Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers — a lovers’ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers — your call!

Hallo Rustic, my friend the ploughman. Pleased to meet you!
Likewise Flash, Moi pleasure you well-suited city-slicker!
Look Rustic, we city dwellers have all the fun and thrills of metropolitan life.
Arrh roight Flash, but we folk in the countryside have the benefits of the peace of Nature.
In the city we have the choice and convenience of many different shops and stores.
Here in our rural paradise we grow fresh food and enjoy the pleasure of real natural taste.
Listen Rustic, city life is fast and furious and we can get to the office easily and network.
Arrh but Flash, here on the farm we get up early, work hard, and commute by tractor.
You country bumpkins rarely get the chance to appreciate real art or the theatre.
Yes but city slickers choke on exhaust fumes all day and get real nature, second-hand.
We have the pleasure here in the city, my rustic friend of mixing with many different cultures and sharing the lifestyles of people from all over the world.
Flash moi over cultured, stressed-out nine-to-fiver, the rural life is very peaceful with low crime rates and the luxury of a slow pace of life.
Rustic you stuck-in-the-farmyard-mud fool! I would not swap my network friends and excitement to live in the countryside.
Flash, you are a close-minded, idiotic, unenlightened twit! I would hate to be you, living among thousands of city people and still manage to feel very lonely in your concrete apartment.
