Marcus the Temp is Hired

Merci, Sam, Buddy

Buddy:  We have been thinking about what we are thankful for this week and we agreed ....

Marcus:  *tap, tap*

Buddy:  Not now, Marcus, I'm talking.  We agreed we should mention how thankful we are for ...

Marcus:  *tap, tap*

Buddy:  Let me finish, Marcus.  We are ...

Marcus:  *tap, tap*  Buddy, it's important.

Buddy:  *sigh*  Okay, Marcus, what is so important?

Marcus:  The picture.

Sam:  What about it?

Marcus:  I'm not in it.  Why aren't I in it?  I do live here, don't I/

Merci:  Yes, for the moment, you do.

Marcus:  Then I should be in the picture.

Sam:  You're right, you should be, but we couldn't find a photo of all four of us together.  There's you and Merci, you and me, you and Merci and me, or you and me and Buddy.  We have a lot of photos of your ears photobombing the rest of us, but no picture of you and me and Merci and Buddy.

Marcus:  I don't have a vote?

Buddy:  We're sorry, Marcus.  We just assumed you wouldn't mind if we posted a photo without you in it today since you've had so many solo posts.

Marcus:  But if you don't include me, readers will forget what I look like before I'm even gone.

Merci:  I doubt that, Marcus, but since we don't have time to pose for a group shot, how about if we post a photo of you by yourself?

Marcus:  Okay, that will work.  Which photo do you want to post?

Buddy:  Preferably one where you aren't talking.


Sam:  Are you happy now?

Marcus:  Yes.  *tap, tap*

Merci:  Now what:

Marcus:  I just want to say thank you for including me.   

Buddy:  You're welcome.  Now, as I was saying, this week all of us cats and dogs are thankful for our readers.  We appreciate that you keep returning to read our blog and occasionally to leave a comment.  We wish you all a great Thankful Thursday.

Marcus:  *tap, tap*

Buddy:  I thought your problem was resolved.

Marcus:  Well you added my picture to the blog header and labeled me a "temp."  I know temps don't make as much as regular employees, but when do I get paid and how much do I make?

Buddy:  *loud groan*

Sam:  I got this, Buddy.  Marcus, as of this moment, you're no longer a temp, you're a regular employee and you'll get paid the same amount as the rest of us..

Marcus:  Oh, that's great.  You guys are finally going to take me seriously.  How much do you make?

Merci:  Nothing, Marcus.  Not a penny.

Note: For the record, Marcus has been officially "hired" for no pay.  He has not been adopted, although we would dearly love to adopt him.  We don't want you to be confused.

We are joining Pepi Smart Dog for Thankful Thursday.

And co-hosts Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a husky for Thoughtless Thursday.
