party in which you were found-

The Pasadenoid:

Jim, come on-

Jim:

-in my bathroom-

The Pasadenoid:

-I already told you-

Jim-

-LOOKING INSIDE MY MEDICINE CABINET.

The Pasadenoid:

 

Jim: 

And tell them what you found, why don’t you?

The Pasadenoid:

Look, this really isn’t necessary.

Jim:

What did you find?

The Pasadenoid:

Why do you want me to tell people that?

Jim:

You want to know why? I’ll tell you why. Because in that moment you decided that my medical condition is your business, and everyone else’s business too. Despite the fact I had the courtesy to invite you to my home for a dinner party. So please. Tell the world what you found there! Let them be privy to this fascinating information you have uncovered!

The Pasadenoid:

Foot fungus cream.

Jim:

That’s right. Foot fungus cream. For my foot fungus.

The Pasadenoid:

Listen, Jim-

Jim:

Well that’s that. It’s out there. I hope you’re happy. I hope your magazine is happy.

The Pasadenoid:

I’m not happy about this. I told you I was sorry.

Jim: 

Oh go fuck yourself.
