Simon: Bad news dad. I’ve decided I’m not talking to you.
Ethan: Oh really?
Simon: Yah, your polls are dropping. It doesn’t look good.
Ethan: Dang, and I was going to make sandwiches too…
Simon: I mean, I still have to eat. But I’m still not talking to you. Until I get what I want.
Ethan: What do you want ?
Simon: Hold on…I have to ask Francis, I can’t remember.
Francis: Enjoy your SADwiches….We’re voting you out of here.
Ethan: That’s the last time I leave NPR on the radio for you guys…

Dear doggie journal

Spare tires are GREAT.

Dad says we probably ran off the road last night because of the Dinosaurs!

It was OK though. He grabbed me and kept me from falling out the open window.

Dad showed me how the wheel bent when we hit that persons driveway…

My dad is the greatest. I knew he had everything under control. So when someone stopped to say hello, I went and told them “we’ve got this.” Just like dad always says… he says “it’s ok, I’ve got this. Everything is under control.” Real calm like that. It makes me feel better and it must have made them feel better too. Because then they left.

After that, dad asked me to sit in the car and let him know if I saw any mountain lions or bears. He kept asking for a Tea Bar. But I didn’t see any tea in the car so I just waited.

Today, dad says, we are going to go get a REAL jack and a Tea…T Bar and Flash Light.

Simon: dad, dad,dad, is that a sandwich?

Simon: with lettuces, mustard, cheeses, two May toes, and deli sliced ham?

Ethan: Uhm, maybe.

Simon: I too enjoy those things…

I mean, I really wish I had a sandwich.

(Five minutes later)

Ethan: Simon, where’s your brother Francis? Francis? !? Dang. Help me find him…

Simon: Uhm What? How do I do that? He’s not here.

Ethan: your nose!

Simon: dad, don’t be a dumb dumb, I can’t find Francis with my nose! That’s just silly.

Ethan: ok, sure, you can’t count either, but you know when I have three crackers left…

Ethan: Hey buddy, it’s your birthday soon. You’ll be Five. Are you ready?

Simon: Nope, unless there’s cake. I want a chocolate cake.

Ethan: That’s not going to happen.

Ethan: We’ve been through a lot together.

Simon: Best buds for life dad. What about cupcakes?

Ethan: and sandwiches.

Simon: Sannnnndwiches.

Ethan: Ok boys are you ready?
Francis: what is THIS! What are we doing?
Simon: No dad. Not again. I’m not helping again.
Ethan: someone has to read the instructions. Who’s my helper?
Simon: I don’t think you’ve learned your lessons from the other two beds we put together…you’re a writer, you should just leave your bed in the floor.
Francis: according to the instructions and your comprehension…frustration…you’re a Virgo…this will take you a decade.

Ethan: Yeah, but, this time, will be different…

Francis: I don’t know how to tell you this…but we don’t think so.

Francis Cash #7

Francis : So uh, did you have to work yesterday?

Ethan: What kind of stupid question is that?

Francis: I don’t know your schedule!

Ethan: ….

Francis: I know this, I have got to start going to bed earlierz. This staying up till 11pm is not working out so well. I look at the clock and hair balls, it’s 354ams !

I haven’t dried my collar, who’s fault is that!

I’m going to be late to start my olympics!

Ethan: is this the part where you, jump from every corner of the bed….flash from every room….back flip from the window seal? And then sit on my phone so I can’t hear my alarm go off, and cover my nose with your paws so I can’t breathe and wake up?

Francis: well, I mean, if you want to get down to the play by play.

Ethan: …

Francis: yes.
