Prison Attire and Shackles
Buddy: Oh, dear, look at that face. Marcus is unhappy about something.
Cameron: Yes, his feelings have really been hurt. Trampled on, even.
Cyndi: What's the problem?
Micah: Haven't you heard all the grumbling Marcus has been doing the last few days?
Cyndi: Marcus is a puppy, so he's always yipping and yapping and mumbling. What is it this time, Marcus?
Sam: Marcus is too upset to even look at Jan.
Rusty: So what did Jan do now?
Merci: She made friends with Luke's owner, Miss Teresa. She brought Marcus a present the other day.
Marcus: Yes, and I hate it, hate it, hate it! She must hate me too.
Percy: What makes you think she hates you, Marcus?
Marcus: Miss Teresa bought me this evil front lead easy walk harness and now I can't walk properly.
Buddy: I have to admit I would have hated one of those when I was your age but I'm older now and I don't mind wearing one. I don't feel the need - or have the energy - to drag Jan down the road because I want to live life on the fast sidewalk.
Marcus: But I want to drag Jan down the road ahead of you, Sam and Merci. I want to shove off with all 4 feet at the same time and try to make you all run. It builds my neck and shoulder muscles and it gives Jan a good workout. She doesn't need to join a gym because of me. And I'm young so I'm supposed to be in charge on our walks.
Cyndi: But if you ask Jan, she'll tell you she's old so she's supposed to be in charge of your walks.
Cameron: Guess it's a matter of perspective, Marcus. You might hate it, hate it, hate it, but Jan has been seen staring at your new harness and mumbling, "I love it, I love it, I love it."
Merci: Why don't you surprise Jan and nicely thank Miss Teresa for the generous gift? It does fit well and it looks good on you. Under your breath, you can grumble.
Marcus: You mean it? Under my breath I can say I hate the prison attire and shackles and no one will get upset with me?
Sam: Yep. If you don't let anyone hear you, you can say anything you want.
Marcus: Okay. Thank you for the practical gift, Miss Teresa. It makes Jan very happy on our walks. (But it makes me miserable. Why couldn't you buy me something nice, like a dozen soccer balls or a side of bacon?) *big sigh of relief* There, I feel so much better.
Sam: Well, you really blew that. You were supposed to say that last part under your breath!
Marcus: You mean Jan heard it?
Rusty: Kid, you're in deep trouble now. I think everyone heard it!
Percy: We don't have a Mousebreath.com cat interview for you again this week. I take that back. We do have one. We just haven't had a chance to put it together because Jan has hogged the computers In case you don't know why, you can read yesterday's post, Jan has Information Leak. We hope she isn't contagious.
