Ethan: Hey what is wrong man? Breathe, now, sit down. Ok. Much better.

Simon: Someone stole the bed. I know, because I was going to bed, but it’s not there because SOMEONE STOLE it!

Ethan: No one stole it.

Simon: They didn’t ?

Ethan: Nah, it was just Aliens. You know, (whistles X-Files theme)

Simon: I knew it!

Ethan: No, I’m putting together a new bed. Are you gonna help me or not?

Simon: I don’t think we can get this done in time for bed..

Ethan: Sure we can!

Ethan: I may have made a miscalculation on the difficulty of this…

12 hours later. Or, the next day.

(Update)

Garf passed away during the morning. 06/22/2019

He had been struggling with a collapsing trachea. Me and Simon found him this morning. I wrote this to prepare myself for the inevitable a couple of days ago. He will be greatly missed but I know he was happy. )

Garfunkel: I was born on the streets, fighting for a place to eat, covered in fleas, and broken teeth. And then I got adopted, and suddenly,man… I didn’t know it could be so good.

Meals everyday, and Jazz, Quincy Jones, Frank Sinatra, Dino, man I’m talking about the groove brotha…

It’s been nice…

And the crime shows

The sunny days in the park

Man I’ve lived a good life…

The back scratches I’m going to miss…

But it’s ok…

Ethan: You know, it’s ok if you have to go buddy…

I wish you could stay, but you’ve been the absolute joy and it’s been so good taking care of you. You’re a good boy. Thank you for being my friend. I won’t hold it against you if you are tired. I understand. I’ll tell you a secret, you’re my favorite.

Simon: Dad, What is wrong with Garf?

Ethan: He’s just old buddy, and he’s got to go. Everything eventually has to go.

Simon: will I go?

Ethan: Well, yeah, one day, you and I both will.

Simon: Well, if you’re brave I’ll be brave. And if we both have to go one day, I guess I won’t be scared.

We will still play catch though right?

Ethan: You bet, and we will cook together too.

Simon: Cool.

Simon: Every day, dad comes home on lunches, and we go to the outside. It’s great. We play for days.

Ethan: You realize, it’s only one hour. And most people actually get to eat on their lunch.

Garfunkel: Well I’m just a starvin’ marvin, just a starvin’ marvin, I ain’t eat in three whole days!

Ethan: What are you singing? What is this?

Garfunkel: what if we all go and get sammiches.

Ethan: How about peanut butter and you guys go to the bathroom like you’re supposed to. I’m about to have to leave.

Simon: Whaaat what do you have left, a week, three days? Is it 57 minutes! No not the minutes! They are so sad!

Ethan: that’s it, I’m leaving. I’m never coming back. I’ll send you a postcard.

Garfunkel: Wait for me! Bum bum dum dum starvin’ marvin…
