Cute But Delusional

Hugo Von Strummer showed up a few weeks ago.  He’s an inventor, carries around a vial of his dead mother’s teeth attached to a gold chain in lieu of a pocket watch.  What can I say?  The man has issues.  The thing of it is, he refuses to tell me about his latest invention and I really kinda need to know.  I tried making him tea. (One assumes that inventors, generally speaking, prefer tea to coffee.  I haven’t a clue why.)  Telling him a bawdy joke really didn’t go over well.  At this point I’m at a loss.  Stymied by an emotionally unavailable man.  Figures.

Has this ever happened to you?  I mean, not with Hugo, but with some other project you’re working on?  Characters that refuse to tell you what they’re up to, ideas that start out strong and then stall on the autobahn?  Although if Hugo has actually shown up at your place, I’d appreciate if you’d send him on home.  Unless of course he’s spilling the beans on the invention.  If he is, and you could take notes and get back to me, I’d appreciate it.
