Francis: So how was work?

Ethan: It was ok. Someone printed a poem and gave it to their girlfriend…

Francis: And they lived –

Ethan: They took a break.

Francis: Well your words don’t exactly inspire romance and dancing in the rain. Have you read your work?

Ethan: They didn’t read the poem just printed something.

Francis: Love of my life…I’ve written you …a paper filled with the alphabet…I give you Red Hands….

Ethan: Heck no, do not give that one to anyone ever…

Francis: I wrote you a poem….The Times …

Ethan: Swing and a miss !

Francis: (boxes the air) I’m gonna fluff you up!

Ethan: ….

Francis: Ahh romance. It’s a good thing you don’t get paid…now there’s no refund.

Francis: Look at this, according to this fb post, the average hooman doesn’t know what he wants until you sell it to him. This is ridicurous. What’s happening to societies.

Simon: I don’t believe it, I just use my nose, hey, I think there’s Cheetos in the trash…

Francis: Cheetos! Hit me. Boy, I didn’t even know I was hungry. But I’m a bit snackish.

Francis: Your polls are slipping …

Ethan: oh yeah?

Francis: I need some snackeroones

Ethan: You don’t say…

Francis: what you need is an enemy

Ethan: I think you mean someone to run against.

Francis: yeah, an enemy, a villain…

Ethan: No, that’s not how it works,

Francis: That’s not what the tv man said .

Ethan: Again, don’t watch the tv.

Francis: Killin kittens and making mittens!

Ethan: ….

Francis: Don’t get me started on the Aliens …

Ethan: That was the X-Files

Francis: Gee dad…don’t you want to believe?

Ethan: Francis, if you let yourself believe in a villain and win lose scenario …you just lose sight of the ideas. You’re not a citizen, or a voter,you become a consumer…always remember your right to think.

Simon: So are we getting snacks?

Francis: Nah he went on one of his life lessons again…

Ethan: Francis! Come here, you can’t run off like that.

Francis: No! I’m going to roll in this dirt.

Francis: Help I’ve fallen and can’t get up.

Ethan: Here let me help you,

Francis: Ha! I’ve hopped to this tree. You cannot touch me.

Ethan: (sigh) Francis, again, that’s, that’s not how you climb a tree…

Ethan: I need a vacation from my animals…

Simon: Vacation! Let’s go to the Cheesecake Factory!

Francis: No, I can’t have dairy…let’s go to the tuna factory!

Ethan: omg…guys! Let’s watch the lion king…I saw the play…it was great…we were in the balcony and all of these puppets go flying out around you …

Francis: Oh boy! Is it good? Is it like the cartoon?

Ethan: well, yeah, like the cartoon came out in the 90s I had the T-shirt and pajamas and the Broadway came out right after that I think…it follows the movie word by word …

Francis: yeah I don’t know, I’ve never seen the movie.

Ethan: Lord help me…

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.

Francis: oh hey, I’m just taking my bath…
Ethan: is this your annual fake bath…
France: I don’t know what you are referring to…
Ethan: You do this all the time so I won’t give you a real bath…

Ethan: oof…
Francis: see, no water, no need, I’m all cleaneded.
Ethan: ok I’ll see you next month. It’s always great chatting.

Simon: …I’m just saying I don’t think it was a dino-sore…but I did hear something…
Ethan: Nah man, I saw one the other night…jagged teeth…hopped around in the bushes…
Simon: whaaaa????
I know, I’ll ask Francis. He never lies.
Ethan: now for the important thing…you want a sammich?
Simon: Sandwiches!

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.
