Good for Nothing

Our friend, Gordon, is an artist. He recently graduated and is trying to find employment.

(See! I'm not the ONLY one!)

He offered to paint something for us, since he has the time.

(BTW: I politely asked him to not do anything productive during his unemployment time, as it makes me look bad.)

Mike: Would you do a trade for one of your paintings?

Gordon: Sure, you're a photographer... I'd be up for a trade.

Me: Wait! You don't want anything from me? I mean, I know I don't have a lot - or, really, anything - to offer, but I'd at least like to be considered. Maybe some witty commentary in exchange for your art?

Gordon: OK. How about you follow me around for a whole day, narrating my life?

Me: Hmmm... I'm really gonna have to put in some solid effort and time with that... I'll think about it.

Thinking about it now... I just don't know if I'm willing to make that kind of commitment...
