What is he?

-A man, of course.

Yes, but what does he do?

-He lives and is a man.

Oh quite! But he must work. He must have a job of some sort.

-Why?

Because obviously he’s not one of the leisured classes.

-I don’t know. He has lots of leisure. And he makes quite beautiful chairs.

There you are then! He’s a cabinet maker.

-No, no.

Anyhow a carpenter and a joiner.

-Not at all.

But you said so.

-What did I say?

That he made chairs and was a joiner and carpenter.

-I said he made chairs, but I did not say he was a carpenter.

All right then he is just an amateur?

-Perhaps! Would you say a thrush was a professional flautist, or just an amateur?

I’d say it was just a bird

-And I say he is just a man.
