Ask Awakeman 1
Awakeman sits at a desk. To the left are some shelves with two books on top. On the desk sits an ornamental globe of the earth, a piece of paper, and some reading glasses. To the right is a palm plant. On the wall behind Awakeman hangs a large picture of Mt Fuji.
AWAKEMAN: Hello, and welcome to the first episode of “Ask Awakeman”! I’m your host, Awakeman.
A picture of a bearded wizard appears on the right.
AWAKEMAN: Our first question is from Library Wizard, who asks:
Awakeman puts on the reading glasses and reads off the paper.
AWAKEMAN (quoting Library Wizard): “Dear Awakeman, the following items are overdue…”
AWAKEMAN: Ha! First episode, first crank-mail!
AWAKEMAN: Seriously. Why would a “wizard” not simply “magic” the books back?
To drive the point, Awakeman gestures like a conjurer.
