Travel Portrait 28
The Gab Hagglefest: Speed-Coaxing, Pressure-Pointing
April 7, 2010 [listen: part
In this two-part travel portrait, Ed and Eddie, father
and son match wits as they banter for their own benefit--each
working an angle for the consumer good.
In part one, Speed-Coaxing,
Ed attempts to "side dish." Steadfast, Eddie moderates
his father's dietary habit. In part two, Pressure-Pointing,
Eddie attempts to "gift shop." Steadily, Ed parentally
guides his son towards a final purchase.
Filial bonding abounds as the duo retreat in Manhattan.
