Intervieடி with Vositha Wijenayake

DA
What is your job description, what do you do for a living?

VW
That is a question I ask myself on a daily basis. I think that the answer is something I am yet to find.

DA
Why is it that I still don’t seem to understand?

VW
Possibly because there is nothing to understand?

DA
“Work for a living” … more like “fork for a dying,” right?

VW
You seem to like riddles. I never grew into liking them. I always thought they were too time-consuming.

DA
What are some of Sri Lanka’s most bizarre aspects? What can Germans/Europeans learn from Sri Lankans?

VW
It would be bizarre for me to think anything in Sri Lanka would be bizarre having grown up there. Whatever it is that others might find bizarre, I am sure it’s part of me. To learn from Sri Lankan, I think they could learn how to make coconut sambol. I quite like eating it.

DA
There is a very particular set of skills real grown-ups need to have. Unfortunately, I happen to lack them all – what’s up with that?

VW
Though I did study psychology, should I take it that you are asking for a free psycho-analysis?

DA
Terms like “NGO,” “administrative” or “prerogative” are useful when replicating an earnest adult. I personally like “implementing” stuff, whereas my wife totally digs all that is “inherent.” What fancy vocables do you prefer?

VW
I’m going to be very disappointing. Answer is “none.”

DA
I used to be into Nintendo a lot, but now I’m too dannyglover for this shit. What about you? Catch any Pokémon(s) lately?

VW
You lost me there. I think I am starting to believe in your use of fancy terminology.

DA
Respect is something I learned the hard way at a relatively young age when growing up in the streets of Harlem – what’s your opinion on Jewish guys posing as their black brothers?

VW
My opinion would be that I could answer a question which might be one that I could actually provide a useful answer to, if I was asked one.
