Ethan: How are you feeling today boys? You want to do stuff today or just be lazy? Francis: I’m feeling kind of snackish…maybe the porch. Ethan: The other day I asked you and you didn’t want to do ANYTHING. Francis: Well you always want to go cave diving or bike jumping or book stores! Climb mountainy mountains! Ethan: I asked if you wanted to go to the park… Francis: Oh…wheely? Wows…I don’t ‘member that…
Ethan: lets go run. You run while I ride my bike… Francis: OUTSIDES?? Isn’t there danimals out there? Ethan: here we go… Simon: I think I saw a ground hog once, but I can’t find him now, they are such good hiders! Francis: I’ll camp inside, I’ve got my shows… (Later) Ethan: LISTEN, I’m sorry I ran over you… But you can’t just run in front of me like that… Simon: Well I had to sniff a rock dad, it was a really cool rock too and I thought I have the right of way, can’t I cross anytime… Ethan: What is this nonsense, where did you get this? Simon: Francis… Ethan: Let’s not listen to Francis…the cat that thinks camping is sleeping ten feet from the porch light… Besides that…you didn’t even see the snake in the road Francis: Vipers!
Ethan: I don’t care what you thought you saw, you have to come inside now and take a bath. Or I can just use the water hose… Simon: It was really there though, it was a ground hog, dad. I can smell it. I have to go find it. Ethan: It’s not gonna happen, man. Francis: I was there, kind of, through the windows, it boxed at his nose… Francis: Face it…he’s not into the poems…He’s into the wrestling… Ethan: Oh god…. Simon: You gotta let me be a hound dog, dad. I gotta use my nose. Francis: Let him joins the circus. Ethan: Let me tell you both a story about the digging-est dog…
Francis: Heya wassup. Ethan: man, I don’t know what was in the air today, but it was busy… Simon: (sniffs air) some pizza, some bacon, some eggos, Ethan: that’s what’s in the fridge… Simon: Oh… Francis: Sit down, fluff up, drink a beers… Ethan: wait, what did y’all DO while I was gone??? Simon: ….. Francis: we napped, and we watched doctor who’s and simons threw up in the bed…and we played with the tennis ball… Ethan: wait! Ahhh man…you want a popsicle? Francis: I want purple! Ethan: Not you,you’re fine… Francis: (cough cough) oh no’s no’s no’s no’s..I gots the sick. Simon: I don’t believe he’s ever been sick. Ethan: Well, he’s never ate from the trash.
Simon: We have here, the sad poet, in his natural habitat. Francis: Lost! The wordy words! The alphabits! Ethan: Guys, I’m literally, right here… Simon: uh hey dad, so it’s almost natural poetry month. Ethan: National. Simon: BananaWrimo! Ethan: Oh god…that’s novel month and it’s in November. Francis: You better find your wordy words. Simon: A poem a day! All Month! Francis: Or you can paws a poem on stagez! Or memories one. Ethan: Oh god….I need a drink.
We ran through Every midnight pain We were down Where There is no survivors No one knows What will And will not come Maybe it’s fate Maybe it’s just How the fires burn But babe Good god babe No one could ever say We didn’t walk these roads We didn’t carry the load We didn’t fight against Our destruction And hey there Sister Can you remember The early morning The smell of winter Over this town And hey there Babe I can remember The smell of your perfume Your head on my shoulder Eyes so bright And even the rain Doesn’t bother To fight What no one knows …. And We ran these roads We took the poison We took the chances Some of us left But someone always comes back And we pick up Right where we left off Both feet on the ground Keeping rough hands Dreaming About what’s never been – Down Where the midnight fire is … The whiskey is smoother And the women are stronger And they kiss with a fire We wake up with the morning Building a dream In the heart of this town….
Simon: Oh is that O-E-Os? Ethan: Yeah man. Simon: I can’t remember if I like those or not… Ethan: seriously? Simon: I probably do tho. Ethan: You ate a whole pack yesterday. I had to buy more today. Simon: Well,gee dad. That was yesterday’s nose. It’s different everyday.
Simon: What if we had pizza Francis: I want chicken nuggets! FIFTY chicken nuggets. Ethan: we’re having…we’re having…Space soup. Simon: This isn’t very promising. Ethan: It’s very good. You’ll like it. Francis: Where’s the space? I don’t see the space? Are you sure you’re making this right? Simon: are we poor? You can hit me with it dad. I’m a big dog. Francis: oooh tuna, what’s poor? Is that in this ? Ethan: What! (Slams counter) nonsense! You gentlemen, are the richest scoundrels I personally know.
