I often go to the park to read my paper on nice days. The urban park that I favour attracts a number of street performers. One of these, a Mime attracted my attention. Every day he went through exactly the same routine. It didn't matter who was watching or how the audience
reacted, nothing could make this guy vary his motions or break character.
Finally my curiosity got the better of me. I waited until he was leaving that night to approach him and ask why he repeated the same routine over and over. Nothing, he wouldn't break character or talk to me as he walked out of the park and climbed into a car a lady was driving. Finally, several weeks later I arrived at the park early.
Just as I arrived I spotted the Mime kissing his girl friend as he climbed out of the car. I desperation I ran over to the lady's car before she could pull out and asked her why her friend repeated the same routine over and over. She listened to my question and sadly shook her head. "I'm sorry, but I'm afraid that I've just got a one track Mime."
