Francis Cash #2

Francis: So, how’s the Gym?

Ethan: It’s good. You know, it’s another weight to carry. (Laughs) I crack myself up.

Francis: Yeah, yeah, What’s for suppers?

Ethan: I was thinking we could try this steamed salad…and wait for the kicker, pomegranate juice…

Francis: Mmm Well that sounds healthy and nutritiously delicious.

Ethan: Francis! Put that down!

Francis: What? Do we not eat desserts first?

Francis Cash #1

Francis: Oh hey, don’t mind me, I’m just taking my bath…

Ethan: What?

Francis: Yeah just like last time, remember? Remember how that went?

Oh look, no water…

But I’m all clean…

Ethan: I feel like I’m getting threatened, should I call someone?

Francis: Look at this dirt…disgusting… good thing I’m all clean now.

Francis: Did you bring me a snack?

Ethan: Oh shoot, I forgot the snacks.

Francis: So no snacks?

Ethan: I thought you had the snacks…

Francis: I ate all the snacks. Those were last time snacks. This is this time. What about next time?

Ethan: There will definitely be next time snacks.

Francis: Snax

Beagle in the City #263

Ethan: Hey Buddy, how are my boys?

Francis: I’m starving…famished…look at me, I’m fading away! Hello! Hello! Can you see me! I’m still here! Anyone!

Ethan: Francis, you’re so fat, you couldn’t pull yourself up into the litter box, so you pooped in the floor.

Francis: I don’t know anything about that. When is second breakfast?

Simon: Hey dad!

Ethan: Hey man, we need to talk.

Simon: Ok!

Ethan: Listen, you remember when Garf died?

Simon: Yup yup.

Ethan: Well, I told you the truth then, and I want to tell you the truth now.

Oh boy, Sometimes… moms and dads love each other…but they just need time apart and it’s not a failure or your fault. It just is, like when Garf died, it’s a different kind of ending and beginning.

Simon: You mean, like when Francis punches me in the face and then hides for a while?

Ethan: I mean, without the punching, yes…

Simon: Or like when the pizza man doesn’t come around for a while even though I look out the window and hope really hard?

Ethan: Yes, I guess.

But we both still love you very very much no matter what happens.

Simon: Ok dad. Hey I got you a camera for Christmas!

Ethan: this is your toy…and it’s broke…

Simon: I may have practiced too hard.

Ethan: Hey, thanks for being my best friend.

Simon: Murray Chrissmus! Sweater buddies!
