Many years in the future:
Interviewer: Hi Dan and welcome to the show!
Dan Howell: Hi! Thanks!
Int: Nice to have you here!
Dan: Good to be here. *looks around* Its quite nice, isn’t it?
Int: Oh, yes.
Dan: I’ve always heard Sydney was an ugly city but its really warm and just sort of pretty.
Int: *To the audience* Now, if you don’t know him, this is Dan Howell, youtube giant, internet kind, and official emperor of irony. *Turning back to Dan* Dan, how are you today?
Dan: Pretty good, thanks. Excited to be in Australia. Been visiting friends. Nadia’s not used to travel, we didn’t know how she’d do but she’s loving the whole experience.
Int: Awww, how old is she?
Dan: She’s- Oh! For those who don’t know, Nadia’s my daughter…
Dan: Yeah, I know. Me and my best friend, Phil, got her- wow- almost six months ago! *looks dramatically shaken* Wow, already?!
Int: Woah, congratulations!
Dan: Thank you! Yeah. You know, some of our fans still call her Susan Howlter?
Int: Really? Still?
Dan: Yeah, they’re hanging on to that one. *To the audience* If you didn’t know, Phil and I have been pretty good friends for about sixteen years and we used to have this joint channel where we played video games- we’d this Sim we called Dil Howlter, you know, because it’s like a combination of our names- and Phil sort of had his awful habit of naming everything Susan, so…
Int: So the long-time fans are really enjoying this, essentially.
Dan: Essentially, yes.
Int: By the way Dan, last I saw you, you were living in London. Do you still live in the old flat?
Dan: No- it was a bit small. We’re moved out of the city, a bit less urban, ‘cause we thought, better for Nadia… you know.
Int: It is so great that you and Phil are still such great friends!
Dan: I know- I mean, its so funny because a lot of people are really surprised at the idea of two mates adopting a child together and getting a little house with, you know, a blue door and a wood fence but we’re happy and… its great.
Dan: Life with the biffle’s pretty great, to be honest.
