We Must Imagine Sisyphus as having Met Camus

Description: Camus is standing in front of the hill as Sisyphus rolls up his boulder.

Camus: "The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor."

Camus: "But Sisyphus is the absurd hero. There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn. If his descent is sometimes performed in sorrow, it can also take place in joy, for the struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart."

Camus: "We must imagine Sisyphus happy."

Sisyphus: "Are you being serious right now?"
Camus: "Uh...what?"

Sisyphus: "I'm not happy, you asshole, this is horrible. This is literally the worst."

Camus: "Yes, but you can rebel against your absurd condition an-"
Sisyphus: "Oooooh i can rebel?"

Sisyphus: "If only someone had told me sooner that i could rebel during my endless, pointless torture! Why didn't i think of that?"

Sisyphus: "I'll tell you what, if you think it's so easy to be happy, why don't we switch places? You can push the boulder up the hill forever."
Camus: "Uh...actually i just remembered that i have to be somewhere..."
"The absolute nerve of some people."
