Susan: Well, it's about time.
Me: Yeah, I know it has taken me a while to get to you guys. I have been going through a rough time.
Susan: Please spare me your personal problems. Save that for your shrink. I meant it's about time because you skipped us!
Me: *blushing* You are right, I did.
Susan: Didn't you learn your ABCs? Wainwright comes before Wan.
Me: I know, I know. I was so eager to get to Pauline's lot, that I accidentally skipped you guys. My apologies.
Susan: I know you have your pets, but you could at least treat the rest of us like we exist.
Me: You've made your point. I am going to slink off now and check on Boyd.
Susan: So you fix the toilet next time.
Boyd: I would, buttercup, if you wouldn't jump ahead and fix it first.
Susan: I asked you do it last month, dear, but you've been too busy watching your nature documentaries to fix it.
Me: Speaking of nature, I think you two need to get out and get some fresh air. How about a trip to the park?
Boyd: This was a great idea. My hobbies and interests normally keep me indoors, but there is nothing like being one with nature and taming wild beasts.
Me: Wild beasts? You caught a minnow, not a shark, Grizzly Adams. Anyway, I will see you two next round.
